It’s less than a few weeks until the Meraki Festival is upon as again, and it’s not just the line-up of artists but also the menagerie of different food vendors and pop-up bars that looks delicious.
These are a selection of the eating and drinking opportunities available over the weekend of August 10-12:
The Big Red Bus Bar
A fully-functioning bar inside of a double-decker bus? It’s more likely than you think. Run out of a refurbished 1967 London Routemaster, the family-run Big Red Bus Bar will be serving quality real ales, lagers and ciders alongside a full bar range of Prosecco, wines and sprits. Let’s just hope that no one getting on is driving!
