Looking for somewhere to eat, we found The Marches, just reopened after a refurbishment. What a delight. Although they have freshly made pizzas we decided to try something else (as we had one gluten free and they could not proved a GF pizza, they say they will consider this option) We decided on burger and they were lovely. They proved one without the bun for the GF but gave all the sauce in small pots. Most other places miss these of the GF burgers. The buns were not too big so did not overwhelm the burgers.

The staff were a little over attentive, I think these was because it was a few days after reopening. We will certainly revisit in the near future.

Hi there,
thanks for the review, we are working on how to offer a gluten free pizza, the problem lies in the oven more than the base as all other pizzas are cooked in there with flour avoiding cross contamination is difficult, but if there is a way we'll find it.
in the meantime we will continue to offer our other dishes as gluten free options as best we can.
hope to see you again soon!

We visited the Marches the night after it had opened. There is fierce competition amongst restaurants in Ludlow for both quality and service, The Marches engaged in extensive advertising before opening then spent most of the evening asking customers to "bear with us because we only opened yesterday". We ordered steak and after a lengthy wait it arrived, absolutely delicious BUT on a plate that was too small with chips that could be improved upon. In fairness to the owner he gave us a free drink to make up for the lengthy wait and was very keen to have feedback at the end of the meal.The owner and his staff were attentive but appeared inexperienced, however they have a winning combination of ambience and an enviable position on the town square, most importantly the quality of the steak was as good as any we have had in the town. We will return in a months time when hopefully teething problems will have been sorted out. Worth giving these people a chance because they want to get it right. Refreshing decor too !!

we're glad you enjoyed your steak, and we welcome all feedback gladly. we are experienced but with the best will in the world it will take time to bring an entirely new team together, i'm sure by your next visit it everything will be quicker and slicker, though there's no need to wait a month to pop on in, we'd be glad to see you even if it's just for a coffee one morning, or a swift half after work, after all we're here all day every day!

We went to the marches at lunch time on 07/05/2013. We weren’t sure if it was opened yet as we hadn’t seen it advertised anywhere. It turns out that today was there first day of opening. We were greeted by a lovely couple and then was told we can choose where we want to sit. We sat outside so we could enjoy the sun. Inside The Marches did look lovely though and very modern. Someone came to take our drinks order very quickly. We ordered Marches Glory Burger and Kypros Pizza. The food was brought to us very quickly. There was a slight mix up with the pizza but that was sorted out very quickly and it was their first day. The burger I had was delicious it was really big and you could tell it was proper meat. The pizza my friend had looked lovely too. Overall I think the Marches is excellent and will definitely go again. It is a great price and proper fresh cooked food. The staff were all very friendly and helpful aswell.
