We found this little gem quite by accident - we had been looking for places that were dog friendly and had read that there was a coffee shop there that welcomed dogs. We had a lovely coffee and cake and our little dog was petted...More

I suppose Ironbridge has a few antique places but I'm sure that none are as interesting or well run as this one. I could spend ages looking at the old tools while my wife potters around the antiques. However the real gem is the tea...More

Why are children discriminated against in this tea rooms via 'Adult Only' labelled seating? I was absolutely appalled at seeing this and it should not be allowed, dogs/walkers/cyclists are welcomed but not our children? Would this cafe be allowed to label seating as for black/white persons use only? Absolutely not and so why discriminate against children. Will be speaking to the local MP and press about this.
