Welcome to

The Bridges, Ratlinghope.

If you are looking for a country pub in Shropshire, The Bridges is great place to visit. Situated at the foot of the Longmynd and the Stiperstones at the intersection of two rivers, The Bridges is hard to beat for an idyllic location.

Visitors also come from far and wide to sample the Three Tuns ales.

The pub is warm and welcoming with Will and Beth and our staff dedicated to making your time with us as enjoyable as possible. In the winter the log burner makes our garden room, a snug and comfy place to hang out whilst watching the rain battering down! During the summer enjoy the rural setting and the Shropshire sunshine with a paddle in the stream and an ice cream for the kids.

Dogs are welcome – all we ask is that you respect our other patrons and take care of your dog and their needs.

We offer a range of accommodation from the bunk house to our self contained Smithy.  Offering a comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings.

Whether you call in after a walk, a cycle ride or as a diner or drinker you can always be assured of a warm welcome.

We look forward to seeing you at The Bridges – a great country pub in Shropshire.
