We stopped off here for coffee on a day out to Salisbury. The building is full of character and many centuries old and although it was quiet on our visit I can imagine that it has bags of atmosphere when busy. Definitely one to add to my list!

I have heard great things here but I went at a busy time about 3pm on a weekend and was waiting for 20 minutes for tea and cake. I wasn't bothered as I was having a slow day but other could find this annoying. Both tea and cake were excellent and the great hall is worth the wait.

Lots of lovely cake selection. Friendly staff. Tea choice ok. Pot of tea would be nicer than just one cup.

Lovely old building with bow windows and low beams. I had the chorizo breakfast hash and a latte, very pleased that they offer almond milk as well as soy. Large tea menu as well, it all sounded lovely but there was a lot of avocado on the menu which limited my options (as I don't like it, but if you... More

I was a little reluctant to visit a chain, but we were so glad we did. In fact, we had breakfast here twice! Many selections available, pub ordering (find table, note table number, order at coffee bar, meal delivered to you). Coffee selections as you'd expect, but also several unique herbal tea selections. Of course there are egg based breakfast... More

We have been many times to BTP, with the children loving choosing a special drink (bottle of apple juice) and hot dog and chips if we are eating. The drinks are great and the food available immediately is lovely. However if you order food it can be hit or miss. When it's right it is really excellent - great quality... More

This Tea Place is wonderful for a cup of tea. From the middle, you can see the whole shopping street of Salisbury. At 4 pm there might not be so many customers anymore, but the staff could definitely clean up a little. Especially the middle was very dirty. On every table were dirty dishes while the staff downstairs is busy... More

Had never been to a BTP branch before. The slabs of traybake looked amazing, shame it was a bit early so had to content myself with an almond croissant. Will be back for the cake another time. Was a bit confused by all the signs telling me I needed a table number before ordering (always stressful when alone), but apparently... More

Hi, Glad that the cakes were tempting you, even in the morning! The procedure for ordering can be confusing due to the layout of this historic building, we try and make sure all staff are really informative about this and we are currently looking at new clearer signage at the end of the bar, to eliminate the confusion going forward....

Hi, Really sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. Sometimes the food waits are longer than we would like due to levels of custom at different points in the day. Sorry on this occasion that we didn't communicate the wait time for your food. Everything is cooked fresh to order so this does sometimes causes delays. Hope you guys come back... More

Description
Boston Tea Party is a small family owned independent café group serving simple well-prepared food & drinks made with great ingredients, skill and love. Ethically sourced, affordable, feel-good & excellent quality - made from scratch onsite everyday by people who care about what they do. BTP Salisbury opened in one of Salisbury’s most historic buildings, the Old George Inn which dates back to 1314. It would be hard to overstate the historical significance & pedigree of this Grade 1 listed building. William Shakespeare is believed to have performed one of his plays in its courtyard, Oliver Cromwell slept here on his way to join the army, Samuel Pepys wrote about the Inn in his diary after a stay & both H G Wells & Charles Dickens made mentioned of it in their writings.
