Pea Green Cafe Supper Solutions Specials

Well what a week that was. Hope you have survived the extreme heat that seemed to take over everyone’s thoughts, actions and behaviours last week. One of the great things about our Red Room dining area is that it faces north and is encased in solid brick and stone walls. It remains relatively cool even in the high summer, so if it’s tranquility and cool you are looking for, we have it here. Indoors or out. 
This week’s special menu is below, tasty, fresh, unique and highly recommended. This is of course in addition to our regular extensive men. Home delivery, eat in the cafe or on the beautiful riverside terrace, described here:

The location is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest where it forms the South-Eastern corner stone of the Conservation Area of the historic market town of Ludlow.  When looking at the river Teme from the Tea Garden of the Pea Green Cafe; what one  sees today is not so much the natural river, but rather a millpond caused by the Casemill weir downstream. The river, in the summer months, would naturally be approximately 60cm deep. It is deeper than that now due to river dredging carried out in the late sixties.  In the 1960s a storm drain was installed on the site to alleviate pressure and flooding at the plant in Steventon. During the installation, Roman Engineering work was discovered that made up the landing point of the Ford.  The river Teme was forded here to take advantage of a natural slope on the opposite bank that would allow cattle and carts access to the Hogs back of land that forks one way to Wigmore with the other fork leading to Leominster and on to Kington.  Kington is significant to the site as it is the oldest known Celtic Royal Court in England.  This main North South route would have used the ford as the most convenient crossing point of the Teme and was probably well established long before the Romans conquered Britain in 45 A.D.  This early history has a bearing on the property, as the site was developed to exploit the typology geology.  The ford dictated the layout of Old Street, as can be seen from the driveway of the Pea Green Cafe.  A Saxon boathouse was located next door which would have been needed for large parts of the year when the river levels rose. The normal level of the River in average weather conditions is between 0.92m and 1.33m.

Super Supper Solutions Specials & up to date on property’s history

Summery specials on our menu today, see below for details. Available for lunch in the cafe, or delivered home for lunch or supper. If you would like to come to the cafe for lunch I suggest you phone us first to guarantee you a table. The riverside terrace provides a beautiful and tranquil setting for refreshment. We have the added bonus of being a little off the beaten track and away from the crowded streets of the town centre.

And following on from last week, this brings you up to date with theproperty:-
The site is outside of the town walls, and due to its history in relation to a small wealthy town, it was beyond the pale and the area never became fashionable. The property has seen a steady decline since the1800s, being variously lodgings and a public house. In 1872 it was known as the Bay House and prior to that the Hand and Shears and would regularly house 17 lodgers.  In the 1920s it was known as Rams Boarding House for Gentlemen of the Road. The Mittons purchased it in 1959 and it became a dairy and milk delivery business. Mr Clarke bought from them in 1978 and it became the Riverside Guest House and a taxi business. The present owners bought it in 1987 and it has been a family home until October 2016 when it started operations as Pea Green Cafe.

The plan below was drawn by Thomas Telford in 1805 and has Old Street marked as “Old Mill Street” and describes this property as “Old building partly brick partly timber covered with tiles”.

Cafe & Delivery Specials, and more about the property’s history.

Hello,
Please see below for the special menu for today. Some delicious freshly cooked creations to tickle your palette. Delivered to your home for lunch or supper from Tuesday to Saturday. Served in the cafe or our beautiful riverside terrace with its unique view of the river Teme, for Lunch. We open at 10AM and serve a selection of breakfasts until 11.30, lunch is served from 12.00. If you are intending to come to us for a meal, we strongly suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Continuing on from last week… In 1773 the site was owned by Thomas Morley, a butcher.  The site would have a plentiful supply of water which is needed for both the slaughter process and lairage of stock prior to slaughter.  On marrying Phoebe Lodge with the consent of her guardians, it is believed that she had the money to allow the development of the North elevation as it is seen today.  This marks the property’s grandest period.  Within the property it is possible to see where the Medieval Timber Frame was reused in the conversion to form the roof and the central spine of the property.  As was customary at that time the sitting room was located on the first floor on the left of the building. This was a large room running from front to back and was lined with oak panels which were later used to divide the room when it became used as a lodging house.

