For some reason this never got posted previously after our visit in March. Reading some of the latest reviews it appears they maybe getting back on track but we were left with a very sour taste about the place after our visit so much so that it has a damaged reputation amongst our friends & family. They will need to... More

Just returned from our meal at The Meadow. We had the excellent value 'steak night' offer and couldn't fault it (and I can be a bit picky sometimes). The service was good and the chef Michelle excellent. I saw other people's meals being served and they all looked very appetising. There were no complaints from any diners. I can't understand...

We visited the meadow on Friday 8th May and what a fabulous experience we had. After reading a few mixed reviews we weren't sure if to gamble it, but with steak on the brain we gave it a chance. How glad we were. Amazing food, the best fillet and ribeye in a very long time and cooked to perfection, with... More

Our family have been to The Meadow on a number of occasions, usually lunch, and usually to take advantage of the 2 courses for £9.95 menu, with excellent ham, egg & chips followed by Ironbridge Mess.... today's visit has resulted in major disappointment as it seems a change in management is to blame for the loss of the value 2...

We arrived and were seated at 7:45, our order was taken at 8. The starters came at 8:25. The starters were very tasty and reasonably sized. The main course was then served at 9:20. The tuna was not as stated on the menu, no bell peppers. The steaks were tough and it was not served with flat field mushrooms. These... More

We have been going to The Meadow for 17 years since we first met. This was my husband's treat to cheer me up and I opted to go back to The Meadow. Three times the drinks order was taken before we finally got served. We waited for our order to be taken and then after an enjoyable main course, we... More

We used to enjoy dining here but the food quality has got worse last a few times. Most recent visit the service was shocking 20 min wait before getting to order drinks, 45 min wait before anyone getting the food order ...... They haven't got any potatoes! Bar staff just chatting behind the bar....... We Def wouldn't come back

Visited for the first time for dinner after reviewing their website. By chance and it was a steak and grill Wednesday, 2 steaks and a bottle of wine for £28. Well there was 3 of us but that's the luck of the draw I guess. Looks a good offer when compared to the main menu. However.... Our waitress seemed to... More

This was a meal for our after-show cast party. We had ordered in advance (a menu and spreadsheet for recording orders was provided) and the food all arrived as ordered. We were a group of 28!! The food took some time to arrive, but it was worth the wait - people were very happy with the steaks; and I had... More
