Lovely chilled atmosphere

I love just hanging out here, food is quality, especially the hand made pizzas, great range of drinks both alcoholic and non alcholic, friendly staff, take the papers and chill over a lazy Sunday morning, just lush!

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.

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
