“Hurrah! Ludlow finally has a pub worth eating in!” – a new gastroboozer-with-rooms from Cedric Bosi (sibling to Claude of Hibiscus and soon-to-be Bibendum fame). The cooking “goes from strength to strength”, and a “superb location overlooking the river” lends it “far and away the best view” in town.

Very Good

A gastroboozer-with-rooms with a “fab setting right on the river”, where the food is “now excellent after new owners (Cedric Bosi, brother of Claude of Hibiscus fame) took it over”; reports are still few, but fans say it’s “well worth a visit”.
