the sourced story

the c connection

four brothers

We are four brothers (SONS); Reuben, Adam, Ben and Josh, surname Crouch (C). We founded our first restaurant (CSONS Shrewsbury) back in 2015. Our passion for food has been with us since our early years when Dad’s work took us all over the world and we experienced the excitement and diversity of global food and drink. Since then, we’ve all followed our own journey through the world of food and CSONS is the culmination of over half a century of combined experience.

Back in the day all four of us racked up time with some of the countries biggest names in pizza including Pizza Express, ASK and Zizzi. We've taken what we learnt working at these big chains and put our own spin on sourCed by doing what we do best: focussing on the quality and provenance of our ingredients and prioritising a good time for all.

We put in the effort to source the best ingredients we can from all our amazing local and British suppliers which in turn supports smaller independent businesses just like us.  You won't find big brands in sourCed, just some seriously tasty pizza and a happy, super friendly team.  We want you to leave with a big smile and a full belly!



We were recommended by a friend with family in Ludlow. This felt like a hidden gem. Thin base sourdough pizza with a range of interesting toppings and sides. We loved it - Roll over Italy you've been outdone! Great range of wines and beers to compliment. - Chris P from Manchester on Tripadviser.


Superb Pizza house. By far the best and tastiest pizzas we have tried. Gem of a restaurant with excellent service.

The Ortizan is delicious. This is lovely modern pizzeria in a charming cobbled mews. The ingredients are high quality and full of flavour, especially the mushrooms. Tasty local Perry, and a divine chocolate mousse cake.

Absolutely delicious pizza and friendly service. We ate here this evening and we were absolutely bowled over by the pizzas. They were honestly the best pizzas I’ve ever had. Really tasty and absolutely piping hot. The kids were well catered for and the service was super friendly. A great find. Really recommended.

I have tried loads of pizzas around the world. Italian, Argentinian, American. I can say, this is (by far), among the top 3 - worldwide. Incredible flavour. Fully recomended. I actually asked the service lady, to visit the kitchen and see how is all done. Congratulations to the owners and workers of sourCed pizza, for having achieved such a great product. It is worth deviating to Ludlow, just to eat at your pizzeria. Fantastico. Bravo.
