Having tried to have food at another establishment we tried to find another place. We entered into the tavern and was instantly asked what would we like. We got a table a menu and drinks all within minutes and had ordered our food. Cider was lovely, food of which we went for a "light-bite" we couldn't finish! Lovely huge baguette,... More

Visited following a visit to the Rose and Crown, given a table, served drinks and then told they were too busy to do food. Well what a totally different experience at Ye Olde Bull Ring Tavern. A very warm welcome. Great food and failed to finish the light bite. Unlike the Rose and Crown, will definitely be visiting again.

What a terrible meal. Made the mistake of having a burger. The skinniest pub burger I've ever had, straight out of a frozen packet, it was not a frozen burger price!! Accompanied by tasteless chips. My friends admittedly said their meals were ok.

We went for Sunday lunch here on 23/10/2016. The menu option works really well at 3 levels of pricing (1, 2 or 3 courses) and the options of meals available. The restaurant and bar were heaving but the staff were really efficient and the table and bar was managed extremely well, we didn't have to wait long for our order... More

As strangers in town this place looked very welcoming from the outside. It was really quaint inside and very friendly staff. It did however house the local nutter . An old guy who loves to whistle and dance to any tune on the free jukebox. He was harmless and great entertainment value. Think the barman was called connor and was... More

Hi Shaun, i think you may have 'reviewed' the wrong Pub, we are Ye Olde Bull Ring Tavern, we have no staff called Connor (in fact we only have 1 male bar man) The pub just down the road from us called, 'The Bull Hotel' does however have a bar man called Connor. We also don't have a jukebox. Thanks... More

Depends what you're after, if its a place for reasonably cheap alcohol with loud mates then this is great, but for a good pint with friends or family then there are better places to go in Ludlow.

Our dinner at this pub was satisfactory. The food was good and the service also good. The prices for food and drinks were reasonable. The ambience was nothing great, and the comfort could have been better.

Thank M G
