Full details of the 2024 Ledbury Big Breakfast now available   

Join us for Ledbury’s Celebration of Breakfast over the weekend of Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th February – the 12th Ledbury Big Breakfast

19 local venues in and around Ledbury are taking part on one or more days in this event organised by Ledbury Food Group to celebrate our local food and drink producers and retailers and a healthy breakfast.  The event takes place at cafes, pubs, hotels, butchers and delis in and around Ledbury.

Big Breakfast 2023

Again there is lots of choice from the lightest to the heaviest breakfast showing the ingenuity of our local food venues – check through the listing below for something to sample, savour and enjoy

Visit our butchers – Gurneys and Wallers – to discover their breakfast delights for you to take home and enjoy. 

Our delis will feature a wide range of local produce to take home to make a special breakfast.

The Country Market at St Katherine’s Hall on Friday will have lots of local produce for sale for your breakfast at home, as will Hellens Produce Market at Hellens Manor on Saturday.  Both will be serving breakfasts this year.

We have several first-timers this year for you to support – Blooms Fresh Sandwiches, Choccolastic, Hellens Manor Produce Market and The Ledberry (as under new management). 

Things get very busy on the Saturday morning – if you see something or somewhere you fancy please book in advance where possible to avoid disappointment.  More places now offer breakfasts on Sunday.

See below for full details of what specials are available, where and when – many venues will also offer their normal breakfast menu.  A number offer vegan, vegetarian and gluten free optionsTimes are when breakfasts will be available.
