Nice pub just outside the town centre. A touch quiet for a Sunday afternoon. But then, it was Easter Sunday. So the town was fairly dead. Ales on were Brains The Rev James, Ossett By George, Black Sheep Best Bitter & Springhead Outlawed. Cider was Westons Old Rosie. The pub is one large room, with sufficient seating. Lacked a bit of atmosphere though.

What a find. Everything you need from a pub after spending four hours out in the cold and wet. Real log fire, friendly welcoming staff, a fine range of ales and good quality food at very reasonable prices. The home made chips are to die for. My dog did not want to leave and neither did I.

A very good pub with good food at very reasonable prices plus a good choice of cask ales - 6 available on my visit. Well worth a visit.
My only suggestion for improvement is that it keeps up with the times, eg by offering WIFI and accepting card payment for food - both of which would have been really useful for me, while in Doncaster on a business stay.
That said, still a really good pub with pleasant and helpful staff.

Well worth walking out of the town centre for - a spacious bar with a mix of polished timber flooring and flagstones with beams and roughcast plastered walls. Single bar counter with a decent selection of ales (there were 4 availabel but I was told that more were to follow soon). TV (low sound) food looked wholesome and generous and two customers remarked about the great burgers!
Friendly barmaid; a small collection of old keg beer fonts but a quiz machine with all the wrong answers on it !!! I would definitely recommend The Salutation.

Smart pub with a good selection of ales: those we tried were well-kept and enjoyable. Due to time constraints we did not eat here, but the food looked good and worth calling again on a future occasion.

By repute, the best pub Doncaster has to offer and no wonder - an array of wonderfully well kept ales left me satisfied after a 3 hour train trip one winter Saturday. I also sampled the chicken pie - home made and accompanied by excellent chips and mushy peas. Good service rounded off the day and a wedding party that had taken over the pub on my arrival also seemed in tremendous spirits.

Lovely pub with decent customers, fine ale and friendly and welcoming staff.

I would definitely use it again if I'm in the area. It's how a proper pub should be.

Superb selection of real ale (up to 8 pumps) - probably best choice in Doncaster!!

One of the best pubs in Doncatraz

Very friendly pub and handy for the Keepmoat (If you can find a direct footpath rather than walking miles around lakes and man-made hills!) A lot of beers on offer, but a pretty uninspiring range and nothing from any smaller breweries. Having said that, the Tetleys was pretty good, and it was a decent pub with character.

Welcoming pub on the route from the town centre to the racecourse with a large selection of beers.

Probably the only thing worth being in Doncaster for. Miserable, grubby, grotty town. Lovely warm, friendly pub with excellently kept ale. Could do without the television in the main bar area, but it's easily escapable.

Excellent - presumably no longer a Teley's Ale House (nothing wrong with those though) as majors on indies/micros beers and feels much moreof a local - good Donny Rovers stuff on walls

Amongst the best boozers in Donny ( or Danum if youre posh), good choice of real ales , friendly bar staff and civilised clientelle.
