I'm happy to say I didn't get lost whilst walking to this branch, very easy to get to from Salisbury Station and easy to locate. It's just off the back of the high street taking up a huge corner. Good to see the branch was open despite a lot of closed down stores opposite and on the general road in the town.

Got there just about 4pm for a late lunch/ early dinner.. I was hungry. It wasn't busy but because a group of people had entered just before me, the host had disappeared with them to the other side of the restaurant and didn't come back for some time. I chose a table near the front that was on the inside of the curve of the restaurant to view the lovals going about their business. Very entertaining.

The cashier was rude. He saw me waiting at a til, another guy lined up behind me.. He simply logged into his till and without looking at either of us said 'next please'.. so uncool. I'm not gonna give them a 2 because the host was a really nice guy and the girl who brought my food over. It arrived in 6 minutes, was hot but delivered with a smile despite the chicken being visibly burnt.

The half chicken was a little black, the mash was tasteless but there was a lot of it, the garlic bread was nice though.

The restaurant is well lit, very bright and downstairs is very spacious which is always nice. The upstairs has a second till area and sauce/ cutlery station, a little crèche /play area for children and two bird nest type circular booths for guests.. though I saw someone lying down on one of the seats. There's a lift for children in buggies and also the disabled.

Nice branch, some friendly staff, okay food but I could go back to Salisbury to visit stone henge and the Magna Carta.
