Went for midweek evening drinks and it was everything we wanted. Good ale, unobtrusive music and a comfy setting.

I decided not to eat here mainly because of the smell of cigarettes wafting in from outside. Not really their fault but that was the reason.

Ignore the querky decor. The food is excellent, very well prepared, very well presented and down right yummy. We were staying at another hotel, but went looking for an evening meal on a Tuesday and by chance this was the first we found. We can back every night. The staff are lovely and friendly. The beer is very well kept... More

We visited The Malthouse a couple of nights in the week whilst staying elsewhere in Ironbridge. Service was very good, we chose from the 'pub food' menu and the food was excellent - the Cajun Chicken Breast Burger was probably the best chicken burger I've ever had. There was a good choice of cask beers, all of which were very... More

We were recommended to go here, so we took up the recommendation. On asking for a table for two we were lead to a table where there were others already eating, but most of the tables were taken by people just drinking. It was a typical pub setting, but nothing remarkable apart from the bright red décor. We ordered the... More

First time in the Malthouse and it certainly will not be the last. I had the Chicken and bacon pie, which was cooked to perfection and gave you that wondrous taste of being an English farmer tucking into real food. My wife had the Cajun chicken burger which by her own admission was the tastiest burger she had ever had,... More

I was in Telford with a colleague on a business course but I always like to look up places to see whilst in the area and if I have the time. So off to Ironbridge we went as how can you not visit a UNESCO world heritage site when you have the chance, so off we went, did the tourist... More

Found this gem while visiting the Ironbridge. A truly exceptional restaurant. A perfect medium cooked steak is hard to come by with it being either over or under cooked. Not here the steak was cooked to perfection, the location was ideal being just a few hundred yards from the Iron Bridge and the Ales on sale were a delight. If... More

Travelled with my partner from Newcastle upon Tyne for a driving experience based in Stafford; I had previously rang and asked for early check in and was told they would do their best but couldn't promise anything which I understand. We arrived around 1pm on Saturday 15th August, driving was taking place at 3pm and was 45mins drive away. When... More
