"I did not realise just what a treat I had in store for me with the chowder. When it came it was a steaming bowl of creamy, thick soup. It was absolutely delicious. One of the most enjoyable dishes I have ever tasted. From the first mouthful I knew I would have to give four stars if only for my starter. In fact, I wish they could do it as a main course, as I guarantee it would quickly become a best seller."

"Ambience, roaring log fire, friendly staff, and food one can actually taste!"

"So far we have only had the poor to average chips with everything and run of the mill pub lunches. Today, we really hit the jackpot since leaving Somerset."

"I had crab linguini with chili, ginger and coriander; followed by poached pear in wine with ginger curd mille feuille. Even my very picky husband enjoyed his huge pot of tasty macaroni cheese with a whole crusty baguette and butter. A Cafetiere of perfectly brewed coffee finished off a superbly enjoyable lunch.

The King and Thai, Broseley, nr Ironbridge - TF12 5DL

Excellent Thai Food! Reviewed by eatthemidlands.co.uk

"During our meal we had a visit from Suree who is not only the owner but also head chef and prides herself on the fresh local produce and quality of food that she uses and is keen to provide customers with a meal to remember, ensuring customers will come back time and time again for that truly Thai experience. Thai cuisine is very healthy (as their 'Healthy Eating Award' confirms) as all the food is freshly prepared using only the freshest vegetables and quality cuts of local meat and with the use of fresh herbs and spices also means that the flavours are infused into the meats, giving greater depths of flavour."
