After a walk around Ironbridge We decided to have lunch here as it looked over the bridge. The menu had a good choice. Food was good. The staff were helpful and friendly. Have a look around the walls at the photos of bygone years at the bridge. they have a cosy little snug at the rear with an interesting painting... More

The Tontine is right by the Iron bridge. When it is sunny and warm the tables outside are a good place to sit albeit with traffic noise. It should be a magnificent hotel but its rather dingy tired and unappealing.

Many years since visiting the Tontine and pleasantly surprised. When all other bars and pubs in Ironbridge were private parties only or charging admission, The Tontine welcomed us and we found their drinks prices less expensive than our usual Pub. We will definitely go there again.

I would definitely not recommend this place to anybody. Me and my partner stopped here about a year ago, the staff were okay but not great and we never went into the bar at that time. This time we were with family for an early Christmas weekend away, we didn't stop here but being regular visitors to Ionbridge we did... More

Three of us bought a real ale beer and sat outside in the warm sunshine. The inside is a bit 'spit and sawdust'.

Very impressive 400 year old building frontage. I had a Vegetarian Lasagne, served quickly, friendly restaurant assistants. Only think is that there was no Garlic Bread

Located opposite the famous Ironbridge this hotel was built in 1784 and apparently has enjoyed Royal visitors in its time. They were all long gone by the time we visited but seemingly so were everyone else. However, in truth we went there for our evening meal and the lack of people inside allowed me to order immediately we walked in.... More
