At The Red Lion Hotel, helping happy couples tie the knot is what we do best. As an inclusive marriage venue we’re licenced for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies in Salisbury. Offering everything from lovingly prepared food to a fully stocked bar, a choice of two ceremony rooms and 60 stylishly appointed bedrooms to sleep your guests. All overseen by our resident wedding coordinator, whose job it is to make your dream day a success.
For our Red Lion weddings, we reserve our most spacious and luxurious suite The Courtyard (complete with its own private entrance) or offer our Vine Restaurant for exclusive day & night hire. Both options are beautiful, with stunning feature details, and the kind of character you only get from being eight centuries old. Well, they do say the oldies are the best.
Food and drink are a key part of any wedding celebration so we make sure ours don’t disappoint. Each of our wedding packages includes a 3-course wedding breakfast (see packages) or buffet option for your guests. Plus we’ll include wine pairings with your meal, as well as a drinks reception after your vows, and bubbles for the speeches.
We have a choice of 60 unique hotel rooms on site at The Red Lion. Split between the original (and oldest part of our hotel) and a newer sympathetically styled extension. Each room offers luxurious linens, en suite bathroom, and a host of free mod cons. With preferential room rates for your wedding party and a complimentary stay for the newlyweds.
We offer our couples three tiers of wedding package. With a 50% reduction on adult rates for children aged 3-10. Our fixed prices include everything to make your dream day complete. From a red carpet arrival, and food and drink after the ceremony. To reception room hire and an evening buffet. Plus we offer a multitude of options to make your unique wedding even more bespoke.
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.

First class wedding host
Lovely quaint hotel with lots of charm and atmosphere. Food and service excellent and very reasonably priced meals and drinks. We had a superior room with a comfortable four poster bed and a lovely beamed ceiling. The wedding was beautiful and the hotel staff worked very hard to ensure all went well. Overall a lovely hotel which I would recommend.
