Off the beaten track but still only 15 minutes from the historic Ludlow town centre and castle, is the exquisite restaurant with rooms, Old Downton Lodge. It has become a beacon for fine dining and is one of the few elite restaurants in the UK to attain four AA Rosette standard. This very special find is in the tiny parish of Downton on the Rock and is a collective of medieval, half-timbered and Georgian buildings - an 18th century farmhouse with converted stables and barns and a herb and flower garden courtyard, the ideal spot to relax with a fine glass of wine. The restaurant, a stone and timber barn restyled to contemporary tastes whilst retaining original period features, offers a six and nine course tasting menu as well as a three course market menu serving modern British cuisine. The property also boasts ten characterful bedrooms to make this a great gourmet stay destination also.
