Overlooking the historic Ludford bridge, just a few minutes walk from the town centre of Ludlow, the Charlton Arms is the epitome of a charming Pub. The kitchen, headed up by Krizstian Balogh, focusses on great British food and features a wealth of local produce. Fantastic pub classics feature strongly alongside accomplished dishes. Real Ales and local Ciders sit proudly amidst the eclectic selection of wines to suit every budget. To make the most of a visit to the Charlton, there are nine comfortable en-suite bedrooms. The breakfast menu, from Clun Valley Eggs, locally cured bacon and Ludlows' famed sausages to the finest smoked salmon has something for everyone. Independently run by Cedric and Amy Bosi, a warm welcome is guaranteed. Children are welcome and are provided with a children's menu. For the dog lovers amongst you, well behaved dogs are allowed in, and with the beautiful walks around Ludlow and its Whitcliffe Common, muddy boots are always a feature of the pub!

    My Wife had a limited choice of the menu due to the fish and game content. I on the other hand was very happy with the menu. The Fish Soup was outstanding. All the dishes we had were super. We would check the menu before dining again. We woul not hesitate to dine again if my wife was happy.

    On a sunny evening sitting on the deck of the Charlton Arms, overlooking the river and its bridge, it is hard to imagine a more delightful place anywhere in Shropshire. Service was professional and enthusiastic but one mark removed due to an incorrect order being placed with the kitchen, followed by a delay in getting the right dishes. We enjoyed our evening.

    Undoubtedly, the best restaurant we visited in Ludlow. Top quality food and execution, at very decent prices, much lower than some other fancy restaurants in town. Every dish exhibited exciting flavours.
