The setting is great and really close to the Ironbridge itself. You could just spend a few hours sitting people watching and drinking coffee however i think it's really quite expensive for what it is and the coffee was not very strong and mostly froth. It's not enough to put me off going again and I am being picky however... More

Thank you ever so much for taking the time to leave us a review. I totally take on board your comment about 'not very Italian', I agree! We are in the process of creating a new image for The Font which includes changing this element. Just to let you know, we also have a varied ice-cream sundae menu for puddings... More

I went to The Font on a Saturday afternoon to catch up with family over a delicious meal. The food was incredible, colourful with large portions & meal to remember! The staff were so friendly & welcoming and the service was impeccable! I definitely intend to re-visit Ironbridge and have an attempt at finishing a HUGE salad dish. Thank you... More

We love popping into the Font for a tipple and a chat. Great choice of drinks and on our last visit we had an excellent glass of Prosecco whilst we waited for the freshly prepared chicken salad of generous proportions followed by the best latte coffee in Ironbridge. It is very clean and both child and dog friendly. Staff are... More

Went here for a few drinks with friends and would definitely return. Staff were friendly and attentive and the whole place was clean and nicely decorated. It was fairly busy but there was plenty of seats inside and out. Only criticism is the lack of toilets and not due to lack of space. Large room with only one toilet for... More

Hello DandL24, I must admit, I am rather disappointed at the tone of this review with regards to our toilet facilities. Firstly I will just point our that our closest two competitor's (within a stonesthrow of our business) don't even have their own toilet facilities and send paying customers to the public toilets! We have two separate bathrooms for men... More

Ordered four breakfasts consisting of bacon, scrambled egg and beans, all delicious and freshly made. The orange juice was freshly squeezed and the hot chocolate was perfect.
