Visited for a birthday treat- stayed in Tempest Room- lovely view of Ludlow from the balcony. Room was great, clean and comfortable. We had one evening here which was excellent, great service and choice. Breakfast choice was great, however the only waitress was very busy and quite stressed - we ordered salmon and scrambled egg with toast and was told...

I would love to come back in the summer and enjoy a glass of wine on the patio. The food was delicious , service was fantastic and the...

What stood out for us was the well-balanced menu; the usual pub staples but with some interesting additions. My wife started with "Popcorn Clams" followed by Chicken Breast with turnips etc, while I had a "Pig's Head Scotch Egg" and "Roasted Ox Cheek". Our food was delicious, well presented and served. It was a pleasing experience and I would highly...

We stayed here and had a super time. Clean and comfortable. Good selection for breakfast and the location is ideal. It is a little walk to the centre but only took a few minutes. Also lovely views over the river from our room. Would happily stay again.

We only live half an hour drive from Ludlow but so happy we decided to go for an away from it all overnight stay here. Room was lovely, very comfortable with a river view, staff were very polite and professional, the absolute star of this place though has to be the menu and the quality of the food. My husband...

A friend and I had lunch here and we would both recommend it. The place was packed as there was a funeral wake taking place, this meant we had to eat in the lounge bar rather than the restaurant but this was no problem, it's a nice area with well spaced tables. We had worried that, with so many people...

This pub is set next to the river, a mere 10 minute walk into beautiful Ludlow. The staff are welcoming and the rooms extremely comfortable - the restaurant overlooks the river and the food is of an acceptable standard - breakfast was particularly good. My only negative was that the bar and Lounge bar were not particularly cosy or welcoming,...

We had a lunch here on a lovely day, sitting in the restaurant overlooking the river, quite stunning. The menu was quite good (not much of you are a vegetarian, but we are not so that didn't matter). The service was very good, a nice warm welcome and very attentive. The food was excellent, well cooked, nicely presented and very...
