Food and drink week in Wesbourne - Foodie Heaven

PUBLISHED: 14:56 27 May 2015 | UPDATED: 14:56 27 May 2015


Westbourne Urban Village hosts a dedicated food and drink week, starting on Monday 8 June showcasing the unique and diverse selection of food and drink available in this much loved destination for foodies.

‘Foodie Heaven’ is funded by the Westbourne Coastal BID businesses and is a result of market research carried out last year by the Bournemouth Coastal BID which found that 23% of visitors came to Westbourne for Grocery and 13% for eating and drinking.

This thriving urban village is proud to boast nearly 50 venues where visitors can dine, snack or drink. An increasingly popular hub for diners during the day and evening, Westbourne’s unique appeal has attracted an ever growing and varied number of restaurants, bars, delicatessens, off licences, cafés and food stores.

During the week participating businesses will be enticing new and existing customers with special taster menus, tasting sessions, exclusive offers, cooking demonstrations and menus that have been created specifically for this exciting week.

Westbourne Business Association has also teamed up with partners, Heart FM, who will be hosting a competition offering entrants the opportunity to win an amazing food lovers prize package with meals, vouchers and cooking experiences to be included! The competition will be running for two weeks prior to and during the food week.

Westbourne Business Association Chairman, Steve Taylor, enthused: “Westbourne’s food and drink sector is continually developing and we have a superb reputation as a relaxed evening destination which attracts a mix of visitors including both locals and tourists. There really is something for everyone here with our diverse selection of eateries where visitors can enjoy some excellent food.”

Steve continued: “We would urge people to come along and enjoy a few hours in Westbourne and find out just why we have the foodie heaven reputation that we do. There’s even free parking after 6pm at the car park in Milburn Road!”
