About the restaurant
A popular hotel, events and wedding venue, the Sweeney is the ideal location to celebrate a special occasion with loved ones, for a business meeting or for simply enjoying a night out with good food and drink.
Whatever the occasion, our team of Chefs relish the challenge of creating dishes that our diners will love every time they visit – whether you’re an old friend of The Sweeney or visiting us for the first time.

The Sweeney works continually with suppliers and local producers in Shropshire, Mid Wales and the surrounding areas to use only the best ingredients, always preferring to source locally where we can.

With a highly creative team we’re always designing new dishes for our ever-changing daily specials, creative event menus and special occasion feasts.

About the restaurant
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!

About the restaurant
Ye Olde Punchbowl Inn is certainly Ye Olde, even by the standards of British country pubs. The building has been there for at least 700 years – nobody knows exactly how long it has stood on what is now Ludlow Road – and has been a pub since 1740, serving the traveller, the public of Bridgnorth and all others who entered their doors. The menu now is classically British, with a full AGA carvery, a gastro menu and a full wine list that takes in the best of local ingredients. Reserve a table and gather up your whole crew for a meal that has stood the test of time.

Take a trip down Ludlow Road just outside Bridgnorth – south of Telford and east of Wolverhampton – and experience something that applies new methods to classically British cuisine and the famous AGA Carvery. Proud to be the official first innovator of the AGA carvery. – so book a table now.

We had a lovely carvery.Husband is Coeliac and he was very well catered for including yorkshire pudding, stuffing and gravy. I had the vegetarian option which was very nice. We thought it was very good value. We would recommend to anyone.

Excellent tasting menu - the combination of ingredients really worked and each dish was perfectly cooked and simply presented. The accompanying wines were very well matched with each dish - best wine pairing we have had with a tasting menu - and the overall explanation/introduction as the dishes and wines were served was just right, short and helpful. All the staff were very friendly but also professional. We envy people living in Ludlow having this quality of local restaurant!

About the restaurant
There are a wide variety of restaurants in Ludlow, but Clive Arms stands out if you want traditional British food that makes the most of Ludlow’s local ingredients.

Our food is inspired by the seasonal produce of Shropshire and our surrounding counties. Many of our ingredients are handmade at Ludlow Farmshop. Our meat is reared in the fields surrounding us on the Earl of Plymouth’s Oakly Park Estate and is prepared by the award winning butchers at Ludlow Farmshop

Please note, we do add a 12.5% discretionary service charge onto the bill for groups of six or more.

The music was a bit loud but the noise level from fellow guests was fine. Nice to go to a restaurant where the tables aren't completely squashed together. First meal out in our visit to England and a fantastic experience.

About the restaurant
Leonard Wilfred Davies, born 19 December 1906, started a butcher's dynasty now four generations old. His butchers typical cheeky sense of humour now lives on through his grandchildren along with his knowledge of butchery.

In 1997 Leonard’s grandson Richard opened The Station Inn, which quickly generated a great reputation for quality steak. With Richard’s son, Ben’s passion and expertise as Head Chef and Butcher, The Station’s dining experience is a true reflection of the families deep passion for serving amazing steak.

20 years on from opening The Station a major upgrade has taken place, which at its core aims to celebrate the families heritage and knowledge of meat. In order to identify your exact preferences the chefs help you choose the best cut of beef to cook for dinner. It makes for an unforgettable ‘butchery and dining’ experience.
