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!

    We went for Sunday lunch which is something we never do as our own Sunday dinner is so good but when we looked at the menu we thought we would try it while we away. The food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly. Also for the quality of food and service we found it very reasonably priced. Can’t wait to go back.

    I had the bacon cheeseburger which was very nice but unfortunately the bottom bun became very soggy quite quickly which make it hard to hold towards the end. The wife dessert came out on just a plain plate where my dessert came in a fancy bowl but really enjoyed the meal.

    Arrived 30 minutes early and were taken to our table immediately. Tanqueray Zero available - splendid! The menu looked a bit limited but as we came for the Sunday roast which was excellent we had no complaints. Service impeccable until it got busy at about 1.30 then just a tad slow. Overall we were very happy with our meal and would go again.

    The food and service were very good. Annoyingly the dessert we wanted wasn’t available but these things happen. Only slight negative was that the noise level seemed very high. At points I couldnt hear what my partner was saying. But would definitely recommend to others.
