A wonderful evening meal was had by my wife and I to celebrate part of my wife's birthday. The food selection was excellent, particularly the smoked mackerel. There were a couple of hiccoughs with my main course, wait time and temperature. But, more importantly was the length the staff went to rectify the problem, apologising profusely and offering us our wine free of charge.

The restaurant itself was relaxed, warm and welcoming, definitely worth a return trip in the future.

Wow! What a find! We have been in Ludlow for a short break and ate here twice. This chef can cook! The choice of typical French dishes were excellent. The presentation perfect and the wines reasonably priced. It was rather like eating in a small local French bistro. Small, homely, cosy with a lovely ambience. And the food - to die for. Do book a table to avoid disappointment. If you are in the Ludlow area eat here - it's a must. We were so impressed we suggested to the owners that they moved closer to where we live! After eight years in Ludlow they have really established a reputation - and no wonder! Martin Lewis - Cheshire

After a disappointing visit in February (see previous review) we decided to give this restaurant another go when we visited Ludlow last week. The food was excellent - as it was last time - tasty, well presented, good choice, and more than adequate portion sizes. Most importantly after our experience last time, the service could not be faulted. We were very well looked after, including a lovely "low key" celebration of my partner's birthday, and received a complimentary bottle of wine as an apology for our previous visit. Such a positive response to negative criticism deserves recognition, and we are now even more keen to return next time we are in the area.

Enjoyed the beautiful, authentic French cuisine at The French Pantry on a walking trip to Shropshire.

Food was of the highest quality and the service friendly. Don't miss the cassoulet or the scallops.

It is quite small so might pay to call ahead.

We dined at the French pantry on the 8/4/14 a wonderfull experience and very good value for money. It id adviseable to book in advance as whilst we were there a constant stream of would be diners were having to be turned away as they were full all evening. Very friendly helpful staff who even took the trouble to phone us as we had left a very important package ( our snail shells that we were saving for our Great Grandaughter who collects snail shells) Thank you French Pantry for a wonderfull evening .
