Lovely tea room with a fantastic choice of food. We called in for a sandwich and ended up with a banquet. The food is excellent lots of it and reasonably priced if you're in iron bridge don't miss it. The choice of teas is mind boggling !

The Coffee & Tea is second to none, with a huge range of loose leaf tea to choose from. Which is available to take home with you, and the prices are very reasonable. Excellent table service, I can only comment on the Breakfasts which are of a high standard because we only go in in the morning time. When the... More

The Tea Emporium offered good food and a great cup of tea. The tea was brewed in a glass tea pot using loose tea of your choice. The flavour was excellent. It was so good that we bought a tea pot and tea to take home.

Worth the visit. Tucked away the Emporium offered good food and service. We were also able to buy glass teapot which takes loose tea something we had been looking for, for a long time. It also offered loose tea and coffee. Very good

We called in here for a snacky lunch and chose warm salads from the specials board. They were both really good, and the service was friendly.

I live not too far away from Ironbridge, but once I introduced my boyfriend to the tea room he kept wanting to go back!!! The food is top quality, we tend now go for breakfast, the full English is very plentiful, tasty and would set anyone up for the day! For lunch my favourite is the Brie and cranberry on... More

Lovely tea room in a good position in the centre of Ironbridge. Not just lovely cakes, breakfast and snacks but lovely gluten free filled rolls. The chicken and bacon was delicious. The choice of teas and coffees was great too.
