Set in bustling village of Ashleworth nearby to the River Servern and Malverns is the delighful Ashleworth Hub, a purveyor of local and homemade produce served in their busy on-site cafe and well stocked deli.
Popular with cyclists and walkers alike, they pride themselves in using local suppliers throughout, including Peter Cooks Bread, Plenty Pies, Drapers Bakery, St George’s Bakery and DJ Perks fruit and veg.
Their cakes are delicious – we loved the white chocolate and raspberry flapjack which was just what we needed before tackling the Malvern Hills. The Peter Cooks Bread almond croissants are also a must try!
As for savoury options there’s a large menu which include jacket potatos, filled baps, toasted sandwiches, full English/veggie breakfasts, salads and ‘hub’ specials. There’s also quick bites including quiches, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, pasties, samosas and pork pies. See our gallery for the full menu.
Youll find plenty of outdoor seating in their patio area for sunnier cycles, with indoor seating too inside of the deceptively spacious black and white timbered building.
The staff are extremely welcoming to cyclists and if you suffer a mid-cycle puncture or require a repair, they even carry their own spares to get you going. Ashleworth Hub is at the heart of the local community and hosts regular events including gin tasting and Yorkshire day – complete with puds (see our pictures for more) whilst also serving as the local post office.
