Will Ledbury be next? Openhighstreet.com offers the ability to shop with local high street shops and have produce delivered to your home at a time to suit you. Recently featured in the Observer/Guardian article, it may be what the high street needs to provide the convenience of the supermarket and provide the local, fresh, quality produce of the high street. Only available in Hereford now, will Ledbury be next?
The Prince of Wales pub in Church Lane has a beer menu that as well as describing the beer – fancy a “light and fruity beer with good hoppy bitterness”? then an Otter Bitter is for you – also provides the distance from the brewery. So that fruity Otter has come 87 miles, whereas a drop of Butty Back only has to stagger 9.5 miles to quench your thirst.
Well done to the Prince of Wales for thinking local.
