With all the restaurants and cafes listed on the site now I decided to select my favourite places to go to throughout the day, I’ve only selected independents as we all know ( great as they are) what the big brands offer. Walking with a take away coffee in hand seems to be the accessory of choice these days, along with mobile phones of course. So, I road tripped across Salisbury for (not quite) 24 hours of eating and drinking!

Starting with breakfast, unless you’re staying in one of our excellent bed and breakfasts, I suggest you go to Culture Coffee in Fisherton Street if the sun is shining why not eat outside in their south facing garden. I walked past there the other day and saw a couple enjoying scrambled eggs on toast with salmon and it looked fabulous and I don’t even like fish. They have not been open long but they have carved a niche for themselves in a very competitive market.

Now coffee time and where to go next. Hopefully you’ve walked around the city and done a bit of shopping and you are now ready for a sit down and a cup of coffee. The Coffee Lab in Blue Boar Row where all the staff are trained Baristas’  so you know the coffee will always be great, they also have a small selection of pastries for you to enjoy, they have seating both inside and outside so you can enjoy people watching in the sunshine. Salisbury is a great place for people watching with seating all around the city.

Light lunch, we are back in Fisherton Street and heading to Fisherton Mill – Michael and Deborah have won loads of awards for their menu choices and sensible pricing – set in Fisherton Gallery there is so much to see and enjoy. If you don’t fancy walking then I suggest Reeves the Baker in the Market Place next to the Guildhall, they are a local bakery with a fabulous selection on their menu – things like Cheese on Toast or their Wiltshire Pasties which rival the Cornish variety in my eyes every time. If you have food allergies the Greengages in Catherine Street will look after you making sure you can enjoy a choice of food from their menu.


If its Friday then Foodie Friday wins hands down.. in the Market place with a variety of stalls cooking fresh ingredient’s for us to enjoy.

Now we are off to Robert Lewis Tea rooms in the High Street perfect when you are either on your way to or from Salisbury Cathedral. I enjoyed the fruit cake which came warm .. perfect with my cup of tea there is also The Bell Tower set in the Cathedral grounds, a view like that while you enjoy a cup of tea takes some beating.

And now for our evening dinner.. this is difficult as there are so many great choices across the city. For a special Indian meal I would go to Anokka in Fisherton Street. Shah Jahan for a great meal with friends. Charter 1227 upstairs restaurant over looking the market place with fabulous food and a great Chef find them in the Market Place as part of Foodie Fridays as well with burgers and hot dogs to die for.

Finally, drinks in my local The Duke of York a community pub, not flash just great hosts Paul or Matt and great company and the home of The Fisherton History Society. The one pub I can go to as a woman on my own and not feel uncomfortable.
