Three weary travellers transferred from A303(!) usual hold ups .. Found The Haven .. appropriate name! Lovely service from lovely people, you fed and watered us well, ignore any bad reviews this is a GOOD place to take a break. We had three of the Sunshine Brekkies and Tea .. and Coffee... other comment mentioned the sausages being the favourite by most .. I swapped mine for my son’s tomatoes! So I’m happy! The food was hot, and served with care. We found a gem !!! Thankyou so much... We will recommend.

Thank Lynn S

Place was very clean and tidy and staff were very attentive and friendly and checked twice to see if everything was ok, breakfast was ok but small portions and high prices meant it didn’t add up for value for money. I work all over the country and you can get far better value for money cooked breakfast in the centre of London or pretty much anywhere else.

Good value for money, excellent service and spotlessly clean - far superior to those dreadful motorway services - programme it into your SATNAV if heading that way

Visited on way home yesterday looking for a breakfast. Although I live in Salisbury I have never visited before. Had their mid range breakfast and was very pleased at the service and quality of food for the price. Place was squeaky clean and busy with a very pleasant atmosphere. Will visit again without any hesitation

We visited on a Sunday morning for breakfast.
Good points: service & speed of service was great.
Portions were piping hot & generous sized.
Coffee was great.
Restaurant was spotlessly clean.

Not so good points:
I felt the sausages could have been better quality - they seemed to be cheap, catering sausages.
Breakfast wasn’t cheap; Just under £10 for a sunshine breakfast (the smallest breakfast choice) and an Americano.

Overall this is a positive review, many more good points than bad and we will return!

Thank LM_Jackson

Good Morning Lucy,

I absolutely agree with your comment on our sausages, it's just when I serve better quality unfortunately the irony is that, I receive complaints. This sausage is the one that pleases most people and is the best seller, believe it or not. I have to follow what the majority of my customers want, and this is it I'm afraid. However please do say next time and we will swap your sausage for extra bacon or we do a wonderful tasty veggie sausage instead. That's not a problem. :-)

Thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you again soon!
