I went here after hearing what a food mecca Ludlow was. It was a crisp cold evening with snow still on the ground and wandering through the door to such a warm welcome was just lovely. The creaky stairs and uneven floor in the upstairs bar area were full of understated charm and a delightful prequel to the dinner that was to come. Before I get on the the food I must mention the service. Without exception I found the staff a delight; well, perhaps I don't like being called madam quite so often but, hey, it's politeness and possibly shows more of my personality that I interpreted it as meaning I was ancient!! Joking aside though the staff really are a credit to the place. They judged us perfectly and the service was attentive enought without being overbearing. The food was some of the best I have had. If I could offer any criticism then to me it was under seasoned, but then that is my personal preference and I doubt many others would agree. In any event that is a minor quibble about what was a very fine meal indeed. yes, it's not cheap - and I admit I came away wondering whether a meal for two was worth circa £250 even when it was very good indeed. But then I realised that, yes, although it is a significant amount of money and I realise I am lucky to have been able to enjoy the 'experience' given the current climate but for those of you lucky enough to spend that amount on a meal then that is what you pay for - its not just the food, which was super, but the 'experience' too. It's an occasion place and it was certainly a memorable occasion for me!
