A neatly laid out collection of stalls with well priced items. The cafe is a gem with great food well presented and served. The two young ladies who serve are treasures, able to hold a conversation and engage with customers, an ability that is so often lacking. I would recommend it without hesitation as a 'must visit, in Ironbridge. Alfie... More

Only just discovered this little gem as I personally think it is poorly signposted with what is available as I had not been tempted in before. Loved the little craft stalls, most with very good prices,and the fact the dog could come in. Also loved the vintage shop and teddy bear shop where dogs are not allowed. There is also... More

This is a fabulous place to visit for a browse, always loads of fabulous things to look at, loads of variety I usually find some little nick nack I really need! The tea room is superb, the staff are really friendly, always smiling and happy to help. The homemade cake is always exceptional, and I've often had to have double... More

This is my all time favourite place to meet my friends for a relaxing afternoon. There is always so much to see here you can lose track of time. With a variety of small independent businesses trading from there there is always something new so everytime I go I fall in love with something new and unexpected. Often one off... More

A real treasure trove. Spent an hour browsing around. So much to see. Something to interest everyone. Collectors will love rummaging through all the items for a bargain.

Nice place, not amazing but good place to find quirky antiques and craft items, due to small isles might be a bit stressful if you have very small children. It has a small nice licensed tea room inside with great cakes but not an extensive menu (also normal cream not clotted cream on cream tea), there is seating outside with... More

Thanks for your comments, not quite sure what "Nice Average" means though, you use the word "nice" a lot in your review but an "average" overall rating. There are some inaccuracies in your observations that I would like to clarify. 1) Clotted cream - We ALWAYS serve clotted cream with a cream tea, who wouldn't? So don't understand why you... More

We called in yesterday originally for a takeaway icecream. Then we found that they are dog friendly and as we had our dog with us we decided we had to venture in. We were made very welcome especially as my wife was in her wheelchair. The owner helped us find a suitable table and as it was a nice day... More
