Eating & Drinking

If you are cooking your own meals, Presteigne has an excellent greengrocer and fishmonger, a deli selling freshly baked bread, a local butcher, a wine shop and two small supermarkets. As for eating and drinking out, from the local chip shop and Chinese take away, Thai, Moroccan and great pub grub, to more gourmet fair, we have something for every taste. We also have four pubs and an excellent wine bar for a well-deserved drink after your busy, or not so busy, day. We can provide you with more information once you arrive.
