Just across the River Teme from Ludlow Castle, a short walk from Dinham Bridge, this small hotel incorporates a conservatory restaurant extension with garden views, and terrace for the summer. Reviews of Ian Pugh’s modernised but relatively traditional cooking are very positive: “consistently delivering a good quality dining experience, with an imaginatively presented, seasonal menu”.

Have you eaten at The Cliffe at Dinham?

Owner's description

Escape to the tranquil setting of The Cliffe at Dinham in Ludlow, alongside the river Teme, with superb views of Ludlow's historic Castle.

A combination of delicious, charming and a relaxed atmosphere will make your visit one to remember. The Cliffe at Dinham is the perfect for a relaxed lunch, an evening out or a longer stay in what Sir John Betjeman called "the loveliest town in England".

The Cliffe was built in the mid 19th Century as a gentlemen's residence for a local solicitor. It has been a hotel for many years and attracted a loyal clientele. After 12 successful years as Ludlow hoteliers, Paul & Barbara Brooks bought the hotel in April 2014, re-naming it The Cliffe at Dinham, a restaurant with rooms.

A major refurbishment has created two new dining rooms and lounge bar.  The original Victorian features of the building have been sympathetically combined with contemporary decoration.  


From The Cliffe at Dinham, you can walk to the town centre in a few minutes or take a little longer in a riverside stroll through Whitliffe Common.  All around lies the beautiful South Shropshire countryside with wonderful opportunities to explore.
