Cana Community Christmas Collection

The Salisbury Hotel will be collecting Christmas donations on behalf of the Cana Community. The Cana Community organisation has set up overnight shelters and homes for the most vulnerable people in our city.


We are asking that the local Stanmore community come together and give a gift that will be most appreciated this Christmas.


We will be collecting any of the following items before December 10th. They will then be put into a hamper and given to those who will be struggling this holiday season.


Please drop in anytime and see one of our staff members. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the licensee, Trish Larkin, at


For your convenience, please click on the shopping list below for a printable version.


Our chef.....

Our Farmhouse Kitchen has opened under Chef, Ridz, and it is proving popular! Ridz began his culinary career in Singapore but since arriving on our shores in 2000 he's Australian pedigree includes Glebe's Le Petit Tarte, The Flying Fajita Sisters as well as The Henson Park Hotel in Marrickville and The Trinity in Surry Hills. Ridz is dedicated to using local seasonal products and he makes many things in-house, including everything from his own batter to sauces and pickles.

"I like simple, well-seasoned, well-cooked food," he says. "While there will be some seasonal menu changes and, from time to time, I will introduce some specialty dishes, my aim is to provide the sort of food that fits well with the local community, with friends and families. I love that at The Salisbury you're able to dine both indoors or outdoors in a relaxed atmosphere."

Our Two-4-One counter meals on Mondays are in full swing, you can now get a traditional Sunday Roast and, most importantly, there's now desserts available. Spring is here so swing by and say g'day to Ridz.


Welcome to the Salisbury

The Salisbury has been an integral part of the Stanmore community for more than 80 years. As most locals know, the lovely Art Deco hotel is currently being completely renovated: indeed it will be a work in progress for a while.  But the Public Bar, TAB and gaming rooms are open as are other areas including the beer garden.

Yes, there are furnishings still to come in most areas; but we are not rushing the renovations which are aimed at being sympathetic to the building and further cementing its relationship with Stanmore’s residents.

Our Farmhouse Kitchen has just opened - and you will see that we are serving wholesome, classic meals designed to appeal to all tastes.

Our goal is to provide a comfortable meeting place for friends, families and their children. New things will happen frequently now and I will keep you informed as they occur.

Looking forward to meeting you all!
