Salisbury has a real tradition of hospitality, which makes it a great location for a night out.
With Taste Salisbury - a ten-day programme celebrating food and drink across the city - taking place this weekend we think it's the ideal opportunity to try out some of what's on offer.
If you want to head to a pub, Salisbury has a wide variety to suit all tastes, whether it’s a traditional public house that makes the most of the 15th century architecture like the Wig & Quill or a more modern alternative that offers a quirky décor like The Old Ale and Coffee House.
During the summer (especially on a long bank holiday!) there’s nothing better than to spend a leisurely evening with friends in one of the many pubs with a beer garden – The Old Mill and George and Dragon are two options where you can sit back and relax by the river. Or immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of the historic Market Place by taking a seat outside The Market Inn or Ox Row Inn.
Dining in Salisbury combines the old, new and international. Try some of the delicious world cuisine on offer, from Grillado’s Italian plates to Mexican fare at Tinga or Middle Eastern mezze at Baroushka. For something more traditional head to the Haunch of Venison or The New Inn – two of the oldest pubs in Salisbury. And, if you are looking for something romantic try Allium for modern British cuisine or The Chapter House which has a restaurant and grillhouse for flame grilled steaks, a la carte dining and hearty pub food.
Once dinner is done, it is time for some late-night cocktails! Caboose is a fantastic 1920s inspired parlour with fine spirits, beer, wine, champagne, hot drinks, tonics, sodas and botanicals as well as delicious cocktails on offer.
YoYo on Milford Street has some clever concoctions to try as well. The retro cocktail bar has their very own YoYo drink or order their bestselling Sherbet Dip-Dab or Jammy Doughnut shooter for a sweet hit.
Salisbury's newest outdoor venue, Brown Street, also offers an atmospheric location for a fun night out. Taking touches of inspiration from the likes of Pop Brixton, Boxpark and Pergola Olympia, Brown Street presents an ever-evolving creative space for the best in local street food and entertainment, whilst providing the perfect spot to have a drink.
Brown Street, other venues across Salisbury, are taking part in Taste Salisbury 2021. Go to the dedicated Taste Salisbury page to find out all the events, promotions and special menus that can be found during the ten-days of foodie festivities! Running until 5th September.
