In my last post, I told you about foodie places that you really must go and see if you visit Ludlow. Today, I would like to tell you about the Ludlow Food Centre, which is located in Bromfield, just North of Ludlow. The food centre is basically a supermarket but it only stocks local produce. 80% of its goods comes from Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Powys. Some of its meat and vegetables come from very near to the premises in the Earl of Plymouth’s Oakly Park Estate that the centre is in. The food centre makes its own bread, butter, sausages and fresh ready meals in its own kitchen. One of the local specialities they make is the Shropshire Fidget Pie, as made by the Hairy Bikers during their visit whilst filming their Food Tour of Britain programme. The Food Centre also sells Brock hall Farm goats cheese, which is my favourite and is enough of reason alone for me to visit!
The Food Centre also has an excellent cafe that is ideal for a quick bite to eat or a long lunch. They serves everything from homemade cakes and biscuits, pork pie ploughmans, sandwiches, lasagne, chili con carne and pizza. Everything is fresh and made that day. The menu changes daily and depends on weather and season.
This concludes by short series about what a foodie should do in Ludlow. I hope you have enjoyed them and I hope it has inspired you to visit or return if you have not been for a while.
Happy Cooking! :-)
