“Original menu; loved the Venison burger!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

The Clive looks like a bit of a run of the mill restaurant on the outskirts of Ludlow. Old building, modern interior with friendly and attentive staff.

Came here for lunch with the extended family and they catered well for a large(ish) party.

The menu is quite original so we needed a bit more time to weigh up the options. I went for the Venison burger which was fantastic. Offal was a major feature of the menu and one of our party went for the beef shin (which got the thumbs down quite resoundingly)!

Everyone else seemed happy and I'll happliy return.

“Venison Burger to Die For”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

Had a family lunch here the other week.

Very friendly senior staff. Modern decor in historic building.

Three of us were intrigued by the venison burger and we weren't disappointed. Full of amazing flavours and a "kick" which we later found out was from the Cayenne pepper dropped in by the chef.

All three courses were excellent, accompanied by a great wine list and choice of beers.

It did take a while for things to get going though and having had drinks in the bar where our order was also taken - when we were told we'd be called through just before the first course was to be served - we did end up waiting over 20/25 minutes after being seated in the main restaurant.

But definitely somewhere we'd return to again.

“Huge expectations”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

My husband booked a table at this well rated restaurant when we planned our break in Ludlow, taking note of other reviews and the reputation of the restaurant. It is a pleasant eating place, but nothing exceptional at all; in fact both my husband and I were rather underwhelmed by the menu selection and the food. Maybe The Clive is in transition to a stage where it can set the pace in its restaurant provision, maybe it is compromised by the accommodation part of its establishment. However, I would recommend taking a punt on some of the other eating places in the area, from the gastropubs in Ludlow, to the whole food restaurants, that seem to have a better direction of what they want to offer their guests, rather than trying to be all things to all people and rather missing the mark.
