I was nervous, my coffee has to be good. I wasn't disappointed, Gingers have a pukka machine
and the coffee is faultless. Home cooked gammon sandwich on locally produced seedy bread with home made chutney, brilliant and panini with black pudding - excellent. Always a pleasant welcome from the owners and staff. The decor is minimalist which is great for oldie worldie Shropshire. Feels really comfortable sitting alone or with friends.. Will keep on going back - especially with my loyalty card!

I've had lunch three times at Ginger & Green's in the last couple of months and each one has been delicious. The focus is on high quality, locally-sourced ingredients prepared with care, offering sandwiches, paninis, salads, platters, soup and cakes as well as a range of speciality coffees, teas and soft drinks. Orders are placed at the counter and the food brought to your table by friendly staff. Service on each of my visits was very good. The sandwiches and paninis that I have tried came with a garnish of dressed salad leaves and 'real' coleslaw.

The interior is bright and fresh with simple furniture and a clean, modern feel. Although slightly below pavement level (there are several steps down inside), the large windows let in plenty of light.

It's the food that counts most though, and my three meals have all been excellent. Recommended.

Let’s be clear. If you are looking for a 12” baguette + iceberg lettuce topped with sliced unripe tomato and soggy cucumber + chips and/or crisps – you won't find it here. In Church Stretton at 2.30 on a weekday afternoon, we just wanted a savoury snack and decent coffee. We walked around – Acorn was closed, Housmans was gloomy and empty, Jemima’s just wasn’t our cup of tea. Standing outside Ginger and Green, the food menu wasn’t that tempting but the bright décor appealed. It is set just below street level (steps down inside) with white walls and two windows making it very light. The menu actually looked a little boring - the sandwich choice was cheddar cheese, ham, tuna or egg. There were also paninis, soup and cakes. If there is one thing the owners perhaps need to do to entice people in for the first time, it’s to rephrase the menu to match the quality of the food. The “cheese sandwich" was in fact tasty grated cheese with pickle on thick slices of Richard C Swift’s delightful artisan soft brown grain bread - served with a small portion of fresh baby salad leaves with just the right amount of tasty dressing and the most delicious coleslaw. My husband had a brie and cranberry panini, served with the same garnish, but the panini was coated in sesame seeds, adding a new twist. The soups too were interesting – carrot and honey, or sweet potato and orange served with yet another Swift speciality bread. The coffee was some of the best we have had in the UK. If I had a niggle, it would be that the plate was a bit too small for my sandwich – not a problem with ham perhaps, but a lot of the grated cheese ended up on the table. (Maybe an oval plate for the sandwiches?) Overall though, an excellent experience and one that we plan to repeat in the very near future. Be aware they do not take cards and they close at 4pm.
