Website updates

I have now finished a two-day marathon of website updates, that has seen me make minor and not so minor changes to nearly every page on the site. I have also increased the linking between pages, posted a new testimonial, embedded a google map and clarified some of the text. Any comments? Please let me know!

Salisbury Scrutineer

For followers of Salisbury life, and interesting places to eat, drink, and live, I am pleased to announce that the Salisbury Scrutineer is back up and running, with two posts today from the latest guest!

Set up by my good friends Tom and Tehm it is well worth a look. We hope to add more guest autors in the coming months so if you have something to say about Salisbury feel free to email me for consideration.

Out and about dates for your diary

Well, it would be fair to say the Zil135 trip mentioned in my last post was not a resounding success: 1.5 hours sleep in 36, many miles driven and no truck collected because it had broken down. Buy me a pint sometime and I'll tell you all about it, or else have a look on in the gallery for pictures of the beast.

Back to the website: I have updated the front page with 3 dates for your diaries when we are out and about rather than being stuck in the shop. 2 of the dates have offers connected with them - basically email me your address with the key phrase (on the home page) and receive either a free pint or a discount against some food. Can't be bad.

There will hopefully be a new shopping site in the next couple of months: CSY who make our EPoS system are working on an extension to the software that allows e-commerce with the product database driven from the database we use everyday in the shop for over-the-counter sales. I have been asking for this for the last four years, so it is nice to now see the finished product nearly ready. The demonstration site is at if you are interested.
