Excellently presented good food in superb old restaurant at a reasonable price and looked after by caring attentive staff. Could do with a more extensive wine list too match food

We took a client for dinner after a lecture and were expecting a reasonable standard of food in the Red Lion as we have had before - but probably over a year ago. Two of us had the goats cheese starter and one had the soup of the day. No bread was offered and the butter that came with the roll for the soup was rock hard. The cheese was tacky an stuck to the roof of your mouth. For mains we had the halibut and one had the Thai chicken curry. The halibut was over-cooked and tasteless and full of bones. The curry had a congealed lump in it which presumably was the coconut milk. We didn't complain to avoid embarrassing our client, but the whole experience was truly appalling.

What a lovely place. Very old, discreet and with sympathetically updated areas. The menu was varied and reasonably priced and the goats cheese starter and halibut main course was delicious, well prepared and generous portions. You won't be leaving here feeling you need a sandwich to fill you up afterwards. White linen tablecloths and napkins and pleasant, non-intusive easy-going service.
There's a nice cosy place to sit before your meal and you can eat in the dining rooms or the lounge bar area. Also a lovely courtyard area outside for just drinks providing weather's fine. Would like to visit again and rated 5 * for the all round experience of a very good meal and relaxed experience in a unique, very old establishment.

My new wife and I ate dinner in the Vine Restaurant whilst staying at the Red Lion Hotel last night. We were treated to a delicious four-course meal for astonishingly good value. The waitress Katie was excellent and the dishes the chef prepared were fantastic. I especially recommend the tarte-tatin for starter and my wife recommends the cheese board for dessert. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a great quality meal in Salisbury at an affordable price.
