In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Crown dates from Tudor times and was first licensed in 1790. The kitchen has a 'Local to Ludlow' policy that might take in a reworking of breakfast for black pudding croquettes with Boston beans, bacon and 'fried bread', or involve adding pea pesto, prosciutto and pickled fennel to scallops, for starters. Inspired mains include tapenade-crusted salmon with olive oil mash and creamed leeks in beurre rouge and braised Bridgnorth brisket with butter bean fricassée, roast roots, pickled walnuts and polenta fritters. For afters, orange crème brûlée with cranberry ice cream rubs shoulders with banana parfait and caramel popcorn in toffee sauce.
