Opened in April 2008 and now employing 35 people, Battlefield 1403 is a range of traditional farm buildings on the Albrighton Estate.
Here you’ll find a range of locally produced foods at the farm shop and butchery, plus there’s a cafe, battlefield exhibition and falconry centre.
The beef and lamb is reared here on the farm, and when there is a gap in supply it is sourced from local farmers who rear meat that is as similar as possible to our own. In the summer months, the cattle and sheep can be seen up close, grazing in paddocks surrounding the buildings.
In the farm shop, you’ll find a range of excellent foods which are sourced locally. They have low food miles, full traceability and great taste. Seasonality, freshness and high standards of production are important to us.
Hot food at Sparrow’s Cafe is available until 4.30pm everyday (Sundays 3.30pm) but for refreshments, the café is open a little longer. A new menu is provided at different times of the year to utilise seasonal produce but the firm favourites such as Battlefield Beef and Shropshire Ale Pie, are always available! These changes in menu are also reflected in the range of ready meals prepared for sale in the shop. Most of the seating area is easily accessible by wheelchair but we suggest you call us to book a table should you require one on the ground floor. Otherwise there is no need to book unless your party is of more than ten people.
The Battlefield Deli was launched September 2010 and has since built a strong reputation for selling both locally produced cheeses and charcuterie, and others from further afield. In fact it was listed in the Independent newspapers’ top 50 Best Delicatessens supplement (26/02/11).
A falconry centre is also on site (open 7 days a week) where children can meet Barn Owls, European Eagle Owls, a Steppe Eagle, Harris Hawks, and much much more. Entry is £4.00 for adults and £2.00 for children. You can also buy a family ticket (2 Adults and 2 Children) for £10.00.
With events throughout the year, Battlefield 1403 provides a relaxed & popular visitor destination where everyone feels welcome.
