“A Good find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Charter 1227 has had an exciting history and owner/chef Danny has survived a devastating fire to re-open this comfortable and relaxing restaurant looking out from the first floor on the Salisbury market place. It is worth the slight challenge to find the narrow entrance between Costa coffee and a fish and chip shop, and enter another calm, luxurious and welcoming world. We sampled the light lunch menu which was beautifully served by very efficient and skilled waiting staff. The food was high quality, the presentation was excellent, and only the desserts on this occasion failed slightly to live up to expectation - pleasant but a little over-priced for their content this time perhaps. The rest of the menu and wine list were good value. Certainly this is a place which deserves its high rating in Salisbury, and it is worth rising to the challenge of finding it.

“Good value fine dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Really attentive service despite it being a busy night on a bank holiday weekend. Good quality food, generally more refined than you would expect for the (very reasonable) prices, although at times if verged on being slightly contrived. All in all though, well worth a visit.

“Really achieved a very high standard of cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

This was a great visit. I am always a bit sceptical of the Tripadvisor No1 slot for any restaurant as it usually brings so much pressure with it. That said, and as people who live in Salisbury, we were really impressed on this, our first visit to Charter 1227. Quite under-stated when you first arrive, we found the food to be truly top class. We had the scallop and pork starter and both fish main dishes, which did not disappoint. The staff were very attentive (in a thoroughly good way) and achieved the right level of engagement. It was nice to meet Danny, the Chef, who came out to meet the customers, which is always a good sign. I found the price very reasonable indeed.
