HFD Indie Food Leafy sign

As a Herefordshire Writer I feel one of the best features of this county is our food! We have so many great cafes and restauarants to choose from and it’s guaranteed to release the glutton in you. This Bank Holiday we had the pleasure of a foodie frenzy weekend by way of Hereford Indie Food Festival! This Festival celebrates Hereford’s Independent food culture and is formed by the team behind “A Rule of Tum” Jon Stead, Edwin and Dorian Kirk.

Hereford Indie Food is a community driven project celebrating the independent food scene, chefs, producers + makers in Herefordshire. -HerefordIndieFood.com

Queues abounded on The Shack Revolution’s pop-up cocktail stall. Many of you will be familiar with brothers James & Rich Manning who started The Shack Revolution bar located in Bastion mews. Their farm-made boutique and bespoke bars pop up everywhere around the country from Weddings, corporate events and even Wembley Stadium and football clubs! They also provided some live acts via their Shackoustic Sundays spot attached to their drinks booth.

Next time you’re on a night out in Hereford, visit their bar for pizza, beer or cocktails!

Coffee & Cafe stalls

The festival culminates into a Bohemian foray beginning with Makers Market stalls upon entry. Then as in a restaurant you are tempted with a starter: some nibbles (Goat’s cheese from Neal Yard’s Creamery?) and drinks from cider to cocktails. Finally you make your way through the leafy archway into the street food arena….

Haystack seating

There’s plenty of seating for all the family from haystacks to sofas!

Keg & Cork Bar

The outdoor dining areas had a wonderful communal feel and many visitors from outside our county had come over for Bank Holiday weekend.

I really wished I’d gotten The Chefs supper tickets at the Bookshop. Also I didn’t get around to staying on into the night so missed the music acts!

King Street Kitchen Team

As I have such a sweet tooth my first stop was at the King Street Kitchen stall where I purchased a salted pistachio brownie (made with coconut flour) and tried the gigantic chocolate, caramel and pretzel cake which was divine!

The Beefy Boys Stall

It was absolutely jam-packed and the unusually rainy weather couldn’t deter us from this gourmet gathering. All in all an excellently executed collection of music, food, fresh produce and creativity. It was a pleasure to be in attendance this year and I look forward to returning again next year!
