Description: Think Salisbury and you���ll think Solstice ��� not the mid-summer phenomenon beloved of druids but the super chic Bar and Grill at Amesbury���s uber-modern Holiday Inn hotel. Situated only moments from the world famous site of Stonehenge, Solstice is glamorously modern, its sleek interior anything but pre-historic. One wall is shot through with a blaze of glass, providing countryside views in the day and inky black reflections at night, while the rest of the room is bright and spacious, furnished in monochrome and lit by low-hanging chrome lamps. Despite its futuristic styling the atmosphere of the restaurant is cosy and welcoming, thanks in no small part to the professional and friendly staff who ensure your every need is met during your visit, be it a swift lunch or a leisurely dinner. From the elegance and ease of a continental style croissant and cappuccino in the morning to the hearty modern European mains of evening dinners and the comforting familiarity of burgers and steaks, plus the well-stocked bar with its excellent wine list and numerous beers, Solstice is a venue for any occasion.

Delicious English breakfast with everything you can imagine. Fun to see the different meats and beans they eat. Didn't need lunch after all that!

Having visited the Solstice Bar and Grill a couple of times over the last 18 months or so and having been pleasantly surprised by the fayre it had to offer, I thought I would treat the other half to another dinner out and to give myself an opportunity to gather my thoughts and sample their wares for this review.

After travelling through Europe, it was nice to get some British service with food to rival any of the European hotels we went to. We stayed at the hotel and breakfast was done absolutely perfectly too.

We booked a table for 7pm. The friendly waitress recommended the special steak which my husband duly ordered he asked for it to be cooked medium to rare to be told the chef only cooks it rare or medium and could not be messed with! After a discussion my husband asked the waitress to relay his request as the customer... More

Just had an ok sort of lunch at Amesbury holiday inn. Three courses for a set price and all help yourself. Starters very poor selection, choice of soup or melon chunks or some limp salad with a soggy pasta and tuna and some odd rice salad and potato salad. Not nice and fresh as you would hope for. Main course... More

The food was absolutely gorgeous but we were waiting an extremely long time on the first night - I even had to ask when the food was coming party of 5). The second night was a bit better despite having a party of 9 - but I did mention the problems the previous evening when I booked the table.

The bar area is huge and well furnished with soft sofas and easy chairs. Their is a very large, ultra modern, open... More

Dropped by for a Sunday lunch carvery. Pretty pricey £35 meal for 2 with soft drinks but left full. Have come to the conclusion that home Sunday lunches cannot be beaten as there is always something likely to be in error - but soggy roasties are unacceptable. Plus points are that there is a good selection of sides/meats and its... More
