About The Red Lion Hotel:
The hotel has 60 feature bedrooms and offer wedding bookings as well. Whether you are relaxing in the Victoria Lounge, visiting the Vine Restaurant, the 1220 Bar, or enjoying the sunshine out in the Courtyard, you are guaranteed to experience the warm hospitality of the staff and the inviting atmosphere.
A visit to this hotel with my mum and my nan made it more personal as not only was my mum born in Salisbury, but both my mum and nan worked at The Red Lion when they were younger. It made the visit extra special for us all.
We were invited to have their popular afternoon tea and seated in the Victoria Lounge. The high back, deep chairs allowed us to relax in comfort as we enjoyed the selection of foods.
The Afternoon Tea consisted of: 2 warm scones each – one fruit and one plain, 3 finger sandwiches – one egg, one cheese and tomato and one salmon and cream cheese. We then got to enjoy a selection of mini cakes, cheesecakes and macaroons. They were all delicious and we had refillable tea and coffee. It was enjoyed by us all and we couldn’t finish it all and were allowed to take away with us.
The hotel was clean, tidy and the staff were all very accommodating. We were greeted as soon as we came in and the staff answered any questions which we had.
They offer Traditional Afternoon Tea for £18.95 pp and a Prosecco Afternoon Tea for £24.95 pp and a Cream Tea for £10 pp. All of their Afternoon Teas are served with refillable tea and coffee. In addition they also offer vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options, however the hotel will require 24 hours’ notice.
