Description: Built in the 14th century with history dating back as far as 1365, our popular venue received a complete makeover in 2012 but still retains much of its historic feel. We aim to deliver a relaxed atmosphere, flavour packed food, and truly enjoyable drinks. We open early and close late, from coffee to cocktails our bar has something for everyone; an exciting and accessible wine list, a full range of premium spirits, world renowned Lavazza coffee, and a whole lot more. We don’t have to travel far to find great ingredients, and our kitchen uses the best local suppliers to produce our menu. From our stonebaked pizzas to our ‘pub favourites’, and our famous Sunday roast, you’ll find our food is packed full of flavour thanks to the skills of the kitchen crew.

We were drawn inside by the beautiful exterior of the building and decided to have dinner there in the evening. The food is very plentiful & well cooked, the staff are friendly but somehow its not a tourists pub in my opinion. Once inside it feels like a locals' pub, not unfriendly but not welcoming either. Its not a fault of the venue but the loud drunken man at the bar, the customer asleep at his table and the tableful of people who stopped talking & just stared at us as we walked in were offputting. Next time we visit Ludlow we will try somewhere else.

A couple of days ago we called in this pub for lunch and a drink. The place was empty of customers except for one family who were just getting settled at a table and a young man on his own. Two female members of staff saw us standing at the bar; one was talking to the young man and one was out the back but she definitely saw us waiting. We waited three minutes but neither member of staff came to serve us - they did not even acknowledge our presence by saying that they would be with us in a minute. In the end, we walked out and went to another establishment a few minutes away, I suggest you do the same.

Good value and choice for drinks & food in this comfortable friendly pub in the centre of Ludlow. A very generous portion of ribs was more than enough with a side of chips.

We called in to the Bull for lunch. We found the music to be too loud. We both had fish and chips. The haddock was beautifully cooked but the chips could have been a touch browner. No-one checked if our meals were ok. My husband did not like his mushy peas, he said they had no taste. We have been to the Olde Bull previously but this time it did not meet our expectations.

We visited here on 30th June. The staff were very friendly and there was a nice atmosphere in the pub. The food was lovely, we both had the steak and kidney pie. Very nice and large portions. Would definitely eat here again if in the area.
