I've been to the Telford Arms a few times, and felt it only right that I should (eventually!) write a review. I've been there alone, with a friend and with a group, but each time the staff have been so friendly and welcoming - this is a really friendly, warm place to hang out in pleasantly designed, clean and traditional surroundings.
Onto the food! Basically, everything I've ever eaten there has been delicious. The menu consists mostly of traditional, relatively simple options, but the execution is what elevates the Telford above many of the other local eateries. The food is freshly-prepared with really nice ingredients, and there's obviously some real love and attention paid to the spicing and other small but important details of the meal. The fish I had a while ago was huge, fresh and tender with a very crispy, light batter - such a big meal I couldn't finish it! When I went there with a friend for a pre-show dinner two nights ago, we both chose one of the vegetarian options - mushroom stroganoff with rice. It was absolutely delicious with lovely spices and seasonings, and we were both left full and impressed, ready for our night out on the town.
In short, the Telford Arms is a reliable, friendly, welcoming place which offers delicious, traditional meals in pleasant surroundings. Even though it's a little out of my way to get there, it's somewhere I'll always make an effort to visit. Keep doing what you're doing!
