Introducing Artisan Uncovered – John Martin (Spectacular Goat), Jas Sohal (The Drinks Room), Andy Reynolds (Church Farm Brewery), Stephen Burnett (Bread and Co).

The delights of a summer garden in the heart of Warwick, the smell of wood fired pizza cooking and fabulous beverages to wash it all down are being offered later this month as four local companies come together to launch the Artisan Uncovered experience.

Bread and Co in Smith Street, Warwick, is working with wood fired sourdough pizza company Spectacular Goat, their Smith Street neighbours The Drinks Room andChurch Farm Brewery, based on the edge of Warwick, to offer some very special evenings at the end of May.

Artisan UncoveredThe evenings will take place from 5.30pm to 11pm on Thursday, May 29, Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31, in the garden of Bread and Co in Warwick.

Bread and Co owner Stephen Burnett said: “This is four great local businesses combining to create a casual al fresco dining experience not to be missed.

“Our walled garden provides that quintessentially British feel, which will go perfectly with the delicious wood fired pizza and fine selection of ales.”

The evenings will welcome people to stay, or if they choose they can take their pizza and ale away.

The Artisan Uncovered team aim to then make the events a regular event for Warwick
