Other stalls included Scozzese wood-fired pizza, Churros Barcelona, Gatehouse Coffee Roasters and Porelli Loop and Scoop, while the Rum Shack provided a Caribbean twist to the opening evening with their resident DJs Samson Sounds.

Sarah Hill from Glasgow said: "I love coming to Paisley for the Food and Drink Festival.

"It’s always a great mix of CAMRA beer, tasty treats and friendly faces. Highlights for me this year were frozen strawberry daiquiris – even if it was raining – and Green Day tribute band ‘Groin Day’ at The Keg Stage & Bar the end of the day.

"I’ll be back next year."
