    Ludlow Restaurants

    The Golden Moments Indian restaurant is situated on Broad Street just a stones throw from the centre of town.

For the main course, I chose chicken tikka masala...

    Shrewsbury Things to Do

    Probably the most enjoyable way to pass the time in Shrewsbury is just to walk its many meandering streets. From wide avenues lined with shops, to claustrophobic lanes winding up the hillside, the old streets are a joy. It seems that every street on the Severn encircled hilltop has a name that evokes centuries old, names like Dogpole, Bear Steps,...

    The Swan has got to be the best looking half timbered building in Bridgnorth. The bulging walls and wonky roof just add to the character of the building.

    My home town of Newport, Shropshire holds the record for the lowest temperature ever recorded in England and Wales. This was during the severe (by British standards) winter of 1981-82 when on the 10th January 1982 Newport recorded a low of -26.1 C, this temperature was only beaten (the same night I believe) by Braemar in Scotland which recorded...

  • lomi's Profile Photo

    by lomi Updated Feb 8, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I think this might just take the award for being the oldest working brewery in Britain.

    I took the family here for a meal, and everyone, including two fussy children enjoyed the food.

    As well as food they specialise in home cask beers:

    1642 Three Tuns Beer: A golden bitter with light maltiness, comprising nutty and coffee flavours, leading to a refreshing medium/strong, spicy bitterness with a long-lingering finish.

    Clerics Cure: A light-tan beer presenting medium malty-sweetness with powerful, spicy, floral bitterness and hop character designed to re-create the iconic style of India Pale Ales of the 19th. Century.

    XXX: A beer from a recipe passed down by the Roberts family who owned the brewery for several generations; a pale-straw-coloured, premium bitter with simple, light malty-sweetness, delicately balanced with light bitterness of floral, earthy character.

    Favorite Dish: All the dishes use locally sourced, fresh ingredients

    First courses hot smoked salmon salad with dill vinaigrette, whole baked camembert with "dipping bread" and satay king prawns with peanut dip.

    Main courses include beef & wild mushrooms in 3x beer with root vegetable mash and chargrilled rump steak burger with tomato/coriander salsa, coleslaw & fries.
