“Beautiful place, friendly staff, fantastic food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We stayed at the charlton arms on the 24 of feb 2014. We booked the suite with a jacuzzi/double spa bath and a private hot tub on our own balcony. The room was absolutely beautiful, very cosy but still stylish and modern. The dining area was gorgeous with a very relaxed vibe. The food was delicious, couldn't fault it at all. We loved how the place looked like a 4 star hotel but then entering the bar area it had "your local pub atmosphere" very relaxed and inviting. Staff were very attentive and it was clear they all enjoyed working there and wanted to do there very best to make your stay as lovely as possible. All in all an absolutely brilliant night away. Well worth every penny! Already planning on going back.. Thank you so much to the staff for making our stay as good as it was! We will be seeing you all again very soon! Chris&Tash :)

We stayed at the Charlton Arms on 14th February 2014 for one night. We had the large 4 poster bedroom with huge jacuzzi bath! Apparently this is due for redecorating so should be even nicer this year. There was a great patio terrace leading off the bedroom with a hot tub which will be great in the summer. We had a lovely drink in the cosy bar and then a fabulous meal in the restaurant. The food was excellent. The breakfast was equally as good with very tasty sausages and bacon. We will definitely be back! Thanks.

Room Tip: Choose the one overlooking the river with private terrace. Not cheap but will be worth it when redec...

My partner and I Live in ludlow and were excited to hear about the new management and revamp of the charlton arms!

Set in a beautiful location, the new menu fully lives up to expectations. We ate on a Sunday evening, my partner had Cumberland sausages with mash potato and I had the roasted chicken followed by a chocolate and caramel tart to share. Everything was delicious.

From start to finish the service was excellent, food fantastic and we look forward to making this out favorate place to eat in Ludlow.

Thankyou Charlton Arms

We called in on the Re-opening night to find a warm and friendly spacious pub. Great staff and an excellent menu!! If you just want a relaxing drink with a muddy dog and some yummy bar nibbles this is certainly the place to be. Superb, our new local...........

Well done Cedric, Amy and the Team. Welcome back to the area after successful ventures in London............we are very lucky to have you here in Ludlow!!

We are regulars at the CA and for us it's ideal and only a short walk up to town.
At our last stay we were informed - a little abruptly, that a refurbishment was due, it would be under new management - and the prices will go up and this was at checking in!
Generally, we find the staff warm and welcoming but not necessarily this particular staff member, at this particular time. However, we still booked to stay again for our regular annual. stay but will see how the changes affect the rooms and the facilities.
The setting is great next to the river Teme on the old bridge and the bar has a good choice of beers and ciders etc.
The rooms are comfortable not luxurious but with good bathrooms in some and although a little expensive, even before the aforementioned price hike, we still think it's been worth it over the time we've been going.
Breakfasts are good and overall we like it, but will the changes be for the better....? WTS...
