Can you think of anything better than enjoying an afternoon tea in Salisbury by an open fire, in our 800 year old oak beamed lounge? And in the warmer months, sit outside in our picturesque courtyard underneath one of the oldest Virginia creeper vines in the world. Or how about in the comfort of your own home – we’re now offering an afternoon tea takeaway and delivery service! Come and see for yourself, we’re sure you’ll agree that The Red Lion Hotel serves the best afternoon tea in Salisbury.

If you’re looking for an afternoon tea for two, or perhaps you’re arranging a get-together for a few friends or a large group, afternoon tea at Salisbury’s most unique hotel is always something rather special. Lovingly hand-prepared by our chefs and served on a beautiful 3-tier China cake stand, our delicious afternoon tea includes an assortment of savoury finger sandwiches, cakes, miniature desserts, and clotted cream scones. Served with your choice of tea or coffee as standard. Or why not make it sparkle with a glass of prosecco!

Booking isn’t essential, but we recommend making a reservation in advance so that we can guarantee availability. We also offer vegetarian afternoon tea, gluten-free afternoon tea and vegan afternoon tea, but we require seven days’ notice to guarantee availability. If you do have any of these dietary requirements and you’re coming at short notice, it’s worth getting in touch as we may be able to accommodate you.

If afternoon tea in Wiltshire doesn’t quite scratch that itch, we can thoroughly recommend visiting our sister hotel, The Connaught Hotel and Spa, for a truly sumptuous afternoon tea in Bournemouth. They offer a choice of spa day packages at their luxury spa, which all include a day of pampering with lunch or afternoon tea included.
