Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First visit today and we will most definitely be back. Everything about our experience was superb. The friendly, attentive staff to the freshest, tastiest fish/shellfish. We opted to sit at the bar in the window as the seating was a bit cosy for our liking...and will request the same seats when we return. We pre booked (I would say this is a necessity due to the small seating capacity) I also requested alcohol free larger which isn't usually stocked however they got some in especially for our visit which was hugely appreciated. We had the sharing crab platter which was plentiful for the two of us. It was delightful! If you are a sea food lover as are we this lovely little place is a must try! You can also purchase fresh seafood to take away however I get the impression they sell out quite quickly due to the popularity and quality of the food.More

We had a wonderful fish platter at The Fish House today. In fact I can’t remember eating a better one in the uk. My husband was rather surprised by the small seating area when we arrived but when our fish platter was served by one...of the friendly staff, his concerns disappeared!More

Visited with my husband on a recent trip to Ludlow. Had checked out restaurants and cafes and was hoping we’d be lucky to get a table here. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and hope to visit again in the near future. Many thanks.

How lucky Ludlow is to have such a wonderful fish shop. We were super lucky to get a seat in the small dining area and had smoked salmon and crab pate with crusty bread. The fish was so fresh. The team that run the fish...house are really knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. We returned the following day to collect a fish platter take away. If you go to Ludlow and you like fish, the Fish House is an absolute must. It’s only open for lunch, so get there early not to be disappointed.More

Rather than have a meal at the Fish House, we bought one of their fish platters. The cost was about £30 (ours cost £28) and comprised dresses crab, prawns (various sizes) smoked/hot smoked salmon and smoked mackerel with a samphire garnish. All the fish was...cooked and the platter made two meal for two over two days. Excellent value and the platters are prepared to order by very knowledgeable fishmongers. A great take way!More

Popped in as was hoping to have lunch, but they aren't doing at the moment, hoping to begin soon. The array of fish was very good and looked so fresh, there was no smell of strong fish which is excellent. I bought 2 dressed crab...for £12 to bring home, haven't opened yet but looks to be plenty of white meat.More

The place to buy fresh fish in Ludlow. The staff are knowledgeable and offer great service. Be patient with the queue - it’s worth the wait.

We were delighted when we picked up our smoked fish and crab platters. We have never had such a fantastic selection, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Even the samphire was the best we have eaten. We rang Rachel first thing in the morning to order...them (£25 each) and they were ready to pick up an hour later - the food highlight of our holiday.More

We treated ourselves to the £60 fish platter takeout on a weekend trip to Ludlow. It was excellent, high quality fish and sea food. We had three lunches from it, and would buy again.

We'd read about this place prior to visiting Ludlow for the weekend so had planned to have lunch there. However, when we arrived we were told as they had such small premises they could not allow people to dine in and meet social distancing guidelines....However, we were offered a lovely cold seafood platter for two at £25, which included fresh prawns, a dressed crab, tuna, and other smoked fishes. We were staying at local cabin in the Shropshire hills just outside of Ludlow, so took our lunch back there and thoroughly enjoyed eating in outside in the sunshine. It tasted so fresh and delicious. If we return we'll be sure to visit this place again.More

Very helpful staff and a great selection of fish. We ordered some shellfish to take home with us and it was really nice. I can only comment on the actual fish shop. We didn't use the restaurant.
