Traditional pub with parking just down the road from the centre of Ironbridge. Lunch for 4 adults and 7 kids. Great lunch with good size portions and excellent service. Kids portions were a very good size.

We met friends here last Saturday evening for quick bite to eat. A traditional style cosy pub with good beer, service was prompt and staff friendly and helpful, we all enjoyed a very tasty steak. It has a reasonable size car park too for those who are driving.

We stayed half board and the breakfast...
