We arrived on a busy Easter Saturday lunchtime without having booked as a large family group - 8 adults + 5 children. We were made welcome and after short wait a table was arranged. We had a light lunch menu and each of us, including the children, really enjoyed the food. The trampoline in the garden was an added bonus!

Walked from Church Stretton to Little Stretton knowing we would find this Inn for some lunch. It was recommended to us & so glad we went. Hubby had steak & ale pie full of beauitiful lean steak and I had the beef lasagne. Piping hot and beautifully presented. Lovely friendly welcoming staff and a friendly country pub which in true...

Ok two qualifiers before we get into this. 1. when we visited it was a busy BH Saturday 2. Being very English and not complaining on the spot isn't entirely fair to the pub......but. We arrived as scheduled for our rebooked 8pm table. Despite Mrs Pearls pre booking a table in the bar due to having our dog with us... More

Strange review but will do my best to address it! 1.Yes it was a very busy Bank Holiday Saturday night 2. Being English not wanting to complain on the spot (why not if we were wrong in any way) As stated you were booked in at 8.00pm with no mention of the Dog when booking we soon altered other tables...

Dropped by whilst walking the hound over Long Mynd (dogs are allowed in one room of the pub) and the Ludlow Gold was in very good form, slipping down very nicely to quench our thirsts. The food was very good and I enjoyed my steak and ale pie accompanied by fresh vegetables and chips. The vegetables might have been a... More

I visited for dinner on a Saturday and had made a table reservation. That turned out to be a good thing as the restaurant is clearly popular and was completely full. The regular dinner menu and the Specials menu were both extensive. As I prefer not to eat red meat, I was especially impressed with the number of seafood dishes... More

This was our third visit to this lovely pub. It has a cosy and friendly feel. The food is always of a high quality. I had homemade chicken, bacon and leek pie with new potatoes and fresh vegetables- it was first class and very reasonably priced for the quality. The staff were lovely, friendly and efficient. A good place to... More

We dined at the Ragleth for the umpteenth time, and as always we were not disappointed. Excellent food, excellent drink, excellent service as we have come to expect from Wendy and her superb team......plus of course, this is such an attractive pub in such an attractive part of Shropshire.Simply the best!

Did a fantastic walk up from LIttle Stretton to the Pole Bank and back down Townbrook hollow, a stunning valley to descend. The Ragleth Inn had been recommended in our Dog walkers guide to Shropshire and was great. A huge menu, at least 6 specials and a large beer garden where we sat with our 2 dogs. They are actually...

Description
Situated in the lovely village of Little Stretton 12 miles south of Shrewsbury, The Ragleth Inn is set in beautiful countryside a quarter of a mile off the A49.Dating back to 1663, the Ragleth Inn offers all you expect from an English Country Inn. The village is just south of Church Stretton, lying snug between the hills on what used to be the main road to Ludlow before it was by-passed. To the east are the wooded slopes of the Ragleth and to the west rises the Long Mynd.The Ragleth boasts one of the best pub gardens in Shropshire, set in approximately half an acre of lovely shrubs and trees. With the Ragleth Hill to one side, and the Longmynd to the other, the surrounding views are spectacular.The garden itself has benches which can seat up to 70 and is ideal for younger children with two large trampolines. Just two minutes walk behind the pub is the Small Batch campsite, nestled at the base of Ashes Hollow.The Ragleth offers two lounges with seating for 40 between them. There is also a separate dining room, which overlooks the garden area, and which seats 30.The new propriaters took over as new owners of The Ragleth Inn in June 2005. They closed the pub straight away to completely renovate it. The first thing was to knock off the plaster and expose all the lovely old brick walls and sand blast the old beams back to the original. Having fitted a new log burner in one of the lounges, The Ragleth now guarantees a warm and friendly welcome.
