Food: 10/10 If a Michelin inspector ever discovers that Ludlow isn't the the only town in Shropshire to serve food, I'm certain that they would award one to the lion and pheasant. I loved the fact that the menu was very much based around fine cuts of meat, it was truly faultless and far, far better than the surrounding restaurants I've eaten at in town.
Service: the service was wonderful, again 10/10. No one gets it right all the time as I asked for a bit of time between my starter and main to finish our wine, finished starter and the main was out 5 minutes later. I explained this to Terri, our waitress, (not only very professional but lovely from start to finish) and she not only apologised, but explained why and offered us a complimentary cocktail. A good place becomes an excellent place not by getting erything right all the time but understanding how to put things right that go wrong. The manager (his name escapes me) was great also, very attentive and friendly and I took him up on his suggestion for the starter, something I don't regret!
Atmosphere: lovely atmosphere, romantic, not pretentious, not stuffy. Asked to be moved from a table that felt a bit draughty, again, tis was no issue at all.
Value: a round of drinks, two large glasses and two medium glasses of wine, starters, mains, dessert, side dishes, dessert wine and two cocktails for £108. Bear in mind this food was excellent.
Overall a 10/10 night, the staff were fantastic, the food was faultless and I was more than happy to pay the bill I was presented with. My only regret is that I didn't have any cash on me to tip, apologies guys. I will definitely be coming back for my next special occasion.
