Read our guide below highlighting the best days out this summer in the Midlands. These top visitor attractions care about the food they serve and hold a Food for Life Served Here award. We would love it if you shared snaps from your day out with us on twitter using #EatWellOut.


 RSPB  RSPB Sherwood Forest

A landmark thousands of years in the making, alive with nature, history and folklore, Sherwood Forest is all yours to explore. Their bread is provided by Atherley’s Bakers, just 8 miles from Sherwood and based in the same premises since 1936. Their freshly-baked baguettes are used for the all-day breakfast bap, filled with British Red Tractor bacon, free range eggs, Langford’s sausages and fresh tomatoes from Hallams grocer. August 5-11 sees the 35th Robin Hood Festival when Sherwood welcomes 40,000 visitors hungry for medieval fun and entertainment – not to mention delicious, freshly-prepared food!

 Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust  

Shakespeare’s Birthplace Trust

Shakespeare Birthplace Trust are leading the way on provenance, sourcing and home cooking. They rear their own rare-breed animals on Mary Arden's Farm which are organic, they source free-range eggs and organic milk from the Midlands, the bread is hand-crafted and the orchards provide fruit for recipes whilst the herbs are all grown on-site. There are four sites to visit with the Food for Life Served Here gold award - The Shakespeare Centre, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Mary Arden’s Farm and Hall’s croft.

Visit the Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust website.
