Took 40 minutes from offering to starter arriving. Main course came within a minute of our started getting cleared - clearly some timing issues. I had a scallop starter: the scallops we did nicely and had a nice smoky flavour but there was virtually no pepper purée or garnish and the dish was quite dry. My wife had gravadlax which... More

After a chilly walk around Ludlow the warm welcome from the staff at The Clive was exactly what was needed. Very clean and smart environment which was warm and welcoming. The local ales; Ludlow and Hobsons are available, I had a pint of Ludlow Gold and Jen had a glass of Pinot Grigio; both excellent. My main was Ludlow Gold... More

This restaurant has obviously been a recent build on Lord Whatever's Estate. It is near an amazing Food Hall, Small garden shop and daytime coffee shops. There was a choice of atmosphere either fine dining restaurant or in the bar/lounge next to a wood burner. Very welcome on the cold and rainy night I went. The staff were very polite... More

If it hadn't been for the very slow service I would had given this 5 stars, but with a wait of an hour for our mains I feel unable to do this. That aside, the food was lovely, my ox cheek was delicious, melting in the mouth and I loved the accompanying carrots of assorted colours! The baked brandy custard... More

Visited for my father's 70th birthday. Lovely food and service but unfortunately we were seated at the entrance from the beginning of service which meant that everybody had to walk past our table. On a cold evening it meant that we got quite chilled quickly and nobody took any notice of the signs outside to enter through other door and... More

After spending the morning mooching around Ludlow, we suggested to our friends a visit to the Ludlow Food Centre on our way back to our rental property & then a late lunch in the bar area .of the Clive. Sunday lunch was still being served, so we chose to have an excellent meal.
