As I strolled into the complex the sound of the local football commentary pounded my ears, I felt like I was in one of London's finest east end council houses! Not to mention the smell of lard in the place, smelt like Adelle's fridge. Despite the awful building that the owners would call a "restaurant" I decided to purchase myself... More

This restaurant came as a pleasant surprise to me as I indulged in one of their chilled orange juices, which was presented in a delightful abstractly designed glass. As I gracefully slurped this orange juice it gave me an epiphany, similar to the one Homer Simpson experienced on 'The Simpsons Movie'. The orange juice spoke to me, and explained that... More

I stepped into this establishment one Friday afternoon and what struck me first was the musky smell of leather, like a sex offender's Vauxhall. I ordered their finest glass of cold orange juice and it was more moist than Mia Khalifa's husband's middle finger - which is good. As the sign on the front entrance informed me there is free...

Font Italia closed a few months ago. The owner is seeking a tenant I believe. The place is modern and well equipped so hopefully will open again for food and drinks. I'll keep you posted!

The Font Italia serves the best coffee in Ironbridge - this from someone who spends three months every year in Tuscany. The problem is that it lies a few steps from the "natural centre" of Ironbridge meaning visitors are faced with a number of alternatives before they are likely to see this one. In the winter it is hardly open... More

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
