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. 

Restaurant 1840 takeover

A Message From Jelly the Chef

After four years of cheffing at Restaurant 1840, working closely with Barry and Becky, I've been given a fantastic opportunity to take over this incredible venue. Our new ethos at restaurant 1840 is great food, great intentions. We'll be pushing forward with British only meat and sustainable fish caught in British waters. We want to pioneer change in the industry, including both pleasure and betterment. 

Restaurant 1840 is a renovation of this former Methodist church. It began in 2016 following 10 years of neglect. The lovingly restored building has maintained its heritage: all tables have been converted from original church pews; stained glass has been specially designed to replicate the originals, and even the pulpit has been restored in the reception area.

You will be welcomed from the minute you arrive, and we take pride in ensuring that your evening is both special and unique. 

Our menus can be viewed on our menu page. These will change occasionally, along with our regularly updated 1840's specials board.

Fully Licensed.
