Dropped in mid morning on a cold wet Tuesday for Tea and an Almond Croissant. Service was fairly prompt despite the problems the waitress appeared to be having with her ipad for taking the order. I think it took her longer to resolve that issue than serve the tea. The tea was a generous pot for one and the croissant... More

I loved it here - living in Salisbury for years I have never been so thought it was about time we did. We went for an early dinner and it was lovely and run by a family business and on their most busy day of the year they were still friendly. The food menu was simple but tasty and home... More

My husband and I visited for lunch yesterday afternoon. We were greeted with a young man shouting at us over the counter, wanting to know how many people were to be seated. We were then ushered to one table, within five minutes of us sitting down, he then asked us to move to another table just in case a large... More

Stopped for lunch with my husband, unfortunately due to being let down by the chef we had to wait a long time for our order. While waiting we were entertained!!! by a very loud lady on the table next to us who by the end of our lunch we felt we knew her entire family. When our order arrived it... More

searched for somewhere to get a beer and sandwich at lunchtime and this place came up trumps. Freshly made sandwich, reasonable choice of beers, finished off with an excellent espresso and delicious carrot cake. Very pleasant staff as well.

We popped in her for a coffee and cake one Saturday whilst out shopping, I was more than disappointed as the carrot cake looked lovely but it was so dry it felt like sawdust in my mouth. With so many different places to go for coffee and cake in Salisbury we won't be back here.

The inside of the cafe is small, but welcoming. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The size of our meals and even coffees was very generous.

Visited with friends after telling them how good my last visit was. My friends were disappointed with the small roast dinner, they thought it was expensive for what it was and that the meal was not homemade. My sandwich was ok.

Having failed to get served at another cafe we left and came across the Cross Keys. Part of an ancient building, whilst small, it was pleasant and we had a smiley welcome. The coffee was good and the cake tasty so a nice break from shopping.
