Basingstoke’s food and beverage appeal expands with arrival of new dining choices to Festival Place

A taste of Asia is coming to Basingstoke’s Festival Place with the arrival of not one, but two new f&b operators expanding the wide menu of dining choices at the region’s leading retail and leisure destination.
