Subscriber offer: 5% off your bill at Wilding restaurants!

I HAVE just come back from a great evening with my friend Nick Barker, who owns the excellent Wilding restaurant group. Because he’s such a fool nice man, he has kindly offered 5% off the bills of all those who mention Walt’s World when they book! To take advantage, simply enter 'Walt's World’ in the notes when booking.

Current locations are in Oxford, Salisbury, and Frome – but do look out for more openings in the very near future.

Although I only had some snacks and tapas this evening – including charred padron peppers, arancini with (what I describe as) arty mushy peas, focaccia with wild garlic pesto, and an exquisite charcuterie platter with pickled veg – I know from previous experience that the mains and the sourdough pizzas are also really great.

Wilding is a pukka vintner as well, and each location has a fantastic selection of wines all personally sourced by Nick.

[Full disclosure: I paid my way this evening, but Nick is a fool friend.]
