Heaps of character in well run and friendly rural pub with seasonal bar food and real ales

The county's oldest oub, this place was first licensed in the 15th c. It's in a delightful rural setting where little has changed over the centuries and our readers are as fond of the place as the chatty locals are. The rambling, low-beamed traditional bar has a roaring winter log fire, a cauldron, black kettle and pewter jugs in a vast inglenook fireplace, aged standing timbers from a knocked-through wall, and red and green tapestry seats solidly capped in elm; board games and dominoes (they have two pub teams). Ludlow Best and Sharps Doom Bar with guests such as Purple Moose Elderflower Ale and Three Tuns XXX on handpump, eight wines by the glass, ten gins, several malt whiskies and farm cider. A comfortable dining area has exposed old beams and studwork. This is a glorious spot for walks, such as the one up to the summit of Caer Caradoc, a couple of miles to the west (ask for directions at the pub), and the front courtyard makes the most of its beautiful position.
