We stayed overnight in this lovely pub. The room was large and and beautifully decorated with "old world" charm. The bed was large and comfortable and the bathroom had a lovely big bath. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast very good. Will definitely come here again.

We stayed overnight at this pleasant pub. We also had a meal in the restaurant which was very good and staff were very nice too. After finishing our meal, we went for a drink in the bar. After a time it became more and more raucous and one or two people had obviously drunk too much. After one drink we...

Just had excellent Tagliatelle Alfredo and Mushroom Stroganoff (one each, not that much of a fatty ) from the Vegetarian section of great evening menu. Both awesome, very tasty. Warm and cosy pub with good service and open log burner. Most recommended.

My wife and I stayed here for Valentine's Day and the following 2 days to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the day on which we had our first date as teenagers. Our room (the Tollant) was superb with exposed beams and a huge, very comfortable bed which really suited the character of this old coaching inn. FIRST Top Marks for...

My wife and I stayed in a cottage about five miles from Knighton so, as Ludlow is around twenty miles away, there were very few choices of eating places within a short distance from which to choose. Knighton is a quiet town on the Welsh side of the border between Wales and Shropshire and to a metropolitan southerner no doubt...

Firstly may I say I has absolutely no problem with room. It was very clean and spacious. The Pub during the day was very hospitable with a good selection of Beers. However the party I was with had been invited to a social gathering elsewhere in Knighton, thus meaning we enjoyed a drink before and after the event. How anyone...
