Iron Horse used to make great bikes.
They went bankrupt in 2009. It looks like the current owner of the name is sticking it on cheap tat.

Absolute scrap, I'd not even trust the seat clamp. You very much get what you pay for with bikes with suspension, especially with a rear shock :{

Even among the junk that normally gets sold by Toys R Us etc. this is something else. Extraordinarily heavy and at least twice the price it should be.

Buy literally anything else. Folk voting hot should be ashamed.

For a new bike at this price; go to Decathlon and buy a Rock Rider.

As a rough guide, if you're looking for a cheap mountain bike it should:
1. Ideally have no suspension and DEFINITELY have no rear suspension.
2. Probably have an aluminium frame (check the total weight - it should be around 15kg or less for a cheap mountain bike).
3. Have gears and brakes made by a recognised firm.
4. It shouldn't have disc brakes at this sort of price.
Some makers of cheap, bicycle shaped objects know this and have started making cheap, hardtail frames from aluminium and putting a set of branded gears on it, but at least those guidelines mean you're less likely to end up with a cheap piece of junk.

The simplest way to achieve this is to try looking in some bike shops rather than a supermarket or a toy shop. See if there's a local bike shop or a branch of Evans Cycles, Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op, etc. near you.
If you're looking online try bike retailers like Evans Cycles, Wiggle, Chain Reaction Cycles, etc.

Alternatively, if you're willing to go secondhand (and bikes generally don't cost less than about £200 new) then see if there's a charity in your area that refurbishes secondhand bikes and sells them on; I got my son's bike for £45 that way and I paid them £20 to fix the gears on a secondhand Trek I bought on Ebay for £60. Between us we now have about £700 worth of bikes for less than the price of the monstrosity in the OP.

The Decathlon bike above was what I was going to say, if new is an absolute must.

Me? I'd buy secondhand, you can pick up a much better bike than even the Decathlon for about £100. Budget £30-50 for servicing/parts and you're golden.
