“The views from the window tables overlooking the river are stunning” at Cedric (brother of Claude) Bosi and his wife Amy’s well-established inn, on the Ludford Bridge (and with outdoor seating). Its gastrofare provides “a high standard of preparation and presentation” and “is reasonably priced, as are the wines”. “Well-kept real ales” too.

“Ludlow is not quite the foodie destination it used to be but you can eat well at this riverside inn”, owned and run by Cedric Bosi (Claude's brother) and his wife Amy. “Terrific views of the River Teme” (especially from the rooftop conservatory) and a “beautifully designed” interior combine with food that's “quite French, nothing at the gastronomic cutting edge, but all very well done. Oh...and the beer's local and good”.

Cedric (brother of Claude, who used to run Hibiscus nearby) & Amy Bosi’s old stone pub with rooms profits from “superb views over the River Teme”. “The food has its off days, but is generally reliable, and often very good”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
