We spotted this place when we were wandering around the town at lunchtime the previous day. The place was heaving so were unable to get a table but decided to call in later the next day. The tacit worked and managed to get in around 2.30pm. It is really a fish counter with 2 or 3 tables and window shelf... More

Ordered sea food plate, came with prawns smoked salmon smoked mackerel and really delightful creamy smoked mackerel pate, I had to fight to get my share! Considering its a fish shop, staff wonderful, service great, and good value for money . Only problem , it's about and hours drive for us, but well worth it.

We enjoyed fresh lobster, and smoked salmon, both served with local bread. Wines also available to accompany your chosen dish. A simple but excellent meal.

Drove more than 2 hours to get here for my father-in-law's birthday yesterday. Was well worth the drive. We had two platters and was more than we could have hoped for and so fresh! We were made to feel really welcome by the owners and even the locals. Although if this place was my local i'd have a smile on... More

Couldn't get fresher produce unless you jumped in the sea and took a bite out of anything swimming past! Lucky enough to get in straight away, small place but adds to the cosyness.Had the mixed platter with a side order of plump oysters and a lovely bottle of white wine.

The fish speaks for itself beautiful high quality fresh fish simply prepared, in this tiny fish shop / restaurant, in the centre of Ludlow perfect for a hot summers day, as there is some seating outside. Seating inside is limited, so I prefer to eat outside.

Visited Ludlow for Christmas Shoping and eat lunch at The Fish House by chance. Had a perfect mixed fish platter of smoked mackerel, crayfish, brown shrimp, brown crab, langoustine, smoked salmon, samphire and delicious bread. Amazing how well horseradish sauce goes with smoked mackerel! - perfect lunch! Will definitely go back for oysters in 2017!

You must try to get in here. The place is relatively small but its popularity makes it essential to book so as not to be disappointed. Ideally positioned in the town centre with an interesting sawdust and barrel furniture accompanied by the wonderful sight of the fresh food on display. We were lucky - a few people left as we...

The Fish House is not a restaurant but a high quality fishmongers with a small seating area within the shop (summertime seating outside) where fresh shellfish can be selected from the counter. We are fully licensed with a small selection of excellent wines. Lunch is served between 12 noon and 3pm. Open Wednesday through to Saturday.
