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.

A gem in Ironbridge

Visited on a Monday evening due to a recommendation from a colleague. The AA rosetted restaurant is located in an idyllic location close to the Ironbridge. The service was excellent as was the ambiance. I referred the steak which was promptly served. Top quality although a ever so slightly salty. Desert of chocolate tart was superb. Will definitely return.

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and ate in the restaurant 3 evenings. The food and service were first class. The restaurant has lovely views of the garden and park. It was lovely to have a table by the window on one of the evenings. We considered the drinks prices to be very reasonable. Would definitely return when next... More

This restaurant is perfect for me. It is very attractive and although not large, it certainly isn't lacking in space between the tables. It has lovely views over gardens in the summer but would be very cosy in winter. The menu is not extensive but the food is of a very high quality and the staff are superb. They are... More

Having been let down very badly by The Meadows, we called on speck on Friday evening at 9pm to be served with a delightful meal. Good choice of menu, and nothing too much trouble for the chef to accommodate my husband's gluten free dietary requirements - they catered for his needs brilliantly (it's not easy to eat out without prior...

There was nothing to dislike even though I don't eat either Mayo or cream they adapted the food for me. On the first night I had preordered a desert that included cream and written no cream on the side so they quietly approached me and informed me that my choice contained cream so asked what would I like instead.

My fiancé and I popped in for Sunday lunch today, however on arrival we waited until someone decided to acknowledge us. Bear in mind, the restaurant had not a single diner. Not one. It was a ghost town. Anyway, we then were left alone again and made to wait even longer for another chap to appear who had 'supervisor' on... More

It is a while since we have visited this restaurant but were so pleased to find that everything we enjoyed about it last time was also true this time: great food well presented; friendly and efficient service; nice atmosphere. All together a top night.

Excellent quality, selection of dishes and restaurant staff. I have enjoyed dinner here on eight occasions during months of February to May and I have never been disappointed. It is well used by locals with a discerning palate.
