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.

    The location is a bit random, the furniture and decor could certainly do with some improvement, however neither of these things are off putting, especially as the food is amazing. Every course was exceptionally and I can’t wait to go back.

    The food was beautiful but we sat down at 7.00pm and didn’t eat till nearly 8.00pm. The restaurant was not busy. Perhaps should have ordered some nibbles.

    Absolutely loved this restaurant. Our first visit but will be returning. A couple of minor things..would expect Peroni to be served in Peroni glasses. My preference is for any tip to go to the waiter( who was excellent by the way) not to a Charity which is not of my choosing.

    As usual the food could not be faulted, excellent. The wait for the food however was very slow and also the wait for drinks, particularly cocktails. The young waiting staff are lovely but so young that they just don’t have the experience and confidence of talking to people and no attention to customers made, eg not once were meals checked and they couldn’t be called to tables as they were based in the reception area. The venue was very cold (some diners kept their coats on) and needed some background music playing to make the restaurant more appealing.

    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.
