In celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Wilding have introduced a Cream Tea Martini to their exciting bar menu. The new cocktail will be available for the whole of June and costs £10. It can also be enjoyed for £7 between 5-7pm on weekdays, making it the perfect drink to kick off the Jubilee Weekend on the Thursday and Friday Bank Holidays.

This Jubilee Cocktail is a take on the traditional afternoon tea of cream tea and scones; full of the flavours of British summertime with an alcoholic twist. Enjoy refreshing fruit flavours of strawberry and citrus with a creamy hit of Black Cow Vodka and some uplifting bubbles from Exton Park English Sparkling.

Salisbury Journal:

The Cream Tea Martini was created by general manager Dave Tregenza, who designs the cocktail menu at Wilding. Having previously run two bars in London, which regularly featured in Timeout’s Top 50, as well as Wilding’s sister venue Eight Stony Street, Dave knows how to create a truly spectacular cocktail and he has pulled out all the stops for the Jubilee Weekend celebrations in Salisbury.

Salisbury Journal:

He had this to say about the new cocktail: “This is a taste of British summertime and was royally fun to create in honour of our Lizzy reaching 70 years on the throne. I was really glad to create something so delicious for the epic Bank Holiday weekend, especially as I was able to incorporate some amazing British suppliers. Black Cow Vodka is made in West Dorset using what is left over from grass-grazed cows milk after making cheese - the world’s first Pure Milk Vodka! And Exton Park whose English Sparkling wine is made in neighbouring Hampshire and is absolutely world class. Hope to see you in Wilding this June!”

With the Old George Mall putting on some fun family entertainment next door, and with the many street party celebrations going on, the centre of Salisbury is set to be more bustling than ever. Wilding is therefore one of the best spots to celebrate with its large terrace on the High Street that is perfect for watching the world go by with views of Salisbury Cathedral and bunting-clad buildings. Whether celebrating in the sun or in the beautiful space inside, Wilding is a fun place that caters to all.

Salisbury Journal:

Come for the cocktail, stay for the incredible food and wine! With 40 wines by the glass, 10 on tap, eight fine wines on a special dispense system and over 250 selected bottles available to purchase from the wine shop (and to drink in house with corkage), there is a vast array of wines to choose from and discover.

Salisbury Journal: When it comes to the food, expect unassuming dishes that display a love for ingredients and the homemade, split into Nibbles, Sharing Boards, Small Plates and From The Grill. Not forgetting their delicious Desserts and fun Aperitivo pairings.

Their signature dishes are the Butcher’s Cut, Market Fish and Cheesecake which change daily. In fact all their dishes change regularly and with the seasons. But what you get every time is simple, honest cooking that celebrates local, sustainable and passionate producers, many of whom are on the Wilding doorstep and are environmentally-responsible, such as Nunton Farm, White Horse Microgreens and The Real Cure.
