Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Andy Link

Where: Wardington’s Original Stage - Outer Bailey

Andy is the award winning Chef/Patron, Gardener and Bee Keeper of the 2 AA Rosette 'Riverside Inn' at Aymestrey in Herefordshire.

Born and raised on a farm in the county, this gave him the passion and respect for local produce, using only high quality local ingredients with the emphasis on 'seed to plate.'

Andy regularly demonstrates his skills to up and coming youngsters with his ethos being that nothing is wasted in the kitchen, not just for financial reasons but out of respect for the animal and produce grown.

He works with a fantastic project in Mortimer Forest regarding the long haired Fallow Deer, which aren't found anywhere else in the world, and if you're a fan of 'Countryfile,' you'll have seen him on there flying the flag for Mutton.

The accolades keep on coming, as 'Visit Herefordshire, Awards for Excellence 2017' saw The Riverside win the 'Best Eating Out' category.
