Railpen has announced the opening of Wilding, an independent café, wine bar and restaurant, at Old George Mall in Salisbury.
The multi award-winning Somerset-based operator has opened its second Wilding restaurant in the former Café Rouge at Old George Mall.
The restaurant is the company’s third overall, sitting alongside sister brand Eight Stony Street, which is based in Frome.
Occupying 3,724 sq ft, Wilding also features a dedicated wine shop where customers can purchase many of the wines on offer in the bar, as well as a café for people to enjoy fresh coffee.
Mahmoud Attia, asset manager at Railpen, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Wilding to Salisbury, and to be supporting the business’ growth. With their many awards, huge selection of wines and reputation for quality food, Wilding adds something special to Old George Mall.”
Kent Barker, founder of Wilding, said: “The location is perfect for us, with Old George Mall the prime retail destination in Salisbury, attracting considerable footfall from Salisbury and the wider catchment area. We look forward to the future here in Salisbury at Old George Mall.”
Railpen, the investment manager for the £35bn Railways Pension Scheme, owns and manages the retail destination known as Old George Mall.
Time Retail acted for Railpen, and Everard Cole represented Wilding.
