|I have to say when i first started going there a few years ago it was great ! Lovely staff great atmosphere etc etc.. But over the last year it has dropped dramatically !! The owners had started revealing the problems and relationship issues publicly in the bar area, forcing customers out the bar so the can argue, i myself was even told to the face by the youngest landlord that he didnt like me because his husband was aparently flirting with with me when he has done this with a number of customers Just out of friendliness as nothing physical ever came from it(not very inviting to hear that as a customer!). The bar staff have mentioned also that the place has gone 'down' and they arnt as happy as they used to be, there have also been several mentiones of the landlords beak up's. Now when i go there you hardly even notice a gay crowd, fights majority of the nights by rough locals and even the police show up on a regular basis. None of the regulars go anymore as they were barred from there or chose not to come back because during having argents with some new faces who were overly drunk the landlord defended the new comers. There is word that they are selling alcohol that the brury is unaware of, plus (mentiond by bar staff) the even of pride that took place last year, the funds raised for it the owners only donated a small percentage to charity and kept majority for themselfs after advertising that funds were going to a good cause !! Clearly the pub has a lot to make up for over how it has been steating poeple over the last year, its no longer an attitude free pub, its mor like something youd expect of shameless all in all im discusted at the place and how its making the gay world look.. Sort it out ! |

|This pub is amazing. The staff and customers are always welcoming, and I think they have done well to make this one of the busiest pubs in Telford. It may be attitude free and essentially a gay and Lesbian pub, but I go with my wife most weekends and sometimes to the quiz on Tuesday nights (where else can you get a quiz, with prizes, a free raffle and a free supper at half time for just a quid!!). I have never had an issue with the beer and they have a great choice as well. I believe their Sunday Lunches are to die for as well, we are checking it out this Sunday, I will post here when we have tried it. I would fully reccommend this pub to anyone, unless of course you are not attitude free yourself.|

|Well this place may be an "attitude free" place but it is also a "quality beer free" venue. Had to suffer "Lazy Landlord Bitter" last night (John Smiths Keg!) I'm sure even the "attitude friendly" clientel would appreciate a quality cask ale offering regardless of their sexuality! Nice enough place with no trouble on a Saturday night for "Straight", "Gay", "Bi", whatever alike...but sort out the beer!|

|I like The Three Furnaces! I went there nearly every week late last year, watching my friend Dave perform in 'Furnace Factor' - similar to the X Factor, and where the singer who won, won £500, and someone who voted for him to GET to the final would win a free meal for themselves and their family, and limo service to the pub, on the final night - and I really enjoyed it! It's quite far out, but I caught the 44 from Hadley to Madeley there, and walked up, and I liked it! The staff are really friendly, and the wine's quite cheap, at about £3.95. They even sell cake, but that's quite ridiculously priced at around £2 a slice. It's quite small inside, but it's nice, and the only flaw I can see is that it can be quite cold. Linda Limelight, the local transvestite's, brilliant too, and they always have good events nights, full of music like Abba, for the gay crowd. Gay pubs are always the best! The music's so cheesy, you can't help but do a jig. I love The Three Furnaces. They do even sell food, and you can get a Sunday dinner for around £5, but I've not yet tried it. Visit!|
