“This Cafe is now closed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

I will write too much here because it requires a minimum of 100 characters to be allowed so, love it or loath it The West Cornwall Pasty Company has closed its doors forever :(

Sadly our Salisbury branch has indeed now closed. For information, the nearest outlets are Winchester, Chippenham and Newbury.

“Over priced plastic pasties”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you're after a real taste of a Cornish pasty, yes of course go to Cornwall, but with Cornwall in this eateries title you would expect something substantial. Sadly not. I ordered a steak pasty with the member of staff saying 'oh yes thats a good choice'. The condiments were located on top of the hot glass area, I don't know about you but I don't enjoy warm ketchup or mustard...
They tried to flog us a paper cup full of wedges that apparently were on offer...for the price we paid for the pasties you'd have though that they might have included them. There wasn't even a token bit of garden on the plate.
When I cut into my pasty the piece of 'steak' was no longer than my little finger and about as fat as my thumb. Of course I took it back and the manager agreed that it wasn't great and offered a replacement. I played it safe and went for a traditional version. The pastry was dry and there was more veg inside than meat, which was bearly moist.
We paid £4.70 for the 'pleasure', so don't bother coming here go next door to the bakers where you can get a hot pasty for about £2.50, or choose from a whole host of tasty delights.
NOT coming back here!

“Lovely spot for a snack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Was here on a Sunday in May. The staff are very friendly, and the chorizo and chicken pasty was wonderful. the upstairs dining area is a beautiful oasis. Well worth a trip.

“Average but quick”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Was in town and needed a quick bite before an appointment. For a £3.50 and a clean upstairs dining area I can't complain. The staff are ok, friendly and even though the lady picked up the wrong pasty I saw and mentioned it to her. Plate little water stained but lets be fair post West Cornwall Pasty companies are in train stations this was a step up. Nice upstairs dining that was empty at midday. Nice quick lunch in the end. Pasty was warm and a good size for the price.

“Cornish pasty 'mush'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Called in for a quick lunch. Special deal of a pasty & coffee for £4.49. Coffee was lovely. Pasty didnt taste too fresh...the pastry was a tad on the hard side. As for the lamb & mint filling...this tasted and looked like mushy baby food. Not impressed & won't be visiting again
