The Angel Ludlow is set in one of the towns most historic building near the top of Broad Street. Run by the same family who own the excellent Chichetti’s a few doors down, the Angel Ludlow serves fine wine, cheeses and Spanish tapas as well as champagne and cocktails. The building was once a coaching inn offering rooms and stabling for wealthy travellers. A plaque outside the restaurant proudly proclaims the journey to London was made in a record 27 hours! Of course now the journey to London can be done in nearly half that time. Nelson and his mistress Emma Hamilton stayed in the hotel after the victory at the battle of the Nile, and waved from the crowds from the beautiful round bay windows that overlook Broad Street.
Of course the reason people visit today is for the fantastic food and drink. Specialities include Patatas Bravas, Burrata, Albondigas and Iberico Pork Paella. They have an extensive wine list and a sommelier on hand to help you with the selection.

The Feathers Hotel Ludlow is one of the town’s most famous landmarks and is often quoted as being the most photographed hotel in the country. It was built in 1619 by Rees Jones, the attorney of Pembrokeshire and a member of the ‘Council of the Marches’. The Grade 1 listed Feathers Hotel is a stunning half-timbered Tudor building with ornate carvings and Jacobean furnishings. Recently re-opened after a major refurbishment the Feathers Hotel Ludlow remains one of the towns most iconic destinations.
The hotel contains a Tea Room where you can sit down for cakes, scones tea, coffee or champagne, as well the more formal Plume@Feathers restaurant that serves a menu fusing British and French cuisine with an emphasis on local produce.

Pizza Ten Ludlow is situated in Quality Square, and is the best Pizza restaurant in Ludlow in our humble opinion. They have 10 different artisan Pizzas (see what they did there?) as well as a variety of other mains for those not taken by the round italian icon such as venison tortellini. All Pizzas are 12″ and made on a homemade sourdough base.
A very popular spot so best to book we’ll in advance.

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 cafe was recently taken over by CSONS as an addition to their well regarded Shrewsbury restaurant. Their motto is ‘locally sourced, globally inspired’.
