About the Pub

Hidden away in a courtyard, the Rose & Crown is probably Ludlow’s oldest pub. There are documents showing that there may have been an ale house on this site in 1102. It boasts a thirteenth century mullioned window with trefoil in the rear stone wall. It was also used as coaching house for the Bewdley coach.

Nowadays, a comprehensive refurb and re-styling by owners Joules Brewery of Market Drayton. has created a much larger pub, and yet with more intimate areas to relax in. A hidden fireplace has been exposed and beams have been revealed which were blocked up since the 1960's. The emphasis is on wood, in all its various colours - some old and some new - and the flooring is mainly oak, with quarry tiling. The original restaurant has been transposed into a panelled "Mouse" room, basically the bar, and guests are invited to search for wooden mice created by Robert "Mouseman" Thompson. The new restaurant was formerly the toilets, and the food is good honest "pub grub", such as Bangers & Mash or Bubble & Squeak. The "Sun Room" is open to the elements on one side, but is still popular with those that need air without sun or rain. The rear is formed by the medieval wall. The garden area in front is a pleasant place to loiter, with masses of flowers, but no grass. A private room is available upstairs for small groups.

Re-opened in July 2016, the renovation is absolutely stunning, and has enabled the Rose & Crown to re-connect with its history.

The food on Sunday comprises a carvery and is therefore subject to availability during the afternoon.
