Good Hotel Guide Review
‘It never fails to impress,’ say regular readers this year, about this ‘excellent-value’ restaurant-with-rooms. Besides the ‘friendly, efficient’ staff and ‘comfortable’ bedrooms, ‘the food is very good’. No wonder: part of the Oakly Park Estate of vast farmland, the 18th-century farmhouse neighbours the Ludlow Food Centre, that larger-than-life larder of local produce, treats and delicacies. Popular locally, the smart restaurant uses much seasonal produce and estate-reared meat. ‘We had scallops with risotto; lamb; individual beef Wellingtons; a generous portion of apple crumble – all excellent.’ A bar menu of light bites and comfort food satisfies diners looking for more informal meals. Stay in a modern bedroom in one of the converted barns around the neat courtyard – each is thoughtfully stocked with leaf teas, cafetière coffee, bathrobes and slippers. ‘Our first-floor room wasn’t the most spacious, but was perfectly adequate. Plenty of storage space in the big bathroom; a powerful shower over the bath.’ In the morning, breakfast awaits in sister café, the Ludlow Kitchen, steps away: freshly baked breads, award-winning preserves, custom-blended coffee.
