This smart and sassy large cafe/ restaurant was a find in lacklustre Ironbridge, a welcome change from the usual tourist tea shops. Smart brown sofas and minimalist bar inside, huge canopy and interesting seating sets outside. And I visited as a muddy, older rambler, so their smiles and then top notch food were very much appreciated.

Gorgeous venue, sitting in the sunshine with by far the best cappachino for miles ( I live locally and am a coffee snob, so I know!) also a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. A perfectly lovely start to Sunday morning. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The thing I love most is that dogs are welcome. Great place to... More

Just stopped off here for a chat and drink with a mate, nice outdoor suntrap seating area with parasols, nice decor with sofas, didn't have the food but It all smelt good. Good service, they bring the drinks to you. It's just in sight on the bridge

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

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
