Just returned from a weekend break at this lovely, quirky hotel. We understand that the NEW owners have turned this place around from when it was the Lazy Cow. FOR SURE THEY HAVE !! The restaurant food is just fabulous, as is the breakfast menu. The staff are very professional and welcoming and are determined beyond words to make this... More

We were 2 couples staying here for our 10th Anniversary weekend, looking for something different and we were not disappointed. On arrival and for every minute of our stay Stephanie made us feel as if we were our only guests, and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was straight form the 16th century, with a fantastic large bathroom, plenty... More

When this hotel was the Lazy Cow I stayed regularly as I do business in the area. It was always unique and about as far from corporate in style as you could get but it was not problem-free, especially in the heating and bedding areas. The new management seem to have grasped the issues and are making a great job... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Chapter House while we visited Salisbury for a few days. The hotel was brilliant: a good mix of old and new. The room was a generous size, was full of character while still having a modern feel. However, there were multiple stains on the carpets and what appeared to be nail varnish stains... More

We stopped going to the Lazy Cow, as it got so expensive for the quality of food. We heard it had changed hands so decided to give it a try again. The ambience is great and now the food is reasonably priced we will definately start using the restaurant more often.The staff were polite and welcoming. We will definately go... More

On business I spend a couple of days in Salisbury and needed to be in the center of things. Sometimes you get lucky, and I did. My room was really cozy and comfortable. The hotel which is steeped in the history of the old medieval town is opposite the Cathedral and easy walking distance from of the historic town center... More

When we heard the Lazy Cow was changing hands we were really worried because we were holding our wedding gathering there. However, the new owners have taken on the difficulties left from the previous lot (who left none of our details with them) and have been more accomodating and have put us at ease. They have been really encouraging with... More

I never normally write reviews (i'm just too lazy) but i promised the new landlord i would as it's so well deserved and i want the place to succeed for my own gratification. We've eaten (and just drank) several times in the new Chapter House (used to be the Lazy cow). We have been for Sunday lunch, awesome, burgers, awesome... More
