Our most local restaurant/bar and the revamp has resulted in an excellent Sunday lunch, friendly staff and atmosphere and somewhere we'll return to and hang out in. The quality of the food, portion size and value for money was just right. Added to that a cheeky quaffable Malbec. Job done.

A little post Christmas trip up to Salisbury resulted in a gorgeous find, The Chapter House. Within a five minute walking distance to the Cathedral you couldn't ask for a better location. We stayed in a family room which catered perfectly to the needs of two small children whilst still maintaining that special feeling of staying in a hotel. Dinner...

My wife and I popped in on the off chance not realising the old cow had been to market and had new owners/management team. From walking in to leaving I can not fault the staff, our waitress was delightful and helpful giving a perfect balance of attention and space. The food was fantastic and although some reviews may say it...

Stayed in the Lazy Cow for the second time at the beginning of October and again, couldn't find fault with anything. The staff are all friendly and helpful and the bedrooms are quirky and different from other hotel chains. The breakfast was outstanding. It is a pleasure to come to this hotel and the staff could not have been more...

I'm really shocked to see this place has 4.5 stars on TripAdvisor, as it is an utter shambles! We were so disappointed - what was supposed to be a relaxing weekend break was nothing but stress, due to the noisy, cold, damp rooms with filthy bathrooms. The staff did kindly move us when we pointed out that the windows in...

A quirky hotel well located for the splendid little city of Salisbury. Young staff who looked to be out of their depth and when all the faults we had were discussed it became clear the hotel is about to close for refurb. Just a shame that the hotel didn't tell us that when we booked.
