The first Taste Salisbury - a ten day celebration of regional food and drink - will be coming to a close this weekend.

Running from August 27 until Sunday (September 5), there is a programme of events, special promotions and discounts held across the city.

Salisbury BID, Experience Salisbury and Salisbury City Council have joined forces to put the festival together.

  • The Old Ale and Coffee House will be offering a World Street Food menu based on their travels abroad

Shane O’Neill, co-owner of the Old Ale House, said: “Sincerely, I think that after the torrid times we have been through it’s really important for people to come together and re-unite. What better way than when sharing food and a drink. When the whole city does it together, then it really means something.”


Showcasing what the city has to offer

Taste Salisbury has offered businesses an opportunity to showcase what they have to offer to local residents and visitors.

Dan Collins, Business Manager for Salisbury BID, said: “Recovery from the coronavirus pandemic will take time but we can all do our bit to help local hospitality venues by getting involved in these events and promotions. As well as offering support to businesses, Taste Salisbury will also bring a festival feel to the city centre – with fun, food and drinks, whatever your taste.”
