Many thanks to everyone who made the Ledbury Big Breakfast such a great success over the weekend. We hope you enjoyed a good local breakfast from the wide range on offer.
As well as breakfasts hot, cold, eat in or takeaway for you to enjoy, this year for the first time the weekend included a breakfast for Ledbury businesses early on Friday morning and a staff breakfast at John Masefield School. Bill Wiggin MP and Mayor Bob Barnes made an early visit on Friday to a number of participants to celebrate the start of the event.
“Bill the Bell” Turberfield was on hand to hail the winning sausage in this year’s competition run by Trumpet Corner Tearoom and Llandinabo Farm Shop – a delicious pork, bacon, liver and onion creation suggested by customer Alan Brown who won a free breakfast for idea.
Special dishes enjoyed this weekend included Hereford Hop rarebit with chutney at the Market House Café, poached Herefordshire pear with bara brith at the Feathers, cheese and crispy bacon muffins at the Muse Café, eggs in Portobello mushrooms at Cameron and Swann, Eggs Benedict at Chez Pascal., and a special takeaway Bagel Bar at Four Oaks Delicatessen. Mrs Muffins and the Café at Nice Things tempted those with a taste for the traditional with their hearty English breakfast.
Outside Ledbury town, the Scrumpy House Restaurant at Weston’s Cider, Trumpet Corner Tea Room and the Nest, Hereford Road all joined in the fun of the event. In town, first timers Caffè 21 were cooking American pancakes and Delilah’s Café special breakfast omelettes. Handley Organics offered a tempting choice of breakfast bakery, and at lunchtime the Talbot celebrated with its Rock and Roll Bingo brunch hosted by Andy Ward. Our butchers Wallers, Gurneys and Llandinabo Farm Shop all had tempting offers to take home for breakfast. Well done to all who took part this year!
Please let us know if you have ideas for making this event even better in the future.
