Family-friendly restaurants in Salisbury

If you’re planning on spending some time with the family this Easter weekend, there are lots of delicious dining experiences to treat them to in Salisbury. 

There is a lot to discover in our modern medieval city, from Mexican to Italian and mouth-watering desserts! Here are some of the best family friendly eateries to try:   

Café life 

If you want to take time out from a day of shopping, head to the Bell Tower Tearooms which has just reopened for the summer season. Situated on the Cathedral Lawn, it gives parents the chance to relax in a magnificent setting whilst watching the kids run around. Also, in the Close, The Salisbury Museum Café, is another eaterie with a brilliant view of the cathedral. While you’re there, why not take the children for a look around the museum and take part in their Easter Trail.

Sweet treats 

If you're looking to up the energy levels with a hit of sugar, make sure you stop off at Wafflemeister on the High Street. With delicious waffles, crepes and smoothies on offer, you might find it difficult to choose! Sit outside to enjoy the spring sunshine. There’s also Sprinkles on New Canal, another dessert parlour serving up handmade, Italian recipe, gelato and a whole range of desserts. 

Outdoor dining 

If you want to enjoy the good weather, why not try one of these pubs which offer seating outside. The whole family will enjoy lunch next to the River Avon at The Bishops Mill, or The Ox Row Inn and The Market Inn have outdoor seating in the historic Market Place.

Dinner time 

If pizza is your family favourite, head to Pizza Venti on Fisherton Street. Their unique dough is based on a traditional Italian recipe. If you don’t want to sit in after a busy day exploring the city, you can take-away and enjoy the great Italian flavour at home. 

Set in the heart of Salisbury, Gigging Squid is a great option for families looking for something a little different. They have a selection of Thai favourites for all ages, with a special mix and match menu for the squidlets (children!). They also have games and colouring to keep them entertained. 

Tinga, Salt Lane

From Thailand to Mexico, Tinga offers an immersive experience the children won’t forget. There are colourful decorations throughout with a huge blossom tree, foliage walls, ornate mirrors and Mexican folk art straight from the artisan market of Mexico City. As well as all this, there’s lots of finger-licking Mexican dishes. Tacos and burritos are just some of the food on offer.  

Café Diwali on Crane Street is the perfect restaurant for those wanting an Indian option for the whole family. As well as the adult menu, they also have one for the kids which has been specifically designed so they get to try real Indian food but without the chili kick! If you do want some extra heat, they can do that too. 

There are many more tasty options across the city centre, which you can find on our TASTE pages.  

Why not make a day of it by exploring the Cathedral Close, Queen Elizabeth Gardens or one of our many attractions?
