There are a wide variety of restaurants in Ludlow, but Clive Arms stands out if you want traditional British food that makes the most of Ludlow’s local ingredients.

Our food is inspired by the seasonal produce of Shropshire and our surrounding counties. Many of our ingredients are handmade at Ludlow Farmshop. Our meat is reared in the fields surrounding us on the Earl of Plymouth’s Oakly Park Estate and is prepared by the award winning butchers at Ludlow Farmshop

Please note, we do add a 12.5% discretionary service charge onto the bill for groups of six or more.

    Frankly the food was a surprise. Was expecting average but got an above average, really nice pub meal. If you don’t like your burgers cremated and cooked just right then this is your place. Music for a bit of atmosphere but not so loud you can’t hear each other, but loud enough that you don’t feel you are talking to the people across from you or the whole room. Definitely worth trying!

    We regularly enjoy Sunday lunch at the Clive Arms. This week the food was even better than usual but the service was worse. We waited quite a while for our food order to be taken. And I was cheated out of my cauliflower cheese! A small bowl was brought to the table for the other two people who had ordered the roast lunch, and when I asked whether I would be getting any, the server shrugged and said he'd check on it. It never arrived.
