With function rooms fit for 5-110 guests, as well as our own in-house chefs the Red Lion Hotel is the perfect place to host a celebration in Salisbury. All event rooms (including our Vine Restaurant) are available for exclusive hire. Plus with 60 hotel rooms on site your guests will have somewhere to retire to once the evening’s celebrations are through.
We have two fantastic banqueting halls at The Red Lion, perfect for hosting Masonic Ladies festivals of up to 110 attendees. Each room benefits from its own private entrance and cloakroom together with in-room bar for convenience and privacy. While our chefs can cook up a feast in the kitchen, ensuring your members have an unforgettable evening.
Although Christmas comes but once a year, we like to extend the seasonal celebrations for as long as possible at The Red Lion. With Christmas parties every Friday and Saturday night from November, and a 3-course festive lunch offered daily throughout December. Together with special Christmas Day and Boxing Day menus for those celebrating the festivities with us.
Our New Years Eve celebration is the highlight of our seasonal calendar, and the perfect way to round off the year in style. We offer an exclusive dinner, bed and breakfast rate, which includes champagne and canapés, together with a lavish 4-course dinner. Rounded off by an evening of dancing, before raising a glass as the clock strikes twelve.
Life gives us many special reasons to celebrate and at The Red Lion Hotel, our team will pull out all the stops to ensure your event goes off without a hitch. Whether you’re celebrating 30 years of marriage, turning 21, or entering early retirement, we can help you put together the perfect celebration to mark the occasion in the company of your nearest and dearest.
Visited Salisbury for the first time for one night only and felt very comfortable staying at the best western red lion hotel. The service was excellent, staff very friendly and patient, the room facilities was great, very clean, comfy and I had no problems with operating amenities within it. The location was perfect within good access to the train station, town centre and main town sights.
Great for first time and one stay
We liked our stay in this hotel. Well located (walking distance from the cathedral and the Market Place), very friendly and helpful staff, the building is charming, and breakfast (included) is excellent. It’s a typical British country hotel, the building is old, but because of that has a kind of magic. Our bedroom and bathroom were small but comfy. No elevator (lift). It has parking, 15 pounds the night. Free wifi. The restaurant offers nice food, we had a very good pulled pork sandwich. Portions are generous. Breakfast as I said is very good, a buffet with different options (a lot of healthy ones). We really enjoy our stay.
Really lovely stay. Very friendly, helpful staff. Lovely hot chocolate sitting in front of an open fire. Food was great. Rooms very clean. Will definitely be back again and would recommend. 5 minutes walk to all shopping centres, cathedral etc.
Each Christmas my wife and I choose Salisbury to complete our present shopping and always make it an overnight visit from Friday to Saturday. Thus the Xmas market, regular huge Saturday market and fantastic shops are combined to magnify our experience. To make this a memorable event we always book way ahead to ensure we have a room and parking spot at the Red Lion. This is an ancient and historic establishment which offers the very best of accommodation and as was so this time, wonderful food. There it is, atmosphere convenience and excellence, what more do you want?
Another year has gone.
Stayed here for the first time. Great, central location for cathedral, local shopping facilities et al, superb food in the restaurant and the staff were very helpful, attentive and friendly. Very interesting and historic old hotel.
Excellent food, friendly staff
Delightful meal at the Restaurant. Wonderful selection as we were bored with traditional pub food. Magic outdoor garden setting. Service was excellent. Great management. Recommend you eat and drink here.
