After a lovely walk in Ashes Hollow (up the lane) we enjoyed an excellent lunch - two of us had roast partridge from the specials board, and the other two had fish. The food portions were generous, freshly prepared and very tasty. We shared a dessert - also very good. The only quibble was that the food was quite slow... More

I've lost count of the number of exploitative Shropshire pubs I've been to which serve bad food to customers who either don't know better or are so close to the grave that the term 'repeat business' isn't really a viable aim. This is an attractive and cosy pub in a perfect location for walkers, with a good choice of beers... More

Sorry you were not impressed with your visit yesterday (Saturday 10th), yet again someone else who likes to go away and vent a response, rather than to the staff, who thankfully you say were friendly. The leather chairs certainly were not cheap when purchased (however some do need changing) the salad is freshly made and we use freeze chilled chips... More

Lovely country pub, provided a room beautifully decorated for 30 adults and 6 children, fantastic food, attentive service and super atmosphere. This was our family get together to distribute our Christmas presents and catch up. We had all travelled from all corners of GB everyone had a great time.

We went on a Tuesday night for the first time, thinking there'd probably be a limited menu, but how wrong could we be! Pheasant in a rich wince sauce, plaice stuffed with crab meat and pork with posh mash, and brilliant chips! Gorgeous, every mouthful. The beer selection was excellent, we were really, really impressed. The surroundings weren't fussy, it... More

Had a lovely meal at this pub two years ago so decided to return recently whilst in the area, and what a big mistake this was. I elected to try the fresh plaice fillets stuffed with white crab meat in a sea food sauce and was led to believe this was chef prepared and may take some time. I was... More

We would like all visitors to the Ragleth Inn to enjoy their experience if this is not the case we expect them to inform us at the time of the visit. You chose not to do this and decided to put pen to paper to Tripadvisor. With out doubt, as you say "can not fool this guy" I would have... More

Popped in here after a morning's walk. As a group we asked for a plate of sandwiches. What we got was a selection of the best mini baguettes I have ever tasted: beef and cheese, sausage and onion, bacon and brie, ham and cheese. The onion was so beautifully fried, just slightly caramelised, and the beef and cheese was sublime.... More

We had an enjoyable meal with friends, good steak, nice steak pie and friendly service. Cannot say anything really stood out but it was all well cooked, the crumble was probably the best part, for dessert

Warm and welcoming inn. Little Stretton is off the main A49 but its worth the detour to visit this inn. Only opens at 6:00 so don't visit earlier. Menu and food worth waiting for. I had the roast duck and it was really nice, with plenty of crisp vegetables. I treated myself to the Meringue roulade and I was delighted.... More

What an amazingly welcoming place - the reviews are all spot on, a beautiful country pub, with great food and a very relaxed professional team. The kitchen really knows how to cook. Really recommend. Superb.

Situated in the lovely village of Little Stretton 12 miles south of Shrewsbury, The Ragleth Inn is set in beautiful countryside a quarter of a mile off the A49.Dating back to 1663, the Ragleth Inn offers all you expect from an English Country Inn. The village is just south of Church Stretton, lying snug between the hills on what used to be the main road to Ludlow before it was by-passed. To the east are the wooded slopes of the Ragleth and to the west rises the Long Mynd.The Ragleth boasts one of the best pub gardens in Shropshire, set in approximately half an acre of lovely shrubs and trees. With the Ragleth Hill to one side, and the Longmynd to the other, the surrounding views are spectacular.The garden itself has benches which can seat up to 70 and is ideal for younger children with two large trampolines. Just two minutes walk behind the pub is the Small Batch campsite, nestled at the base of Ashes Hollow.The Ragleth offers two lounges with seating for 40 between them. There is also a separate dining room, which overlooks the garden area, and which seats 30.The new propriaters took over as new owners of The Ragleth Inn in June 2005. They closed the pub straight away to completely renovate it. The first thing was to knock off the plaster and expose all the lovely old brick walls and sand blast the old beams back to the original. Having fitted a new log burner in one of the lounges, The Ragleth now guarantees a warm and friendly welcome.
