What we ate
With foodie Ludlow nearby and an abundance of excellent village pubs, it’s easy to eat out well in this corner of Herefordshire. For a delicious lunch in a chatty setting, head to Smokehouse Cicchetti Bar & Deli in Broad Street, Ludlow, a tiny Italian ‘tapas’ place with one long table shared by everybody. If you want to wander back on foot from the local pub, The Oak in Wigmore provides good opportunity for relaxed drinking. The Riverside at nearby Aymestrey commands an impressive position next to the bridge and navigates that tricky balance of friendly local and destination food pub. Or, for something extra special, The Stagg at Titley is a marvel and deservedly earned itself Dining Pub of the Year 2018 in the Good Pub Guide.
