This was a lovely spot I hadn’t visited before but needed somewhere to meet a friend for lunch outdoors. Staff were outstanding. Veggie food was very good.

Lovely garden setting, excellent meal but a long wait for our food. Possibly too few staff and too little space in kitchen for the number of tables?

Absolutely beautiful! Lovely view, lovely atmosphere.
A bit of pressure on staff as it was so busy and staff were just getting set up again.
Overall a very enjoyable time and great that we could book a table for coffee.

It was so peaceful, organised and the staff were lovely. Great price and there’s lots to choose from on the menu! I really like how you pay when the food is delivered, so that at the end of your meal, you can just go, and you don’t have to wait to pay!
Will definitely be visiting again!!

Lovely outside seating area with beautiful views of the Cathedral, good efficient service by friendly young waiters. The coffee & cheese scone were excellent, it’s good to be back out again, booked again for next week.

We love it here, beautiful surroundings, friendly staff, great food. Just super-busy today as recently reopened after lockdown, so service a little slower than usual.

Always love tis place as a lunch venue in Salisbury, especially out of the tourist season. Great location, super menu. Good selection of bottled beers :) We spend a good couple of hours 'chewing the cud' over good food and drink. But keep it a secret and don't tell your friends.

Food excellent and well presented. Slightly confusing on entry but COVID precautions otherwise good. Wet day so couldn’t enjoy the outside seating which has a terrific view of the cathedral.

Pleasant garden setting with outstanding view of the Cathedral. Tasty, freshly prepared dishes - good choice of meals and drinks. Been three times this summer, which should be a recommendation!

In particular, the apricot tart and coffee and walnut cake were excellent. A main dish of parma ham, figs and blue cheese salad with balsamic vinegar sauce and garlic bread was again excellent.

Lovely lunchtime visit, delightful location with stunning views of the Cathedral and Salisbury museum.

Very busy and the staff were rushed but service was very attentive when necessary.

Plenty of choices on the food and drink menus, particularly pleasing was the selection of quality bottled beers.

A definite recommend.
