“Excellent fresh food by the river”
Reviewed 3 August 2011

We had lunch here today on the terrace with a view over the river, and the food - gnocchi in a ragu sauce, a lemony tagliatelle with red chard, and local pork salami for main courses, and a vanilla panecotta with wildberries, and a freshly baked lemon polenta cake for dessert (the latter was sublime) - was excellent. The service was very friendly. Children and a couple of dogs were having a great time playing on the green next to the Cafe, or in the gentle shallow water of the river below the terrace. We came at 12 noon - and it was very busy shortly after. It's location is away from the main tourist crowds in the centre of Ludlow, which is good - you'd only find this place if you were looking for it. We'll be going back very soon.

“A lovely little place”
Reviewed 22 June 2011

We called in at The Green Cafe by chance one afternoon for coffee and cake and were very impressed. Service was very friendly and prompt and the food was excellent, in fact so much so that we had to return the next day to repeat the experience. We are still drooling over the lemon buttermilk scones with lemon curd.

Some other customers were just finishing lunch and their food looked scrummy too. This is surely the nicest cafe/restaurant in Ludlow.

“A wonderful cafe on the River Teme”
Reviewed 21 April 2011

The Green Cafe is a lovely little place, right on the River Teme, next to Dinham Weir. The food is all cooked in-house, using locally-sourced, organic ingredients. Absolutely everything that can be recycled is recycled . The menu was beautifully simple and the food delicious. The staff were really
friendly and very informative. The only downsides are; 1. there aren't many tables inside, as it's a very small building, so booking's advised unless it's a sunny day. 2. They don't accept debit/credit cards.
We ate at Le Becasse the previous evening and, honestly, although the two places are world's apart, it wasn't as good an experience as the Green Cafe.
