good food

A last minute trip to Ironbridge, we stopped for a sandwich we ordered Pulled Pork and mozzarella Baguettes served with salad and tortilla chips And a side order of a big bowl of chip they were to die for. Wasn’t cheap but very nice

not only did we eat here but stayed for one night. very nice room, clean and comfortable bed, nice bathroom. food was a little overpriced, i had the mixed grill, all the meat was rather dry, steak over cooked for my liking, my partner had the lamb moussaka which she enjoyed. the sweets where well over priced at £6.95 each....

A group of us who were new to the area wanted somewhere to go for a nice meal after performing at a nearby outdoor event all day. We happened across The Malthouse by chance and gave it a try because it looked welcoming from the road. We weren't disappointed. The décor was interesting, the service was attentive and the food...

So, I would have given the Malthouse a 4/5 anyway based upon the excellent food and service. But my stupidity has moved my rating to a 5/5. Having visited Blists Hill and looking for a place for lunch we park up and stroll up to the Malthouse. I must say I was a little put off the red and black... More

After a bad experience at the Huntsman, we drove to the Malthouse and what a difference, First we were greeted as we entered with a cheery Hi Guys, how can we help you? It was about 5pm and we asked for a table for 6 people. No problem, use this one, we need it back by 8. The menu was... More

The Malthouse is situated along 'The Wharfage' in Ironbridge just a short walk down from the bridge itself. The restaurant has outdoor seating at the front and catches the sun in the evening so a really nice spot to eat outside. The interior design is quite snazzy with a red contemporary theme although i don't think it really does the... More

We visited on a mid afternoon weekday. Quite busy on a chilly though very sunny day, pleased to find quite an extensive selection of dishes and most people were eating which is always a good sign. We had a lovely window table and were greeted almost at once by a very friendly staff member ( Jamie ?) who took our... More

Visited on Sunday evening - shown to table by waitress who clearly didn't want to be there. Unfortunately we had to remind her of something she had forgotten and she made it patently obvious that she resented having to wait at tables. A waiter brought our meals and my wife's vegetarian meal was very good. I had ribs which had... More

The food was hot. I had chips and cheese just for a light snack. When the food arrived the chips were perfect. The cheese was possible a 200g block grated and that wasn't an exaggeration there really was no cutting back there. My only complaint would be to bring your condiments in line with the quality of the food you... More

Limited menu very dark and uninviting although staff very welcoming. Could do with providing a better variety of lunchtime snacks.
