You know that feeling: You have got people coming from out of the county and they have always been a bit sniffy about Wiltshire. You just want to show them they can get a plateful of delicious food here that’s better than anywhere near where they live. Or this feeling: You have had a hectic week, the fridge is looking woefully bereft and you’ve barely got the energy to wave a whisk at an omelette. All you want is something comforting placed in front of you somewhere welcoming – preferably with a nice glass of wine. Behold this guide! Historic buildings and gorgeous country inns, all making the most of produce sourced on their doorstep and beers brewed a bar towel’s throw away. They are also businesses supporting their communities, employees and suppliers that are still hurtling up and down a rollercoaster of economic uncertainty. First the pandemic, now the fuel crisis and who knows what’s next? They need our support more than ever.
