Vicky Etheridge, manager of Discover King’s Lynn who is running the campaign, said: “Our food and drink sector is one of the town’s best assets.“Taste of the Town is just one way to shine a spotlight on it and encourage people to head into town.“The set-price menu option gives the consumer some certainty of price before they head out to eat or drink, something that’s even more important to all of us right now.”
