Description: Small family owned and run tearooms offering morning coffee, light and main lunches and afternoon teas in the summer. Situated next to the military museum in Salisbury's Cathedral Close. Outside seating in summer. Sunday lunches require reservations and our cream teas are exceptional. Voted one of the best value establishments in the UK by Olive Magazine a few years ago.

“Very welcoming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We arrived shortly before closing time but our waitress was very pleasant and friendly and brought our cream teas very quickly. Lovely quirky surroundings, great scones and very good service. Would come here again.

“Fabulous food, friendly atmosphere, fantastic service and first class value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Had lunch here on 11th September with my husband and dad. It was a spur of the moment decision as we were looking for a roast dinner and boy did we get an excellent roast lamb lunch. Beautifully cooked to perfection was the roast lamb accompanied by freshly cooked vegetables and accompaniments of mint sauce and redcurrant jelly.
The bread and butter pudding dessert was out of this world. So light and fluffy, hot and tasty.
An excellent place to eat and very popular. After we had taken our seats there were no seats left inside the restaurant. Would advise booking. A definite return visit will be on the cards when next in Salisbury and we will make sure we book!

“Cosy & friendly with good food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

although it was lunchtime when we called in & it was fairly busy they were happy to just serve us tea & teacakes which were yummy. The diners around us were tucking in to their chosen lunches & we heard several commenting on how tasty the dishes were. We will call back for sure for a proper lunch.

“Delightful tea rooms in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Pretty good value at £5 for a cream tea with two scones. Also plenty of jam and clotted cream....good to see when many places nowadays are so mean with their portion sizes nowadays. Thoroughly recommended.

“Value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Visited with friends on 21June - didn't intend to have lunch in Salisbury but saw the sign board in the Close and chanced our arm. Absolutely first class value. No pretensions but what you get is fresh food, home cooked and good quality at the right price. Friendly service and what a great site. Will become a regular
