Description: With a sunny light-filled dining room and two AA Rosettes, Chez Maw restaurant in Shropshire is guaranteed to impress even the most fanatical foodies. Located in Ironbridge near Telford, Chez Maw enjoys picturesque views looking out over the parklands, gardens and the River Severn - ideal for post-dining strolls - and the understated dining room has been recently refurbished in a chic palette of vanilla and blonde wood. The restaurant has a brilliant modern British menu, and we love the pressed Wenlock Edge ham hock and parsley terrine with red cabbage and apple puree; the fillet of Welsh Black beef cooked in a shallot marinade served with potato fondant, buttered spinach and a poached egg; and the mocha panna cotta.

I hadn't realised when I booked the restaurant that it was part of a hotel - we usually avoid hotel restaurants like the plague,so I was genuinly surprised at the atmosphere and service along with a very nice menu. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was excellent. We would definately return if we are in the area... More

First visit upon recommendation , and was not disappointed . The bar area is tucked around the riverside of the hotel , and a little tricky to find in the dark. Initial welcome was warm , and menus explained nicely by Lee who seemed very competent and efficient . Service was well executed by a young team and the evening... More

Greeted by friendly staff who were attentive right from the moment we arrived. Bottle of bubbly ordered and brought over to us at the bar in an ice bucket and poured (unlike so many restaurants now where they plonk it on the bar and leave it to you to pour!) The food was divine! I had haddock velouté, lamb shoulder... More

Group of four friends ate as part of an overnight stay at The Valley Hotel. Food and wine excellent, we had two courses, main and desert. We had sea bass and lamb as mains and carrot and date cake, creme brulee and an excellent cheese board. The service was excellent.

Family birthday meal on a Saturday night, the staff were all welcoming, pleasant and efficient, the atmosphere nice and the layout of bar / dining areas good. All four starters and mains were of excellent standard, all meats cooked to perfection for our choice, and not a scrap left on any plate! Not the cheapest, but one of the best... More

Food was absolutely delicious, and I savoured every mouthful. Waiting staff are very professional and equally friendly, and the atmosphere in the restaurant was just right. Thank you for a beautiful meal.

As the title of this review suggests..............Don't give a pescetarian......pancetta! The pan fried sea bream sounded very good from its description on the menu, perfect for a non meateater. However when it turned up it had some decorative crisp stuck in the top of it. It wasn't until a bite was taken that we realised what it was. There was... More
