Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The cafe had been recommended to us. The menu is most unusual and delicious. I had a dish with persian rice. We also shared a cake, which was very tasty. This was the best meal we had in Salisbury on our holiday.

This is a delightful cafe, gallery and shop set just back from the main road from the railways station towards the Cathedral. Located in an old mews the cafe serves food and cakes and is located in an attractive building that also houses a lovely shop selling a range of handicrafts and artworks. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The place is about a 5 minute walk from the station and is also on the main R1 bus route.

Quite a niche menu that offered nothing to my taste. Limited range of options. Also very expensive compared to similar cafes locally

Fisherton Mill just overflows with character, warmth and quality. Our mid-week lunch in the gallery cafe was truly outstanding. We were greeted with a buzzing atmosphere, and friendly efficient service ,the food was fresh, sharp, perfectly presented with immaculate attention to detail......and deliciously tasty. We only wish it was 300 hundred miles nearer to our home up north------but we will be back !!

First time, drawn in by the TA reviews. Excellent service from the staff despite being very busy and served promptly. I had the soup, Italian vegetable with lentils which was flavoursome and much enjoyed. We shall no doubt return because their cakes looked great as well!

Although the cafe was busy we had attentive and friendly service. They were great with my elderly father in law as well. The food is all home made and so good! Especially impressive pudding of meringue and figs.

Absolutely delicious freshly made smoked haddock tart followed by buttery marmalade pudding. Clearly highly skilled cooking. Pitch perfect service despite being busy, great coffee too. Nice gallery to walk round afterwards too. All in all a real treat.

We had a fine lunch here, with fresh fixings and excellent service. We found the place by accident--serendipity. Our hotel had recommended another place but they had suggested another restaurant the day before and we were disappointed with it. Anyway I would suggest that you go here for breakfast or lunch. Sitting outside on the terrace on a pleasant day was delightful. The food was tasty and well presented.

Gorgeous craft and arts venue. Lovely staff and setting. Wouldn’t have found it if not for the tourist information centre recommendation. Courtyard space where I had my coffee. Lovely variety of crafts and arts from local people. High quality.

I've never been here before, it is a very quaint place with friendly staff. After visiting the second hand book store, we were in need of a drink and cake. There were a great variety of cakes to choose from and there was gluten free, which was very appealing for my friend. Ordered a latte and hot chocolate and three different cakes. Reasonably priced at £18.20 Everything was very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend.

Having visited this cafe before I was looking forward to a lovely healthy meal. Today I was very disappointed. I was asked if I would like crackers with my salad and I said no. When my salad was delivered it had crackers on it - I am allergic to the ingredients in the cracker s. Why bother asking me if I wanted them if you ignore my answer. The meal was replaced minus the crackers. I was disappointed to receive a £14 meal consisting of what looked like a handful of lettuce leaves, a couple of wafer thin slices of pear and two wedges of Stilton - sadly it was all swimming in olive oil. I took the first mouthful and it was rank! I might have poured a big glut of olive oil in to my mouth. The waitress took it back and the chef returned this time with a fresh salad minus the olive oil. Very disappointingly he then proceeded to have a very unprofessional rant at me in the middle of the shop because I said my mouthful of olive oil was rank - which it was!!! This is appalling customer service! We paid our bill and left. We will not be returning. I certainly would not recommend paying £14 for that small amount of food, swimming in oil and very rude service!

I would like to clarify some incorrect statements in your review. You selected from the dessert section of the menu and this is our option for those who prefer a savoury end to their meal as against sweet. Therefore, the smaller portion size and price reflects this. This dish is priced at £7.95, but despite having made it multiple times we did NOT actually charge you for it. Your husband very politely and kindly paid for his meal ‘because it was so delicious’. Despite being asked to do so on our menu you did not mention your oat allergy at the time of ordering, only the gluten allergy. Consequently, when the kitchen received the gluten free order (cheese with no biscuits) they thoughtfully included some alternative gluten free crackers on the plate. Obviously, they would not have done so had you mentioned all allergies at the time of ordering. Every single other customer ordering salads and open sandwiches last Saturday (the day you came in) and every other day of the week, this week, last week, last month and so on have all eaten the same Greek extra Virgin olive oil and not a single other person has ever complained about its flavour or the quantity used on the meals. On Saturday alone we successfully served just over 80 lunches the majority of which were dressed with this oil. Your husband himself had this oil on his meal and to use his own words described his meal as ‘delicious’ In fact you have eaten this very olive oil previously on the salads you have ordered when you have visited. It is therefore a mystery as to why you found this same oil to be so intolerable on Saturday. I would suggest that making and serving your meal 3 times and not charging you for it in the end shows just what good customer service we do offer. We always hold our hands up if we get things wrong and apologise to our customers and seek to make it right. But you crossed a line with your comments and, on this occasion, nothing we did was sufficient to please you on your visit. Despite the team's best efforts you were unjustifiably rude and Michael, the owner and chef, simply responded in a very polite way and asked you not to be rude.

A little gem of a place set nicely off a main road. Before I even looked at a menu I saw some of the lunches coming out. OMG they looked wonderful. A quiet setting nicely intergrated into the shop and the gallery sitting outside on a warm day lots of conversations going great waiting staff smiling and engaging. I had a Turkish flat bread with a pomegranate and leave dressing and lovely lamb.10/10. Sally had salmon and prawns on rye, equally delicious with a good serving of prawns. The best was yet to come, ice cream in a waffle cone lemon flavoured. 11/10. Thank you

Fresh food home made and delicious in charming garden setting perfect for a light summer lunch or cake. And with a second hand bookshop next door. My butternut squash with a chilli sauce was very good indeed. Only quibble is that the portion was very small for the price of £14.50 even allowing for food inflation - it was really a starter portion. I will be back but probably not for lunch.

Thank you for your comments regarding the Cafe ambience and positive comments relating to your lunch with us. We believe you are talking about the 'Black Barley, roast squash & shatta, broccoli salad, feta and almonds' dish, which is £13.50? We do only use fresh, high quality ingredients in our menus and whilst our dishes reflect quality over quantity and we do not 'pile it high', we do think that we serve a good portion and we are sorry that it fell short for you on this occasion.

We found positive reviews on tripadvisor, and decided it was a good place to meet halfway for a catch up. It was lovely being able to walk round the gallery, see the local artist products, and then being able to sit down and have the most delicious lunch. We both had the rigottone, and it was absolutely amazing. The cakes proved too tempting, and the carrot cake is 100% justified in being recommended! I even had a bit of brownie to take away. Absolutely amazing customer service, incredible food, and lovely atmosphere. Would highly recommend.
