Another successful Taste Salisbury

5th September 2022

Taste Salisbury is a roaring success for the second year running!

Taste Salisbury's second year was even more special than the first, with more events and bigger promotions

Following the success of 2021, Salisbury BIDSalisbury City Council and Experience Salisbury worked in collaboration to make sure this year’s celebration is even bigger and better and they certainly were.

From 26th August we saw exclusive offers from names like Pickled Frog, Dinghams and Qudos as well as special menus from Cosy Club, Allium and The Chapter House.

Alongside these mouth watering offers there were tonnes of events on over the 10 days including the Rum and Drum night hosted by Artisan Wine & Spirit Co. outside the Guildhall as well as Fish Row Fest which brought together Mauls Cheese and Wine Bar, Pritchett’s Family Butchers, Premier Fish Limited and Reeve the Baker for an all day tasting event along Fish Row and Butcher Row.

Roly’s Fudge Pantry sold a limited-edition Taste Salisbury Fudge exclusively made for the festival created a gin based fudge in collaboration with the locally based, Downton Distillery. The Boathouse reopened their doors on 31st August celebrating with 10% discount over their opening weekend.

Even non-food venues got involved in Taste Salisbury this year. Muse Hairdressing collaborated with Artisan Wine & Spirit Co. and The Dusty Apron Bakery to offer cocktails and lunch deals with every appointment. And, Casa Fina and Bohemia offered discounts on certain food and drink related homeware.
