For a small town, Bromyard is remarkably well served. The main shopping street is in two parts – the first half is Broad Street, the second half High Street. Street parking in the centre is restricted to one hour, but there are two pay and display car parks: one on the Tenbury Road, and the other rather well hidden behind the Heritage Centre in Church Lane.
- The big supermarket, a Co-op, is on the Tenbury Road (B4214).
- Post Office: in Church Street, by the zebra crossing
- We have two family butchers, two bakers, an ironmonger, a greengrocer (who also sells ironmongery and equine supplies), a pharmacy, two smaller supermarkets, one in the High Street and one at the petrol station, and a wide range of small businesses.
There are 3 Chinese takeaways, 2 Indian restaurant/takeaways and a good supply of cafes and pubs.
Conquest Theatre, by the Co-op on the Tenbury Road, is a 155 seat community theatre. It hosts its own amateur company, touring productions, live music, films, and live relays from Stratford, Royal Opera etc. There is an active youth theatre group, and a Saturday coffee morning. https://conquest-theatre.co.uk/ 01885 488 575
