Had panini, toasted tea cake, mini stone soup and tomato soup. All really tasty. Earl grey tea x 2, latte and tea, all hot and served quickly. Bill just shy of £30. Very clean. Cake also looked good.

I personally found the food and hot drinks overpriced, staff seemed over worked with little to no enthusiasm. A little cramped with chairs from customers behind me bumping me as they left. not a great experience , maybe better to visit on a quiet morning.

Thanks for your review and sorry you didn't have a great experience. When we are busy it can be a little tight on space.

With staff absences and due to the unpredictability of visitor numbers it can be difficult to get the right balance all the time and enthusiasm can be affected when short staffed.

Apologies again

We hope you will maybe return sometime

Many thanks Darbys 1779

Lovely little cafe that overlooks the Ironbridge. Staff were very welcoming and attentive. The carrot cake was ace.

There were few places open on a Monday morning, and few people about, but Darby's was open and serving. The breakfast was excellent and the service quick and friendly. Nice atmosphere too. If I went back to Ironbridge I would definitely eat there again.
