Had such a nice meal here. The service was brilliant, and the food was amazing. Will definitely be visiting here again.
Great food and personable service. Diverse menu with views over the central market place in historic Salisbury. Good free local parking after 18.00pm. Would definitely recommend.
Nice and cosy place, food was lovely and it seemed to me a reasonable price.Staff was very kind and helpful.I would definitely come back again.
Friendly greeting on arrival. Lovely knowledgeable staff. Excellent food with great service. Love the refurbishment. Excellent atmosphere. Will definitely return. Thank you very much and Merry Christmas.
Was very busy so may have been that but felt service was a little sporadic. Also some members of staff very friendly whilst one or two were a little dismissive. Silly little things like me having to ask for a serving spoon so that I could serve myself the vegetables and staff not offering to pour the wine for us for example, but pouring it for others. These are little things but do, I feel, make the difference between a good restaurant and a really good one. Couple who came in after us were served before us (I had the feeling they were definitely regulars!). Can't complain about the food though as both our meals were very good and for this reason we were more than happy to leave a tip.
Excellent meal as always. Super friendly staff, attentive but not intrusive and knew exactly what was in the food. We had to ring and apologies that we would be very late for our reservation and it was treated as if it was no problem at all. Unexpected pleasure to bump into old friends there!
A great experience! Staff very friendly and the food was excellent. Can definitely recommend the steak. We had a great time and it was a good way to begin the lead up to Christmas !
Very nice lunch and good value for money. I went there with friends on a Saturday and was surprised to find it was very quiet. However we all enjoyed the food and the staff were very good and friendly
We were visiting Salisbury for the first time so it was great to find this lovely restaurant. The food was fantastic and the customer service was excellent. Couldn't fault it.
