No other county can compete with the quality and diversity of our local produce. Just look at the many markets, laden with fresh fruit and veg; or the butchers, the bakers, the delicatessens on almost every corner. You'll soon see why Shropshire is a gourmets idea of heaven.
All this bounty has had an interesting effect on the local restaurants. Ludlow has been described as "a little bit of France near the Welsh border" and you can see why.
Shropshire is renowned for its real ale and leads the way in the "home brew" revival. Real ale inns and micro-breweries including the Three Tuns at Bishops Castle which has been happily brewing since 1642 and now has a history of beer and brewing museum available to visit.
Shropshire to go - fill your fooddrink basket with wines from Tanners in Shrewsbury (Central England Wine Merchant of the Year for the 6th year running) or from the Wroxeter Roman Vineyard. Home smoked bacon from Maynards, Organic food from Pimhill, Market Drayton Gingerbread (- the locals prefer to dunk it in port), Quails eggs, local cheeses and real dairy ice-cream.
Chambers Brasserie offers an interesting and varied menu in the historical setting of one of Shrewsbury's oldest buildings.
