We stayed here and had a super time. Clean and comfortable. Good selection for breakfast and the location is ideal. It is a little walk to the centre but only took a few minutes. Also lovely views over the river from our room. Would happily stay again.

We only live half an hour drive from Ludlow but so happy we decided to go for an away from it all overnight stay here. Room was lovely, very comfortable with a river view, staff were very polite and professional, the absolute star of this place though has to be the menu and the quality of the food. My husband...

A friend and I had lunch here and we would both recommend it. The place was packed as there was a funeral wake taking place, this meant we had to eat in the lounge bar rather than the restaurant but this was no problem, it's a nice area with well spaced tables. We had worried that, with so many people...

This pub is set next to the river, a mere 10 minute walk into beautiful Ludlow. The staff are welcoming and the rooms extremely comfortable - the restaurant overlooks the river and the food is of an acceptable standard - breakfast was particularly good. My only negative was that the bar and Lounge bar were not particularly cosy or welcoming,...

We had a lunch here on a lovely day, sitting in the restaurant overlooking the river, quite stunning. The menu was quite good (not much of you are a vegetarian, but we are not so that didn't matter). The service was very good, a nice warm welcome and very attentive. The food was excellent, well cooked, nicely presented and very...

We ate in the restaurant which was busy but staff were very attentive...

This was a belated Christmas treat from my partner and a well needed couple of days away to relax. The Charlton Arms succeeded very well. We stayed in a room which was on the river side and could hear the rushing river with the windows closed. I love the sound of running water and it was so relaxing to go...

We stayed one night - the room was lovely, if a little warm and marred only by the lack of a working TV- down to Storm Doris apparently ! The Bar was friendly with some fine ales and Dinner was excellent. However, breakfast let it all down. The Menu was small but covered most bases and I chose one of...

We stayed in the Othello room, which is the one with the hot tub. At £160 a night I thought at first that it was expensive but thought it was good value when I saw the room. It's a big suite style room with a fantastic bathroom, bath, armchairs, tables and desk, plus the outside roof terrace is fantastic, with...

Very large pub with masses of eating areas. Must be fantastic in the summer with the view of the bridge and flowing river. However in the winter with cold and rain not a very inviting place. Car Parking nearly impossible!! Also I thought the place was not serving food as it looked empty. Waitress was very helpful and assured us...
