Baron at Bucknell

Home-made food in great walking country

At a glance

Bar menu
Wheelchair access

A stone’s throw from Ludlow in the lovely Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Baron sits at the foot of Bucknell Mynd. It’s beautifully peaceful and there are plenty of great walks if you need to work up an appetite. Good home-made food is what they promise here, and you can eat either in the charming restaurant or the airy conservatory. Start with roast sweet potato, beetroot, goats' cheese and pine nut salad, maybe, before moving on to game pie, or chickpea casserole. A choice of sandwiches and toasted paninis is available at lunchtime on Fridays and Saturdays.
