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!

    This is a beautiful place to eat with great atmosphere, wonderful views of the river, accommodating, well presented attentive staff and exquisitely prepared food. I ate two meals there and the choice of food was perfect and both meals were utterly delicious and made with high quality ingredients. I really could fault anything. Would highly recommend. It was busy on both midweek nights I ate there and I think that says a lot about how good it is.

    A beautiful setting with spectacular views over the river. Ducks below us and swallows above. Very nice atmosphere in this traditional pub and although the England game was on in the room next door, there wasn’t much noise at all. Great staff, delicious food and extremely good value.

    Finding the Charlton Arms in the Michelin Guide, we expected good things but were underwhelmed at what was offered. I wanted a pre dinner drink but was rushed through to a table in a large dining room which had great views but lacked ambiance, and told that they would bring a drink to the table. I was then left for ten minutes without being asked what I wanted… the menu was different to the one posted at the door on the same day, and the vegetarian choices were limited. My dish was only just okay and excessively creamy. The staff were all lovely, and very friendly but lacked service finesse.
