    Refrectory Restaurant: Cathedral Visitors Refreshment

    by grandmaR Updated May 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Grandson and daughter at lunch
    1 more image

    We found that there was a restaurant in the visitor's area with a variety of meals, snacks and hot and cold drinks. Open 0930-1730 daily except for Christmas Day

    Favorite Dish: Our lunch was 18 pounds for all 4 of us.

    I had minestrone and a big hard roll and a Pavlova (which I've always wanted to know what one tasted like), our daughter and grandson shared roast chicken, and Bob had an egg mayo and cress sandwich and apple and a Sprite.

    Another good things - the roof was made of glass so that you could look up and see the steeple.

    Driving you Horsy mad

    The Grey Fisher in Salisbury is one of a series of restaurants owned by the Hungry Horse Company. They can be found in Salisbury in Ayleswade Road nr Harnham Road just up from The Rose & Crown hotel, there's a small car park at the front & a much larger one at the back. Inside this pub are things to do with the race course in Salisbury, it's thought to be the oldest one in the area. There's a bar & plenty of seats, there's seating outside as well. You can order a meal at The Grey Fisher, & their big! The menu is varied with a roast on Sundays & the smallest dessert for £1.25. There is the chance to watch Sky Sports or take part in darts; there are also two rest rooms & a place for disabled visitors.

    Favorite Dish: The Sunday roasts are a must; they come with pork, vegetables, apple sauce, yorkshire Pudding, sage & Onion stuffing, or Cranberry covered in gravy. The price is generally £6.49, although they have some deals on. Tuesdays they also have special offers with a dessert included in the price. There is a kids Sunday lunch for £2.99

    When you have a meal, customers get their cutlery & sauces off a small dresser which is just by the bar. You can ask staff to fetch it for you. Feels a bit like being at home in here.

    This is a traditional pub with a simple menu. Originally the building was two sixteenth century cathedral servants' cottages. It is listed in the Good Beer Guide. I had the Wiltshire Lamb Chops and they were very good.

    The Haunch of Venison: Occasionally haunted

    by unexplored Updated Apr 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    An atmospheric pub with panelled walls and oak beams and an interesting range of food.
    During renovation work, a secret alcove was found behind one of the pub's old fireplaces. Inside, workmen were horrified to discover a severed human hand and a yellowed, marked playing card. Perhaps the result of a gruesome justice meted out to a former customer who was caught cheating during a game of cards. The mummified hand is on display in a glass case.

    Old timbered & Worldly

    by LouiseTopp Written Dec 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The front part

    The Cloisters in Ivy Street is one of the most popular pubs in Salisbury, it has a thatched roof & window boxes in the summer. There is a restaurant here with a good menu; the roasts on Sundays cost about £6.75, but there is a choice of other meals. There is only one bar & open fireplaces, meals are ordered at a separate bar. There is a large choice of drinks with Wiltshire beer being one of the names, bands practice here sometimes in the room & there are discos held here on special occasions.

    Favorite Dish: I like the desserts (doesn't anybody?), apple pie & cream is really yummy, so is ice cream Sundea.

    Prezzo is a chain that started in London. Everything we ate here was wonderful. We even came back with our train pass from another location just to have our evening meal here once again.

    Favorite Dish: Tomato Salad with house dressing, Minestrone Soup, Roast Chicken -excellent, as well as a daily special of Spinach Ricatta Calzoni, the pizza looked good also but we never tried it

    The Red Lion Hotel - The "Frothblowers Arms": A New Meaning to the Words PUB GRUB!

    by MarieGutscher Written Nov 1, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I am pretty sure my husband and I hit every pub in downtown Salisbury!
    Not once was I disapointed by the food that was served. Many of them have
    out door areas to sit at and enjoy the fresh air.

    This being said my most memorable pub experience was at The "Frothblowers Arms"
    It had a friendly and relaxing environment with fairly disturbing wall paper but I got over that when the food arrived.

    Favorite Dish: I had a lovely salmon steak with a sauce so wonderful I wanted with all my heart and soul to just pick up the plate and lick it! However, being a lady...ok...behaving as a lady would...I didn't. But holy - insert expletive of your choice here - it was amazing!!!

    Oh right...service was a bit slow...but to have food like that I would have slept on the floor and waited for breakfast!!

    Yummy's? More like Crappies!: Give this a miss

    by LouiseTopp Updated Nov 1, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Opposite the railway station is a Chiniese take away called Yummies, it has red letters written upon a yellow back ground. I have been to some Chiniese takeways in the past and they are very good, my friend works in a Chiniese resturant which has top marks; then we discovered this takeaway.

