We really could happily have shared one meal between both of us. Steak and kidney pie was absolutely huge and excellent value. We are ashamed to say that w just could not finish it and therefore depriving the pub of us choosing a sweet course. We couldn't move for Ages!

Visited this traditional pub some time ago and the food was good and amazingly cheap. Prices now average/high. A fellow diner remarked about the dust on chair rails and made mistake of demonstrating by running finger along. I doubt if they had been cleaned for a year or more. General surroundings a bit basic.

We went in here most nights while on holiday in Ludlow as I just liked the general ambience and atmosphere in this pub. Another bonus is the food is very good and plentiful. Try the fish its yummy :)

This place caught our eye and......were we pleased.....you bet we were! I had a "surf & turf" which was superbly cooked and a very big portion. Wife had faggots (can't stand them personally!) which she LOVED and said they were amazing! We were only on a weekend visit to Shropshire but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone....

I have to admit, I am in love with historical architecture and Ye Olde Bull Ring Tavern was one of the first buildings I remember seeing as a child before venturing around the castle. To a degree, I suppose it can be compared to someone meeting their favourite actor or singer, and then finding that personality wise, they aren't all... More

Came at lunch time, place had a couple of people in . Asked passing waitress if we could just sit anywhere, said yes so took our seats. Plenty of selection of food.

lnbb93, thanks for taking the time to review us. So sorry your order wasn't placed correctly but we're glad you enjoyed the ultimate burger and the chicken salad. What type of milkshake did you order, for those who like a more exciting version we also offer Messy Milkshakes, a little more expensive but worth it in my opinion. Anyway, thanks... More
