Devizes 1940's Dinner at the Bistro (2018)


We're taking you back in time to a night in 1940's War-time Devizes when people were listening to the music of Glenn Miller and the town played an incredibly important role, the site of a German POW camp and the home of the Wiltshire regiment. This is the era when Salisbury plain became a designated troop training area.

It seems a good time to celebrate the sort of food being enjoyed at the time,
 even at the height of rationing, when eating locally and in season was the only option.

Why don't you dress up for the occasion?
Wear your best austerity glad rags
Listen to 1940's Lindyhop music and
Feast like the locals did on :

Homemade bread 
Bacon pudding
Corn beef hash
Steamed sponge pudding
and more...
 
(There will be plenty for vegetarians and gluten-free guests)
