Popped in for lunch and were not disappointed. The list of teas was quite something and we can honestly say, it was the best Earl Grey we've had in ages (and we drink a lot of it). The place was pretty busy for a Friday lunchtime but service was friendly and prompt. The 'specials' were tempting and good value considering... More

Very pleasant service - lovely cappuccino coffees. Very noisy fan inside, Pleasant courtyard but was a little cold to sit out today. We didn't eat but the food looked lovely. A fantastic assortment of teas are available.

We called at the Tea Emporium with Grandchildren after a visit to Ironbridge Gorge Museum. In spite of the fact the place was very busy we all enjoyed an excellent, reasonably price lunch served promptly by friendly staff. Well worth a visit if only to remind oneself what proper tea tastes like!

What an intriguing little emporium this is. The tea (and there's lots of choice) tastes clean, fresh and pure which is quite an experience. I ordered the mozzarella open toastie and it was gorgeous, just the right amount. The prices are very reasonable and the staff are super friendly. You can even buy the tea leaves too. I'm hooked.

We visited on a busy Saturday afternoon and had to squeeze into a table. To be fair we were looking for tea and a cake, but there really was very little cake choice available! (Extensive tea selection though). The tea shop is very old fashioned, but in a tired way not a vintage way. Also I thought £5 for a... More

Our third visit to the Tea Emporium and our first stop whenever we visit Ironbridge. Choices today were a Jumbo Mocha with Cream, Hot Chocolate with Cream and Marshmallows and a Hot Chocolate with Cream. All the drinks were great and especially piping hot during a chilly spell. The seating outdoors couldn't be better placed, with perfect views of the... More

Lovely tea shop serving very nice food and tea/coffee . All day breakfast and "make your own breakfast" really excellent quality. Cakes and scones looked amazing, staff friendly and efficient. Only downside was tea was a little cold and the outside tables are very small for more tham two people

We didn't eat but the menu looked delicious and well thought out. We arrived not long before closing but the staff were very accommodating, they didn't rush us at all and were very caring towards an elderly couple who seemed to be regulars. The drinks were high quality and lovely. The place itself was cosy, has a great terrace and... More
