Great food, exceptionally served in unique settings. That is what is at the heart of Restaurant 1840.



Set in one of Telford's oldest buildings, this 19th century former Methodist Church is unique. Locally sourced produce is freshly prepared by the team daily, and Jelly and the team would love for you to join them for a memorable eating experience.

    Absolutely beautiful place, staff were fantastic. The young man who waited on our table was so polite and friendly and truly a credit to your team. Food was truly delicious. We had starters and a main, they were delivered to the table in a good amount of time. The main was melt in the mouth, the meat was cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back. Loved the little details from the original building and keeping a nod to the churches history so important. Thank you for a fantastic night.

    Been here a few times. Food was very good and for the portion sizes were more than enough. Good choice of drinks and reasonably priced. Service was very good, they had some new staff being trained but it didn't take away from what was a nice evening and we've all had a first day at a job.

    From being greeted on walking into the restaurant to the overall customer service all rated excellent, despite the restaurant being nearly full, food was served in a more than reasonable time frame and the waiter was very attentive. Excellent experience, that I would definitely recommend.

    Some of the best front-of-house staff I’ve seen in the UK. A nice blend of formality and humour between them. Food was, likewise, excellent with a good amount of variety packed into the menu. I will be recommending this to anyone.

    Sadly lacked finesse particularly on the food service My starter was so salty I should have sent it back. They still charged me for it Waiters untrained and rushed us all evening Main course was very good however and saved the evening So sad really this restaurant could be great. Now it’s middle of the road

    Imaginative menu and really well cooked and presented food. It felt like the chef took pride in what was being served. The time between courses was judged correctly, not too fast that we felt rushed, but not too slow that we felt that we'd been forgotten about.

    Beautiful building, very cool in the heat which was most welcoming. Chairs are a tad low for the tables our waiter took our order, he was exceptionally quietly spoken but very polite, perhaps lingered just that two seconds too long to make it a little awkward. The amuse bouche was tasty whilst waiting for our starters. My partner chose the short rib croquettes for his starter which were too small and tasted mainly of fried oil, not good. I had the pate which was average and came with a ridiculously small cube of butter and not enough bread. It was tasty but nothing special. I had the belly pork which I really enjoyed, it was tender with a lovely rind of crackling. OH had the lamb rump which was tender, juicy and sweet. All came with dauphinoise potatoes and carrots and sugar snaps. The potato kind of got a bit lost in the dauphinoise as they were wafer thin slices, needed to be a little thicker. Puddings were very good. I had the baked Alaska which looked lovely and tasted pretty good. OH had the white chocolate and strawberry cheesecake which was scrumptious. It was good, but for £100, it should have been really memorable. I so want to be able to scream, yes, go there but sadly I can't. We will go again when their next menu comes out with the hope it will be really good.
