A lovely old fashioned dining room with comparable quality service. Our food was excellent and washed down with a very nice bottle of red.

Having dined here before, my wife and I opted to have dinner at the Squires during our recent stay. As expected the experience was fantastic. Our steaks were perfect, just how we ordered.The service was great and the staff very attentive. Joseph the restaurant manager went the extra mile to ensure our satisfaction and we returned the next evening for... More

We have been lunching in the restaurant for many years only to be told that except for two days a week it would closed and lunches served the lounge and bar areas. Not only that but the set lunch had been dropped altogether. We ended up squatting at a coffee table eating our lunch which was less comfortable than an... More

Serving an excellent breakfast, including a cooked to order full English breakfast together with fruit, cheese, meats continental cold breakfast. Meals served in bar areas all day. Lunch and evening meals are highly traditional and were excellent. The set menu was excellent value although it would benefit from some additional choices for guests staying longer than a few days.

Prepaid dinner with our stay in the hotel. Set menu but choice was good and the food was excellent (and great service as well). Lovely room with lots of windows and light.

Loved the food and the service. Friendly and efficient. Used the gourmet society card for the first time and there was not problems and just applied to the bill. Only downside was that the main dining room was being used for a function so we were in the breakfast room so lacked atmosphere, but the quality of the food totally... More

I ate at the Squires Restaurant while staying at the White Hart Inn. It was actually in a different room than normal because of a conference, so few people were there. However, the service was excellent. The first course of pan seared scallops was delicious; the main course of sea bream less so. While the fish was good, it was... More

I'm glad I didn't read any reviews beforehand as I probably wouldn't have gone. The service was nothing short of excellent. We arrived at 8.30pm on a Friday evening and were looked after very well. I don't recognise the pictures in the photos above so it has clearly been refurbished. All three courses were gorgeous and we were very glad... More

We have occasionally popped into the White Hart for lunch as its a calm environment from the mayhem and noise of Salisbury, always had the most excellent lunch. However on Thursday 17th October, and after a fairly awful procedure at the Odstock Hospital, my husband decided to take me into the White Hart to sit calmly and have lunch. We... More

Description
Behind the imposing 17th-century portico of the White Hart Hotel, Squires is an elegant traditional restaurant in the centre of the cathedral city of Salisbury. Renowned for its gutsy British cuisine, the kitchen uses seasonal local ingredients to produce hearty dishes such as braised oxtail with rosemary or roast leg of English lamb, with a hot and cold buffet at lunchtime. The cosy window tables offer views over the attractive enclosed courtyard.
