Zizzi Salisbury Re-Opening November 2018

Diners were invited to 'pay what they feel' for their food as the Castle Street restaurant re-opened this week.

The first day of Zizzi's reincarnation saw plenty of people going along to see how the restaurant had been refurbished following an eight month closure.

To mark the occasion, visitors were told they could hand over as money as they liked for their meal.

The money raised on the night is being donated to the Salisbury Mayor's Appeal for this year.

Diners gave a total of £3,100 to the cause.

That money will go towards the Rose Gale Trust and Children's Chance, both Salisbury based charities which support young people around the city.

200 tables of diners went in to the restaurant throughout the course of the day.

Manager Joe Pegg has told Spire FM the feedback to their re-opening from customers has been overwhelmingly positive,

The kitchen area of the restaurant is among the areas that's been refurbished

New furniture, redecorating and a fresh menu's been brought in to try and bring a sense of normality back to the area.

There's even some Salisbury specific features, like a neon light saying Zizzi Loves Salisbury.

'Paper doves' painted on the walls replicate the origami birds that sprung up around the city in the wake of the nerve agent incident.

And the re-opening has proven popular on social media too:
