Hotel directly at the bottom of the Ironbridge, on the main High Street
The Tontine Hotel is a Grade II* listed building.
I think it may also be a Free House (might have a pub on the ground floor).
It is An Enterprise Inn.
Circa 1800 red brick hotel with hipped plain tile roof and eaves band. Three storeys. Five bays to south elevation, flat-headed sashes with glazing bars. Central panelled double doors under arched fanlight wooden doorcase containing sidelights and open pediment on pilasters. Three bay east elevation, centre breaks forward with pediment with large circular window in tympanum. Flat-headed sashes to second floor, round-headed to first floor with nice Venetian window in shallow arched recess to centre. Flat-headed triple-light window to ground floor centre, shallow semi-circular headed recess each side.
Above the Tontine Hotel is the Church of St Luke. It is a Grade II listed building dating from 1836.

Wide nave with pairs of lancets with lozenge-shaped pane iron-frame windows and gabled buttresses between. Gabled apse with tripartite lancets.
