Lovely evening. Great food and good beer/wine. Friendly atmosphere and dog friendly. There are many good pubs in Ludlow and this is one of the best. Will definitely visit again.

Lovely fresh food. Generous servings - we chose starters - more than enough for a satisfying lunch. Friendly, helpful service.

We visited here on our holiday for lunch, and it was nice. The chips were lovely, but unfortunately the burger was just a bog standard frozen burger. Such a shame as I was expecting a hand made one. Pub itself was lovely, just a shame...More

We offer a light local and homemade menu in an informal pub surrounding or courtyard garden. We aim to utilise the great local to Ludlow market and ethos to bring venison pies made in our kitchen to local desserts from the market. The menu changes frequently to reflect availability and seasons. So if a light local lunch full of Shropshire flavour is what you seek then we hope we can accommodate.
