We love visiting Ludlow and always include the Food Centre on our trips. The range of food is exceptional, although sometimes the quality of the vegetables is not so good. They make a wonderful, heavy, dark sourdough bread with caraway seeds - a bit like pumpernickel but much lighter - which is heavenly spread with smoked salmon pate or served with soup. I do think though that the prices are too high. I would have liked to do a separate review of the cafe, because it deserves its own site on Tripadvisor. The food here is not the cheapest, but it is all locally produced. We called in for breakfast whilst staying at the Travelodge, and we had very good local bacon sandwiches, with a sauce made at the Food Centre. In the past we have enjoyed lunches here - I would particularly recommend the cheese ploughmans, with 3 local cheeses. If they have Oakleigh Park cheddar and the Cheese With No Name, it really is a wonderful experience. Cafetiere coffee is good, also. As for the staff, I make a point of asking them about the food, and they are always knowledgeable - or if they don't know, they go and ask and come back with the answer. I have never found them to be unfriendly or inefficient. In fact, we visit now to eat at the cafe rather than to buy food at the Food Centre.
