“poor service!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

It is such a shame i have to write a bad review about this place, we didn,t even get to try any of the ale or pies on offer. We called in as we were staying locally and wanted to try a pie..we stood at he bar deciding on whta ale to try and contemplating the half pint testers they offer..The lady behind the bar came up..not a hello or a smile present just a what do you want? we said not sure at the moment to which we recieved a sharp humph and a very stroppy i will come back when you do know!! I work with the general public, in the catering sector, i have my own business,,,and i would have expected a smile, a greeting. and a can i help you or a reccomendation to help us choose!! My advice....retrain your staff to leave personal problems at the door..sadly we will not be returning

“Nice pub serving great local meat pies”

A good pub meal of locally made meat pies to buy and take away or eat in. Wonderful selection of fillings - some very imaginative.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We had seen the "Ludlow Pie Company" advertised in the window of the Church Inn, so decided to give it a try. On the night we went only about one-third of the listed pies were available. I had set my heart on a lamb pie, but this was one of the many that were
unavailable, so I chose venison. I found it disappointing. When the pies arrived at the table the pastry was burnt, there was very little veg with them and the taste was average. Frankly I could have cooked better pies at home. A waste of money and we won't be going there again. The landlord was friendly but there are plenty of pubs in Ludlow with a far better atmosphere.
