Here’s a chance to check out the range of great places to eat and drink we have in Wantage and Grove. They’re showcased in a new series of short films that give residents and visitors an insight into the choices available locally.

The short films series for Wantage Town Team follows an earlier “Shop Local” set that focused on independent town centre shops. There are seven short films in the new series – two on eating out, focusing on restaurants, three on pubs and bars, and two on cafés. The films were created by Wantage resident Eloise Rees who has her own films venture, Oxford Digital Films. Wantage Market Town Co-ordinator, Mim Norvell, says: “All the businesses were great fun to work with while making the films, and I’ve already started trying out places I wouldn’t have otherwise visited. We have some real gems!”

The two short films series add to an ongoing Wantage town centre promotional campaign which has already seen publication of a ‘What’s In Store’ guide to shops, and the guide to places to eat, drink and stay.

Wantage town team is part of a town vitality initiative funded by the Vale of White Horse District Council, and supported by Wantage Town Council, Grove Parish Council and Wantage & District Chamber of Commerce through the Wantage Joint Economic Forum (JEF).
