The Ledbury Big Breakfast is coming…just not yet

We look forward to our annual breakfast treat – the Big Breakfast – but this year we will have to look forward for a bit longer.

Ledbury Food Group have postponed this year’s event from the end of January to Friday to Sunday, 11th to 13th March.

We have taken this decision because of the high number of Covid cases locally.  We want people to be confident to go out for a special breakfast, and for our venues to be confident that customers will turn out for this special event.

Hopefully this postponement will allow things to settle down.

All the venues are looking forward to serving you this year.

We have five places new to the event lined up – Pot and Page, The Corner Café, The Sunrise Café, The Ledberry and Janey’s – all in central Ledbury.

These join favourites The Feathers, The Talbot, The Malt House Gallery, The Market House Café, The Organic Café and the Seven Stars in Ledbury.  Outside town The Nest, Trumpet Corner and The Scrumpy House Restaurant (at Westons) will be joining the occasion.

For those who would like to cook their own, Wallers and Gurneys butchers, Handley Organics and Ceci Paolo plus our greengrocers and the weekly Country Market will all have local produce for you to create a special taste of Ledbury.

Provided things improve, full details of this year’s event will be available in late February.

In the meantime please continue to support our local food retailers and eateries as you are able in this quiet time of the year.

6th Ledbury Big Breakfast – 26th, 27th and 28th January 2018

Paul Gurney prepares for the 2017 Big Breakfast

Come along and join us as we celebrate the 6th Ledbury Big Breakfast, our “almost traditional winter event”. We welcome you to try something different for breakfast, to go out and enjoy a delicious meal to start the day, or buy something special to take home.

Food shops, cafes, and hotels in and around Ledbury will again be offering you all kinds of food to celebrate that most important of meals – breakfast, and what we at the Ledbury Food Group consider important – good locally produced food and drink.

This weekend is special for the variety of breakfast treats on offer from the lightest breakfast to the heartiest, many featuring the local produce for which Herefordshire is famous. Each venue is asked to put on their own breakfast specials, as well as their normal fare. Continue reading “6th Ledbury Big Breakfast – 26th, 27th and 28th January 2018”

Reasons to Christmas Shop in Ledbury …

We are very proud of our independent shops in Ledbury. Our town’s attractions have been recognised by none other than the Guardian in its feature on 10 great places to go Christmas shopping in Europe! They say, “There may be more obvious places for a festive UK shopping spree – Bath, with its Georgian backdrop and artisan quarter; Brighton for its fun vibe; Manchester and London for the sheer choice – but little Ledbury in Herefordshire is a picturesque, stress-free option. With its stilted 17th-century Market House, timber-framed buildings, great independent shops and arty vibe, the market town has bags of atmosphere. Plus it’s in a particularly lovely part of the country, should a winter walk beckon.” Continue reading “Reasons to Christmas Shop in Ledbury …”
