The winner of the BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming award for ‘Best Local Food Retailer’ for 2009 is A.Ryan and Son in Much Wenlock. I am pleased to tell you that all the sausages and bacon used at The Stanage B & B come from that very butcher.

Not only do they supply us with vital breakfast ingredients but we regularly buy their amazingly good ‘venison in red wine pie’. Just see the queue outside each day to discover that people come from far and wide to shop. Best advert you could hope for.

Congratulations to Paddy and his team from all at The Stanage.
