Had dinner here I had roast veg cheese sandwich. Normal sliced bread no nice artisan bread as expected, wet veg not roasted. So the bread was soggy. Husband had fish & chips said he had nicer other places. Wouldn't recommend to others. Very disappointing.

As occasional visitors to Ludlow we rang in advance to book a table in one of our favourite pubs, The Church Inn. We weren't aware that it had been refurbished and remodelled to suit a younger clientele. This pub has been ruined. All of the...More
