I came here because Cleo's had a queue of 17 people before me at the bar (see other review). It was quiet, very quiet, 2 people at the bar and a barmaid that suffered from slow motion. The decor is clean and tidy, yet only suited for filming 'Robins Nest'. It's an interesting journey into the late 70s. I was... More

The beer here was one of the nicest pints I have had for a long time. Creamy well kept etc etc. The food. Hmmmmmmmmmmm. Undercooked chips, greasy fish. Not expensive but lacking any quality

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'.
