Nice service and good food

Not very busy but then it was a wet Monday in February. Service was very efficient, food was tasty and good value for money.

Disappointing and over-priced food after a very long wait. Seriously not worth it in a town with so many other places to eat.

We were returning to Ironbridge after a long walk along the old railway line to Coalport on a cold winter's afternoon. We received a very warm welcome from the staff and enjoyed some much needed refreshments. It is good to go to a cafe where you can get an excellent pot of tea and having warmed up, had a chilled...

My husband and I visit here regularly - usually on a Saturday for brunch or lunch. The service is always friendly and the food really tasty and excellent value for money. I'm quite fussy about eating out and one poor (or below average) meal is often enough to put me off visiting a restaurant again (even if we've visited a... More

We went to the Font for a Sunday lunchtime snack, and as per usual Gary did not disappoint. He prepares all the food freshly himself and uses only the best ingredients. The salad was fantastic, fresh and crispy, and the chicken was tasty and plentiful. As a healthy, tasty lunchtime snack his salads are the best. The beer, ok it... More

Despite being one person down and arriving (unfashionably) late we were given a very warm welcome. The food is freshly prepared, delicious and plentiful (what remained was boxed so we could take it home!). Very child friendly (took my 8yo who asked when we were coming back when we left!). The staff were extremely helpful, service was great and the... More

A group of 6 of us came for a bite to eat, the young girl on the till gave rubbish customer service and it seemed she was unfamiliar with the till and the menu! When asking for a iced coffee i was told 'we don't do them' and she had to be corrected. I then ordered a soup with brown... More

Made to feel very welcome, including our 11 year old son. Super food and relaxing atmosphere. A short walk from spectacular views of the Ironbridge. The Ploughmans supper was lovely, Pizza's excellent too. Good quality wine.

Had a delicious steak ciabatta for lunch. Not only tasty but large and surprisingly cheap with a generous and fresh salad. The other meals were also very good. Will definitely be back!