Delivery & Cafe specials, and a little more history about the cafe.

A spicy selection of specials for this week, see below for the menu on offer in addition to our regular extensive menu. This is available for lunch and supper deliveries and for lunch service in the cafe. Weather looks a bit changeable this week so if you’re thinking of coming down for a meal remember you can book the Red Room for indoor dining as well as the beautiful garden area. If you’re looking for a relaxing place for refreshment, you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere more tranquil than our riverside terrace.

Continuing on from last week a bit more about the property
By 1695 milling operations had moved upstream leaving the site to be individually owned and used as dwelling by William Deverall who was a billeting officer for the victorious parliamentary army (probably not too popular in Royalist Ludlow).  He used the property to billet 5 wounded soldiers.  This is the earliest record of the site being used as lodgings.  This would be a common use for the property over the next 300 years, but not exclusively.  The layout of the floor plan of the main building is simple and consists basically of a room on either side of a centrally-placed entrance hall from which the stairs rise.  The doorway at the rear suggests a medieval layout.  The ground floor pattern is repeated on the first floor.

Pea Green Cafe & Supper Solutions Specials

Some delicious offerings to augment our regular extensive menu. See below for details. We serve these in our cafe for lunch, or in our riverside garden with its beautiful view of the river Teme or if you can’t make it here in person then we can deliver them to your home for lunch or supper. If you would like to come to us for lunch, I strongly recommend you phone us 1st to book a table, either in the garden or our new dining area inside (known as The Red Room). We are open for breakfast from 10AM and lunch is served from 12 to 2pm.

Here is a little bit of information about the space below our RED ROOM dining area
“The property in its earliest recorded history is part of the holdings of the Holdgate Manor in the vale of Corvedale. When the town of Ludlow came into existence this area was known as Holdgate Fee.  Unrecorded history would suggest that the earliest part of the developed site is the undercroft that was used as a guard post monitoring the old ford.  This may have been linked to the defence of the palace of Wild Edrick located near Overton. “The term undercroft as applied to underground or semi-underground chambers was usually thought of in terms of stone medieval vaulted enclosures, but is now used more freely although still in a medieval context”. (M. Moran 2003) The undercroft is totally underground, not vaulted but very spacious and the quality of the stonework suggests that it pre-dates the upper structure perhaps by as much as 800 years.  The stones, particularly in the lower levels, have been carefully chosen and dressed to be laid in courses”

Did you know that the area below our tea garden is a site of specific scientific interest? It certainly is a great place to view the abundance of nature, particularly this time of year. It is also a very peaceful location away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre, great for meeting up with friends or family. The building was at one time a mill, the mill race was originally formed by a natural outcrop of rock that dissected the river. In 1618 there was a “crab mill” here, so called because it is sideways on to the flow of the river to catch the diverted water.

Supper Solutions Specials

Good Morning,
We’re taking an oriental turn with the specials this week. See the menu below for details of our delicious unique and appetising offerings. Available to have delivered to you for lunch or evening meal. Also available for lunch in the riverside garden or on an inside table if the weather’s anything like it has been so far this May! I seem to remember seeing a statistic that reported April 2021 being the driest on record, I wonder how May will compare with previous years both for rainfall and cold?

Looking ahead to this week’s forecast, things are due to warm up a bit hopefully. Two reasons personally I’d like it to get warmer firstly the obvious, it’s nicer, but secondly all the tender plants that need it to stay above 6 degrees at night are beginning to take over the house, they need to go in the garden! So if the forecasters are right, who knows maybe we shall even have a taste of early summer for the bank holiday weekend. Talking of which we shall keep our regular opening hours for the bank holiday, open on Saturday closed Sunday & Monday. Staying with the theme of holiday a reminder we shall be having a break for the first complete week in June IE closed from 6th to 14th June inclusive.
