The Fiddler's Elbow &
The Sun Inn, Leintwardine

Leintwardine's fish and chip shop cooks not only fish but also chicken, vegetarian and vegan food. You can't eat in but order your food online and you can take it to...

The Sun Inn next door, one of only eight alehouses left in the UK. It doesn't serve food but you can take your fish and chips there. Be sure to look into the old parlour on the left of the door, and the original public bar on the right. These rooms formed the original pub before the rear extension was built in 2010
