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!

    Super location with great views on the edge of Ludlow overlooking the river. Good gluten-free choice. Crab salad was outstanding. Service for dessert could have been a little quicker.

    Very nice gastropub on the river in Ludlow. Good service and food quality but I wasn’t blown away as I had thought I would be from reading other reviews. Would have to have another experience to validate, but it’s a nice place and definitely worth a try

    Pleasant restaurant overlooking the river. Attentive service without being too much. Excellent menu to choose from. The lamb was superb. Extensive wine list to suit all pockets. Deserves its reputation as a Gastropub, but also functions well as a pub away from the restaurant area.

    This was my first visit to The Charlton Arms and I’m sure it won’t be the last! Lovely ambience (the stylish dining room has a glorious view of the river), a warm welcome, delicious food, good well-priced wine list. We took a friend with us and all liked it a lot.

    We had a table with lovely views over the river. We were rather disappointed with the limited selection available on the menu, but it was a Sunday.

    They were very busy with two large parties ahead of us so it took a while for the food to arrive. However the drinks service was swift and our main dishes arrived 45 minutes after our arrival. The food was delicious. Their Sunday roasts always are good, my asparagus tortellini with wild garlic pesto and Parmesan was outstanding and seasonal.
