Came here for my wife's birthday after reading a review in the Shropshire Star and it certainly lived up to my expectations. The food was fresh and full of flavour without the usual foam nonsense that you find in many restaurants these days. We started with the Crab Gateaux and cheese flan which were both excellent, this was followed by... More

We were recommended the French Pantry by the owner of the self catering cottage that we stayed in and we were not disappointed. It's a very cosy little place (only 8 tables) with a great atmosphere and friendly waiting staff. The food is absolutely delicious and they have a good, reasonably priced wine list. We liked it so much that... More

Three adults Saturday evening. Great atmosphere lovely staff 5 out of 6 courses excellent. The Duck was poor but the measure of a well run restaurant is how they handle the complaint (nobody gets it right every time) and they did it superbly. Well done to all,highly recommended

The menu was a wonderful read and sounded very French, unfortunately the food didn't match the excitement of the menu. Very ordinary and some of it like the sautee potatoes with my confit duck, inedible. Poor quality and value for money, including the wine list, when compared to many of the other wonderful eating establishments in Ludlow. The whole place... More

One of our favorites, never disappointed us and we've been coming for 4 years. Great meal last weekend again, love the new summer things on the menu, asparagus and sweetbreads to start and confit duck (our usual) for mains. Here's to our next visit!

We discovered the French Pantry a year ago and really enjoyed our meal and the ambience. We hadn't booked but were found a table in the back room. The food was memorable but what stuck in our minds was how pleasant and friendly the waiter was. When we finished our meal, other diners were asking us what we had had... More

Four of us went here for a meal last evening. We chose the £21 for two courses. I had the duck leg confit and my friends chose the pork. We all agreed our meals were excellent- nicely presented, expertly cooked and were something quite different from anything we would have cooked for ourselves. The pork was in a fruity sauce... More
