Good food and some unusual things on offer. Expensive which you don't mind paying for but as we were staying in the hotel and my husband doesn't like unusual food, he asked for chicken and chips for which he was asked to pay £16.95!

We went here for a Friday evening meal and where very impressed, it was a last minute booking and we where accommodated well. The food was to an excellent standard and we did not have to wait around for a long time. I had the BBQ pork to start and the braised pulled Lamb for main. Followed by the cheese... More

With a sunny light-filled dining room and two AA Rosettes, Chez Maw restaurant in Shropshire is guaranteed to impress even the most fanatical foodies. Located in Ironbridge near Telford, Chez Maw enjoys picturesque views looking out over the parklands, gardens and the River Severn - ideal for post-dining strolls - and the understated dining room has been recently refurbished in a chic palette of vanilla and blonde wood. The restaurant has a brilliant modern British menu, and we love the pressed Wenlock Edge ham hock and parsley terrine with red cabbage and apple puree; the fillet of Welsh Black beef cooked in a shallot marinade served with potato fondant, buttered spinach and a poached egg; and the mocha panna cotta.
