delicatessen is an area that we’re looking to develop further. It
falls into two sections. The Ledbury Pie Shop where we are
developing a fantastic range of our own cooked pies and ready meals
– all made with rare breed meats and the finest ingredients – and
our traditional Delicatessen where we are adding more and more new,
locally sourced products that reflect the same level of quality that
we expect from the rest of the shop.
The Ledbury Pie Shop
Come back and check this out as we are adding new products all the
time. The range includes a great selection of rare breed steak pies
using different complimentary classical ingredients. Our Steak & Ale
Pie with Stilton is out of this world. We also have Simply Steak – a
pie that’s all prime rare breed beef – Steak & Kidney or Steak &
Mushroom. All our pies are filled to the brim with top quality meat
– a world away from the mass-produced cardboard, gravy and gristle
that you find in most outlets – and come with a light puff pastry
top. Using only Free Range Chicken, we also produce some fantastic
Chicken pies – Chicken & Ham and Chicken & Mushroom - and our Lamb
and Apricot is pretty good too.
We found a list of ingredients for a Herefordshire speciality from
times past and through experimentation have recreated the Elizabeth
Pasty using pork, pork offal, fruit and spices, in a shortcrust
pastry case. It’s become a real favourite and makes a man sized
lunch that’s so versatile.
Our Ready Meals range is also under development but you can already
order Rare Breed Beef and Mushrooms in Red Wine, Provencale Pork,
Indonesian Chicken Curry, a wonderful Bolognaise sauce and Baboti
Loaf – a delicious curried meat loaf from South Africa that is spicy
and great whether served hot or cold. You can order portions or a
whole loaf weighing around 500g.
We offer our own sliced cold roast meats – all rare breed or free
range poultry – a selection of British cheeses including Charles
Martell’s renowned offerings, (well he is only about 5 miles away
from the shop), delicious pâtés, locally smoked fish and a fantastic
range of organic dairy produce from nearby Weobley that includes
crème fraîche, yoghurts, wonderful creamy butter and more.
And don’t forget your eggs. Our large hen’s eggs are totally Free
Range and local and we offer Quail’s eggs too so go on, treat
yourself! We also stock Duck eggs too when we can get them.
