Salisbury cafe shuts without warning

A sign's been placed on the window of the Real Eating Company on Silver Street.

The cafe opened four years ago, following on from other branches across the South.

But this morning (Friday 8th November), a notice has been put on the door, with the cafe itself not opening for business:

The notice suggests the landlord has taken back control of the building

The exact circumstances of the closure are unclear at the moment. 

Spire FM has approached the Real Eating Company for a comment.


Salisbury's been one of six branches across the company - with others in Bournemouth, Chichester, Horsham and Portsmouth.

On their website, they've described their core values: 

"Being an independent business, we have a lot of freedom to make the right long-term choices on what we offer to our customers. This includes serving high-quality products from small producers, being sustainable and engaging with the local community."

The company has also prided themselves on initiatives like using 100% compostable coffee cups and using plant-based, biodegradable food packaging.

We love this idea of a @realeatingco cup tour! Especially as the summer is on the way and our favourite landmarks offer even more reasons to visit. Take a coffee and grab and go selection of food from us ??. All the packaging is 100% compostable too. ____________________ #Salisbury ? ____________________ #Bournemouth #GunwarfQuays and #Chichester you’re up next! ??
