One of our regulars, often mett with friends here for a beer and burger ( chicken burger is great!) Set in a lovely old building, with winding corridors out to a outdoor seating area. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Also has a hotel but never stayed.

The Chapter House is a wonderful find in Salisbury. It has been standing since the 1200's and has all the quirks of a building that old. Sagging beams, not a straight surface to be found. The stairs from the Pub (where you check in at the bar) to the rooms are reminiscent of those found in the fun-home in a...

We Popped in whilst completing a treasure hunt around the Cathedral. It was Christmas time, and it was just lovely and welcoming inside. A very nice venue, pleasant staff, would go again, and it would be nice to stay for a couple of nights too.

With only two days to spend in England, we struck gold by finding the Chapter House. The property itself is equal parts historic, luxurious, cozy and warm. I read a review that said "funky" which was appropriate, but only in the most positive definitions of the word. In a facility that is first a restaurant, you might lower your expectations...

Thank you for your review. All our rooms are unique and full of charm. As with yourself, majority of our guests staying in our double rooms, tend to stay for one or two nights only, thereby the need for less clothing storage space is required. We have found that guests would prefer a comfy chair and a dressing table in...
