We have been in here a few times now and the food is always lovely. Reasonably priced and a good portion size.

This is a lovely old pub in the middle of Ludlow.Period premises with great curbside appeal. This does reduce a little upon entering premises. A building like this does build up expectations for food but it is mid grade mid range pub food. Efficient service....More

on street parking if you can find it is free on Sundays. If you can't find a space head for the co-op car park (use Sat Nav). Then it's a five minute walk.

Built in the 14th century with history dating back as far as 1365, our popular venue received a complete makeover in 2012 but still retains much of its historic feel. We aim to deliver a relaxed atmosphere, flavour packed food, and truly enjoyable drinks. We open early and close late, from coffee to cocktails our bar has something for everyone; an exciting and accessible wine list, a full range of premium spirits, world renowned Lavazza coffee, and a whole lot more. We don’t have to travel far to find great ingredients, and our kitchen uses the best local suppliers to produce our menu. From our stonebaked pizzas to our ‘pub favourites’, and our famous Sunday roast, you’ll find our food is packed full of flavour thanks to the skills of the kitchen crew.
