Insta-worthy places to eat

Now we're all going out, naturally we want to shout about it. Be the envy of your followers at these photogenic local hotspots where the backdrop is as good as the food.

The Bradley Hare Maiden Bradley

This relatively new addition to the Wilts food scene is upping the design bar – it’s exquisite-looking and will have you reaching for your phone before you can say Farrow & Ball. James Thurstan, ex-Design Director for Soho House, is responsible for the interiors.

The Bunch of Grapes Bradford-on-avon

You won’t get out of Muddy awards Best Restaurant without a few snaps, whether it’s the design detail or the fancy food. Georgian proportions, French marble tables, contemporary lighting, black woodwork, that blue all make us very happy even before the cocktails come out.

Pythouse Kitchen Garden Tisbury

Just take a look at this beauty. The indoor-outdoor cool rural conservatory vibe, mis-matched vintage furniture and flowers from the garden just outside – it’s all made for your feed.

Tinga Salisbury

The vibrant colours and enveloping greenery of this popular Mexican restaurant are crying out to be shared, and that’s before you get to the tacos and tequila.

Herbs & Wild Wilton

This carefully curated cafe at The Guild has a massive canvas marquee, stripy deck-chairs, fresh flowers (often edible ones decorating your food). It’s an insta-fest, and the food’s great too.

The King John Inn

Stylish and classic, this South Wilts pub has a pleasingly sober interior. The natural materials – bare wood and a dreamy stone floor give out an earthy kind of warmth.

The Methuen Arms Corsham

Winner of Best Boutique Stay at the Muddy Awards, it’s also a top pub and restaurant. You’re spoilt for choice in this period coaching inn – loads of picture-perfect cosy pub rooms, a massive terrace complete with sheepskins, funky lighting and a pretty kitchen garden.

Rudloe Arms Corsham

Marco Pierre White’s rural hotel and restaurant is certainly one for the showy ‘gram feed. All manor of bonkers accessories combined with celeb photos make for a Rock Star-takes-over-country-house vibe.

Timbrell’s Yard, Bradford-on-avon

Timbrell’s photographs well from many angles, so take your pick from the waterside view, the on-trend bar, the airy restaurant or the cosy terrace with wood-burning stove. The food is pretty too – just try to remember to snap before you tuck in…
