Visited the Iron Bridge on way home from elsewhere and decided to eat out. Looked in my trusty good pub guide and Lo and behold we were literally parked outside this establishment which was listed.

Excellent service. Very friendly and quick. My husband and I opted for the roast turkey. It came on the plate with roast potatoes and stuffing balls and cranberry sauce on the top of the meat. The veg was served in a separate dish. The turkey was tender but the cranberry was very sweet and it had permeated the meat with... More

After a disappointing meal elsewhere we decided to give this place a shot. On walking in we were a bit taken aback by the décor with red walls and black and red furniture - not ideal for a relaxing meal/ambience. However we were very pleasantly surprised that the menu was so good with a separate vegetarian menu, which we were... More

Tasty and large meals. Nice staff. The rsturaubt area is nice and relaxing, not too bright or too dark. Food and drinks are definitely overpriced though.

If you can get past the overload of red paint & furnishings, the least was great, great menu, fair priced. Helpful staff. Music room with live band got busy but not a bad atmosphere really. Seemed like the whole of the area was in there.

This place has a terrific atmosphere on a Saturday night when they have a live band on. We were a large pre booked party. Out seating area was roped off. We dined then were able to push our tables back and dance. We all had a meal and most were happy. However, I ordered a duck and noodle dish at... More

I've visited the malt house multiple times but today was particularly disappointing. Food arrived on cold plates, with paprika dressing the edge which is very old fashioned. The food wasn't hot either, and for the price we all paid, was very average. Cutlery arrived 5 mins after the food, so we were sat there whilst it got even colder, and... More
