Top Ludlow Restaurant with Rooms Wins Trio of AA Awards (1st September 2016)

Top Ludlow Restaurant with Rooms Wins Trio of AA Awards

The Cliffe at Dinham has recently won a trio of awards from the AA. Located across the river from Ludlow Castle, the property has been awarded the Four Gold Star Restaurant with Rooms, two Rosettes for the Restaurant and a Special Award for Breakfast.

Paul Brooks, the owner says “we were so pleased to have achieved such a good standard throughout the business which speaks highly of the effort made by our team of staff”. Ian Pugh, our head chef was previously at Mr Underhill’s for many years until its closure last December. Ian’s food is Modern British with emphasis on the use of local, seasonal produce.

When Paul and Barbara Brooks decided to purchase the Cliffe Hotel at Ludlow in early 2014 they were aware that the development of this fine Georgian house, originally built for a local solicitor, could take time. Some two years later and following a massive investment, The Cliffe at Dinham, a “restaurant with rooms”

offers 13 en suite bedrooms, dining in the Orangery & Terrace Room, a great facility for celebrations and a number of regular events. We serve lunch and dinner every day including traditional roasts for Sunday.

With many years of experience in the Hospitality trade Paul & Barbara were previously at the Clive Restaurant for 13 years where they carried out similar improvements and benefited from the excellent location on the A49 in Bromfield

The Cliffe at Dinham is ideally situated across the river from Ludlow Castle – a wonderfully peaceful spot just a few minutes from the town. Set in a superb position for walking and cycling.

“We are slightly off the beaten track so it has been a challenge to attract customers. We have launched a series of monthly events which include Live Jazz, Fish Nights in conjunction with The Fish House, our local fishmonger, and Tasting Dinners with Optional Wine Flight.

Celebrations are a major part of our growing business at The Cliffe and include birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. We offer sole use for the complete venue.

The Orangery with wonderful countryside views seats up to 50 guests and The Terrace Room up to 40.
