Local Dining Out Group January Dinner

Wednesday 18th January 2017

Tickets £25 per person

We will be dining at The Yew Tree Inn at Odstock.


This is a really nice, older and more traditional Public House & Restaurant in the more rural setting of Odstock, near Salisbury Hospital. It has always been a popular venue. In 2016 the tenancy was taken over by Emily & Gordon who have worked at The Bat & Ball, The Horse & Groom and
at The Cartwheel. Matt who worked as chef at The Horse & Groom has joined the team. Excellent Beers & Wine choice.
