Here’s a little selection of this week’s best outdoor eateries for you all to celebrate our short stint of sunshine with some proper top quality local nosh.
Deal 1: 2 Pints of Proper Cider + 1 Rustic Sharing Platter @ The Apple
On Wriggle: £10
When? Monday, Wednesday, Thursday (5-9pm)
About: Sip on a pair of the best ciders known to this side of Somerset at an incomparable sun-drenched waterside location. And whilst you’re at it, share a few generous hunks of cheese / fresh, mixed olives / bunches of green & pink grapes / life-changing chutneys (chilli, spiced beetroot, their signature “perfect ploughmans” pickle) / more than enough crackers to go around.
Deal 2: Any 9″ Stonebaked Pizza @ Under the Stars
On Wriggle: £5
When? Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday (12-3pm)
About: Grab a slice of the Under the Stars action with one of their stonebaked pizzas on their top deck. They’ve got a great selection of toppings – veggie, meaty and fishy too – so say no to Sainsbury’s mid-day meal deal and make your lunch break both a culinary and nautical adventure.
Deal 3: Hearty Soup & Sandwich @ Hope & Anchor
On Wriggle: £4
When? Wednesday, Thursday (12-2pm)
About: Lounge in the Hope and Anchor’s exquisite beer garden with a summery soup of the day and a hearty sandwich (choose from: B.L.T or Cheddar, Pickle and Spring Onion Sandwich on Granary or White Bloomer.)

We’re pretty sure you won’t find a better lunchtime bite this close to the water – a definite Wriggle team fave (especially with a jug of freedom beer)
