Driving in the light, Costa fast upload, Spoons slightly before 08:00, multiple train tickets, late Welsh trains, busy railway breweries and The Beer in Hand.

Brewing By The Railway

Grey but mild and only two spaces left in the Travelodge car park. Happy Costa Bacon and Coffee to start the day. The Kings Fee where they are testing the new Chicken menu. Different train apps and very different ways of working. However FTTC, so Winning there.

Of course the Transport for Wales Class 175 was late however the Ludlow Brewery is only 100 yards from the Station. Traditional in outlook, however Cask forward and with Derailed brewing as their Keg subsidiary.

Of course the train was late returning to Hereford. Checking into my overnighter and then did some work work. Back out to The Beer in Hand Hereford. Excellent beer retreat but needs WiFi and to open earlier. Well past my bed time.

#mb02 2021 Prelude

The end of August and the Bank Holiday weekend and I’m only on #mb02. Cooler morning but Summer is most certainly back. Hereford, Ludlow and Worcester and many Fine Ales. Grey but dry. It was an early morning yesterday.

Right There by The Station

28 June 2019

From an Ancient Book I took a clue, well actually it was Retired Martin’s Blog again. Happening to already being in Hereford, home of the wonderful Hereford Beer House It was just a couple of taps on The Transport For Wales Rail app and I was on my way.

Hereford Railway Station. A ten minute walk from Wetherspoons

Yes despite being in England, Hereford Station is run by Transport for Wales. You have to feel sorry for them.

Transport for Wales Class 175 DMU
Still in Arriva Trains Wales Colours

However I got a seat and the aircon was working unlike the journey back.

Ludlow Railway Station

Not the largest of Railway Stations but at least it had a carpark. It’s on the edge of town. Across the road from Tesco and Aldi.

The Ludlow Brewery next to Ludlow Railway Station.
Drinking already in progress at 10:23

I had no idea that there was a Brewery next to the station and that it was open from 10:00. Twattery already in progress, always a good sign.

Nicely cool inside, great welcome, fast non captive portal WiFi and the toilets are clean. Marked down for a return visit. An excellent fine. Plenty of merch too.

Ludlow Brewery Opening Times

Handily it’s open seven days a week. Anyway onward.

The Rose and Crown. Ludlow Town Centre.

The Rose and Crown, an Old School Real Ale Pub in the town centre. A couple pints of cask and some Friday lunch. Ham, Eggs and Chips obvs.

Great Pub, so so WiFi.

The Church Inn just around the corner. More of a Gastropub and it may be The Ludlow Brewery Tap?

Back to The Ludlow Brewery as the station has no waiting room or toilets for that matter.

The start of the journey back to Hereford

A packed two carriage Class 150, no aircon but I did get a seat. The tunnel was the coolest part of the journey back.

There’s a Brewery next to The Station
