Ledbury again celebrates our wonderful local food with the 5th Ledbury Big Breakfast taking place on Friday 27th, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th January.  20 local venues in and around Ledbury will be taking part on one or more days in this event organised by Ledbury Food Group.

This year we welcome for the first time the Seven Stars, Eastnor Vintage Tearoom, Ceci Paolo and the Homend Bakery Tearoom.

Everyone has again excelled themselves with breakfast specials for this event.  For breakfasts with a difference try a Scottish Breakfast with tattie scones, breakfast muffin hollandaise, French toast with bacon and syrup, several interesting variations on hash with egg, smoked haddock, kedgeree in several styles, rosemary and garlic flat mushrooms, pulled pork benedict, local yoghurt, “build your own benedict”, waffles, pancakes with bacon and cider syrup, scotch egg with tomato fondue, luxury porridge, quail scotch eggs, garlic mushrooms with kale, scrambled local eggs, apple and cinnamon loaf and, of course, not forgetting a full “Herefordshire” English breakfast.
