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

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at The Clive. I was so pleased to read that the staff were friendly and efficient. May I sincerely apologise that you felt underwhelmed with your choice of the salmon, the chef had decided to keep the dish simplistic after the indulgence of Christmas, many on New Years day...

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.

We stayed here with some friends for one night. Apart from a slightly chaotic check in, the staff were wonderful and looked after us very well. Our room was very large with comfy beds, and a lounge area. Dinner was delicious and breakfast the next morning in the Ludlow Kitchen across the car park was also very good. The staff... More
