In the wonderful Worcestershire village of Hallow, on the busy A44 just three miles north of Worcester is a new cafe for 2023, purpose built and situated next to Ladygo Stores owned by the same family.

For those early risers (served until midday) there’s all your favourites including winter oats, granola, a full English or veggie breakfast, avo on toast (with the brilliant, locally sourced Peter Cooks Ledbury loaf), eggs or beef brisker Benedict and varying brioche baps; fillings including bacon, sausage, halloumi, smashed hash brown and fried egg. There’s also creamy mushrooms on toast, a range of decadent burritos (full English or veggie) and a sweet and savoury waffle available too.

At lunch there’s a superb selection of warm sandwiches; the New Yorker (beef brisket, brioche roll, gherkin, crispy onions), Mexican (tortilla wrap, peri peri chicken, cheese, salsa), No.1 club (bread layers, chicken, streaky bacon, turkey, lettuce), Melt (Ledbury loaf, caramelised onions, mozzarella cheese, chorizo) and veggie (tortilla, halloumi, salsa, avocado, sriracha mayo).

Additionally you’ll find a range of brioche burgers (double beef, panko chicken, battered fish, moving mountain – vegan) alongside a soup of the day, ploughman’s and fishcake.

For those with a sweet tooth like us, cakes and tray-bakes on our December visit included carrot, ginger, lemon and Victoria sponge cake alongside a decadent rocky road and gluten free brownie.

Coffee is sourced from one of our favourite roasters Method Coffee, roasted just a stones throw away in the cathedral city of Worcester, until the city centre’s viaduct – another coffee house & cafe well worth a visit.

On the children’s menu there’s winter oats, granola bowl, mini English breakfast, egg or beans on toast and sweet waffles for breakfast. At lunch there’s mini burger & fries, sausage, chicken, fish & chips and a ‘picnic basket’ with a selection of sandwiches, crisps, traybake and carrot sticks.

Inside you’ll find a good number of tables for smaller groups alongside during the warmer months seating outside. Bike racking is due for 2024 and is the ideal stopping point when exploring the nearby climb of Ankerdine or Malvern Hills and the quiet rural roads surrounding this historic riverside, cathedral city.
