Ye Olde Punchbowl Inn is certainly Ye Olde, even by the standards of British country pubs. The building has been there for at least 700 years – nobody knows exactly how long it has stood on what is now Ludlow Road – and has been a pub since 1740, serving the traveller, the public of Bridgnorth and all others who entered their doors. The menu now is classically British, with a full carvery, an a la carte menu and a full wine list that takes in the best of local ingredients. Reserve a table and gather up your whole crew for a meal that has stood the test of time.

We visited today for a celebratory meal for my parents golden wedding anniversary. We had a lovely time - thank you to all the staff. The food was lovely and very very good value for money and good quality. I had specific dietary restrictions which were catered with a lovely vegan option. It was very busy, which we expected, but the staff were very organised. We will definitely be visiting again.
Fantastic room and restaurant. Lovely staff, very welcoming venue, highly recommended!
The staff were Pleasant and the food was really nice
The country pub has been a British institution for a fair old while, and Ye Olde Punchbowl Inn on the outskirts of Bridgnorth has been there since 1740 at the latest, and likely far longer. That isn’t any reason to rest on their laurels, though, and they have strove to maintain forward-looking in their approach. To that end, they’ve implemented the first AGA carvery in the country, a unique concept by which they build a dining experience that takes from the British carvery tradition and expands on it, bringing the cooking right into the heart of the restaurant.
The method of cooking is one thing, but the meats going into it are the most important thing, and at Ye Olde Punchbowl Inn, they don’t scrimp on that either. Scottish beef, Shropshire pork, Warwickshire turkey, Far Forest venison and lamb, as well as roast vegetables, garlic potatoes, cauliflower cheese and more. Take a trip down Ludlow Road just outside Bridgnorth – south of Telford and east of Wolverhampton – and experience something that applies new methods to classically British cuisine – so book a table now.
