William Sitwell said:

“Wiveliscombe has some seriously good places to eat and at our first ever “REST FEST” (Restaurant Festival) guests will have the opportunity to dine at them all in one night! Our inaugural event will include the celebrated Zekki, establishment of Cypriot chef Tim Zekki, The White Hart, with its traditional British food, The Bear, a seriously proper British pub, Taste of India – the town’s much-loved curry house and the wonderful and diminutive wholefood, deli and takeaway that is Phoenix Kitchen.”

Guests will meet at the Town Hall at 6pm for welcome drinks, snacks from Taste of India, and speeches before being escorted in groups to the town's dining venues. You'll get a chance to sample the sharing plates at Zekki, locally sourced food of the White Hart, paella and more at The Bear, and some delicious desserts of the Phoenix Kitchen.  Guests will be given a bespoke and keepsake glass for their rosé, white and red wine and will have the chance to sample the five new beers being brewed on the premises at The Bear.

Tickets, which are limited include multiple courses, rosé, white and red wine and beer.  They are just £80 per person.
