I couldnít resist the chance to visit this as we had a weekend in Ludlow and glad I did. The downside first though, it has all the charm and ambiance of, well a Railway Shed I suppose, it is a big open space with a few industrial fittings, the brewery kit on the left and a few benches dotted around. There are some benches at the front where you have the delights of a car park and a large Aldi store to gaze over. On the positive side, I went through the pumps and all the beers were served well, the staff were a delight and keen to discuss the beers and the prices were decent. Watch out for the Sunday closing!!

I really like this place, visited over Christmas. As previous reviews state itís located right by the railway station. Big open plan building although it was toasty when I was there (perhaps sitting upstairs helped?) and there was a wood burner going. Ludlow range on offer, great beer and I highly recommend the pork pie which was absolutely superb (served with chutney). Good stuff.

Local CAMRA trip: just outside our area but Ludlow is a lovely little town and because of the (fairly) new Brewery location and visitor centre, we turned up ímob-handedí. The place was freezing to be honest: high celling with minimalistic fittings and furniture combind with the open plan huge ground floor ensured it was warmer outside than in! Even with 30 of us, it refused to heat up at all and after a couple of pints the women folk in the party wanted to move on and have a pub crawl: us blokes dutifully followed!
Three of their beers available, all cheaper than in pubs, I think we were being given a discount though, so maybe the prices are not as keen for ínormalí people. Iíd have stayed longer, but the cold was getting to me as well. We re-visited before the bus re-appeared but it was still very cold inside.
Visit by all means, but go wrapped up, or make sure it is a warm day!

We visited here on Saturday 10th November 2012. I was quite surprised that we hadnít been here before and that I also hadnít been aware of its existence until Lozís mum Isobel said she would take us there next time we were over in Herefordshire. As the address suggests it is very close to the railway but also close to the car parks that serve this area of town and actually near the three supermarkets, Tesco, Lidl and Co-Op. It would appear that the brewery have located themselves in and have renovated a much older building as the name suggest it would have been an old railway shed, it is quite a decent sized building with some old railway information on the walls inside. Once inside you have stairs to a mezzanine floor off to your right where you overlook the mash tun and FV, we sat up here. The bar is directly in front of you as you enter. The beer choice as you might expect is limited to the Ludlow range, and the beer if a tad unexciting was superbly kept. The place was quite large for the town and, airy and modernish, I would be surprised if it is ever that busy and I guess that it may rely on the odd birthday, work function to get any numbers in here, still I quite liked it and I guess will pop in here from time to time when next here.
