Great food, great atmosphere

We were here for a wedding party. The food provided was plentiful and very tasty. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The ambience is great. Definitely worth a visit

A group of us recently visited the Font for an evening meal, having been there about 18 months ago and really enjoyed the food, we thought it would be a good venue for a birthday celebration. The menu was limited to begin with, as it was just the same lunch time menu (jacket potatoes, salads and sandwiches) and apart from... More

Ironbridge is a beautiful place and there are so many lovely cafe's and eateries to visit, it's a shame we chose one of the worst ones! We visited on a Bank Holiday Monday and chose the place because it looks once and is dog friendly. Firstly, I asked for a smoothie, to be told 'sorry we have no smoothies'. Not... More

First time at this venue - arrived with friends on a Sunday lunchtime. On arrival we were not greeted at all - we found this strange there were at least four members of staff just stood by the bar looking at us. We found our menus and waited for service which didn't arrive - thus I eventually went to the... More

Popped in here in the hope of a nice pizza after reading reviews. Nothing more than a bit of a grubby cafe... Rugby on big screen really loud. Not particularly tidy- had a glass of wine and left!!

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