Ludlow combines the best of the past and the present. As well as being steeped in history it is has a deserved reputation as foodie destination. Here are some of our personal recommendations:

Dog Hangs Well

By day the headquarters of Son Of Saxon publishers, at night the Dog Hangs Well transforms into an intimate a parlour pub that only serves 3 drinks – beer, cider or soda water. If you’re looking for a Mojito you’d better look elsewhere. It is only open when the light is on outside – Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 6-9pm.

Buttercross Museum

This tiny museum in above the Buttercross is full of interesting local artefacts and information, as well as affording a great view down Broad Street, one of Ludlows’ most famous streets.


Blue Boar

Blue Boar, 52 Mill Street

A great dog friendly pub on Mill Street, just down from the Market Square. Good value lunches and great atmosphere. Good selection of beers including Hobsons and Wye Valley. Regular events are held in the quirky Sitting Room above the pub.


Green Cafe

Green Cafe, Mill on the Green

Probably the best place in town to appreciate Ludlow Castle in all its glory as it towers over you from its perch above Dinham Bridge. The Green Cafe is situated on the banks of the river Teme overlooking the weir, and serves fantastic breakfast and lunches from 10 – 4.30 except Mondays. The cafe was recently taken over by CSONS as an addition to their well regarded Shrewsbury restaurant. Their motto is ‘locally sourced, globally inspired’.