    Last night we ordered some food because it was on our way home, we waited age's only to be told that we had been forgotten about!!

    We will not be gracing the doorstep of this shop again, and will take our money elsewhere!

    Favorite Dish: Food was bloody awful and we didn't get what we ordered in the end, except probably food poisoning as it was only half cooked due to the fact of them trying to get rid of us in a hurry!

    The Dragon: All you can eat for under £5

    An arial view of Salisbury

    In Fisherton Street in Salisbury is a Chinese restaurant at no 19. Here all through the week from 12.30 until 2pm you can eat as much as you want for £5. The foods so fresh that you can still see it swimming in the tank! The restaurant used to be a modal shop called ‘Futchers’ which had stood along Fisherton Street for well over 100 years. The used to sell practical jokes & have a photography studio, Mr Futcher retired & the restaurant took over.

    Favorite Dish: Inside the restaurant you can choose your food at a buffet trolley then take it to the tables. The menu ranges from Chicken fried rice or noodles, mixed vegetable, soup for starters, Sweet & sour pork chops in a sauce, dessert is usually ice-cream. The sweet & sour sauce seems to have a mind of its own & runs everywhere, there’s a ladle to scoop it up with. Drinks are sold separately. It’s so popular that the queue can reach out the door & down the road. On entering there’s a fish tank with carp in cruising about, I said the food was fresh. Inside Chinese music is played softly through speakers; I hope your starving when you visit here 

    Bakers Oven: Nice sandwitches

    by LouiseTopp Written Oct 23, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bakers Oven is in the Maltings. It’s a nice place to get big tuna sandwiches & large cups of tea. The crockery is all orange china, not the kind I would choose but I don’t think they are fussy. There’s inside & outside seating. The outside seating is of metal chairs with wobbly tables, no one sits out side when it’s raining. Inside you can take away food or order at the counter, there’s a range of cakes & buns on offer, the sandwich’s are in a fridge behind you on entering. Music softly plays, it’s usually Spire FM. There is a rest room at the back & this café can be accessed by the disabled or pushchairs. Avoid coming on a Tuesday 7 Saturday as this is market day, & can get very busy.

    Favorite Dish: The cappuccino buns are nice, although they can be a bit crummy. At Christmas they have lovely mince pies & cakes. There’s also chicken sandwiches & baguettes, you should try the cooked meals on offer.

    The Cornmarket Inn: Excitment & relaxed air

    by LouiseTopp Updated Apr 27, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Cornmarket Inn

    The Cornmarket as this inn is known is in The Market Square in Salisbury at 29-32 Cheesemarket. The Cheesemarket was where all the cheeses used to be sold when the market was on every Tues & Sat; my uncle once told me a story about how all the stray dogs used to lift their legs over the cheeses that were on display on the floor! The Inn was once part of the market House & has had many redevelopments; it has 8 integral rooms with colour TV, hairdryer, trouser press, alarm, express dial telephone & tea & coffee making services. There is only one bar with an upper level which has a grand piano, played occasionally by a man who comes in. Toilets are upstairs through a set of swing doors.

    Update: I've heard there's a ghost in the gents toilet.

    Favorite Dish: You can get a bowlful of chips here for £1.99, the hot chocolate is nice. Dining is from 12-10pm, you order at the bar & they'll bring it to you.

    Bishops Mill: Nightclub, or pub for louts?

    by LouiseTopp Updated Oct 23, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Maltings

    Bishops Mill overlooks the River Avon & was once a Malt Mill here built on the site of a much older building. There has been a lot of renovations, this picture was taken during the day but at night it's always illuminated by different coloured light?s. There is DG music here Saturday night?s, but it can get a bit crowded with teenagers who are rude to one another. I?m afraid the staff aren?t very considerate; if you order food here it takes the rest of the evening for it to turn up. There is outdoor seating which is popular during the summer with wooden benches to sit at, though your not allowed picnics etc.

    Favorite Dish: Just see the menu there if you go.

    The Haunch of Venison: A very handy place

    by LouiseTopp Updated Oct 23, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Haunch

    The Haunch of Venison in Queen St has seen a lot of history over the years, it was a brothel in the 13th Century, & houses a genuine hand which was sliced off a cheating gambler by a butcher while playing cards. The Bee-Gee?s have stayed there, & one of them witnessed something very strange indeed. There is a woman who haunts the building, she lost her baby & she is buried in St Thomas?s churchyard at the back, she is detected always by the smell of fresh earth. On entering the building there is a pong of old wood, there?s also an open fireplace & restaurant upstairs.

    Favorite Dish: See the menu.
