Good Hotel Guide Review
In a town that hosts a clutch of food and drink festivals every year, this ‘excellent-value’ restaurant-with-rooms is but a stroll from the popular Ludlow Food Centre. ‘We’ve stayed a dozen times in as many years. The staff are efficient and friendly, and the food is very good,’ says a regular Guide correspondent. The 18th-century farmhouse stands on the Earl of Plymouth’s acres-wide estate, which supplies chef Peter Mills with prime ingredients for his modern dishes. ‘We ate in all three nights we stayed. The menu seems to have shrunk, but salmon, fillet steak and wonderfully tender pork were highlights.’ Contemporary bedrooms, including a family suite, are in the converted stables set around a courtyard. Some are jollier than others, but all are ‘big, quiet and comfortable’, and supplied with cafetière coffee and leaf tea. ‘We never bother booking a superior room – there isn’t any need.’ Breakfast in the sister café brings Gloucester Old Spot bacon and sausages, home-made bread and jams. You’re in a good position for the Shropshire hills area of outstanding natural beauty: tranquil villages, ancient woodland and historic inns are within reach. (Peter Anderson)
