I don't live in the area but have had two very enjoyable visits to this pub. This looks a good area of London with quite a bit of competition
pub wise. Three real ales on offer ,Summer Lightning, Sharps Doombar and one other dark beer. Sampled the food there on one occasion , it was good and arrived within 15 minutes of ordering. The clientele here seem fine and there is plenty of seating both inside and out.

Good-sized pub with a surprising range of beers for a pub in the suburbs of North London. Brooklyn Lager is always welcome on draft as is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale which are both present here along with several more traditional English Ales and a range of lagers. Prices aren't great but given the environment and the choice you get, it's actually a little cheaper than you might reasonably expect especially when compared to some of the local competition. The little "beer garden" which consists of little more than a patio out front is actually a pleasant place to sup your pint. All in all pretty good, perhaps a little too "posh pub" for my tastes but it's not unwelcoming and I will probably call again...even though my pint of Brooklyn Lager was a little on the past-its-best side.

As regular drinkers and diners at The Salisbury, we were keen to take our family there for dinner when they visited a few weeks ago.

When we arrived, we were told that there was a delay of, "about half an hour" for food, so we ordered main courses promptly at 7.45pm. Our meals arrived at 8.45pm and were very nice, so nice, in fact, that we all decided to have a dessert too. However, when we went to order at the bar (no table service this evening...!) we were told, very curtly, that the kitchen was closed - no apology, no empathy for the fact that we were ordering late because our main courses had take so long to arrive.

As the host, I found this very embarrassing.

Yes, it was a warm evening and, yes, the pub was busy. But at the very least somebody could have mentioned to us when the main courses were delivered that the kitchen would be closing soon. Of course, in some places, especially Freehouses, the Manager would have done the sums; 6 x 5 (desserts) = 30, + another round of drinks..........and given one of the chefs 10 to stay on for fifteen minutes.

Come on, Paul, it's these 'little' things that make a multi-million pound chain pub feel (and earn) like a well used 'local' all year round - even when the sun isn't shining!

Living in nearby Palmers Green the Salisbury is a god send! Winchmore Hill has a few decent pubs and with The Kings Head just around the corner the food quality has to be good. If you want to watch any sport then the Dog and Duck is the pub for you, however if you want a good Thursday evening, a few beers, good food and an evening out with mates or the girlfriend The Salisbury is a great pub. The selection of beers on offer is great and the ales are always a good crisp pint (a good sign in any pub!). As far as eating goes I have never had a bad meal here. I have been for Sunday lunch on numerous occasions and do agree that the service is sometimes a little lightweight and the wait for food longer than ideal however during the week I have never experienced this problem. The only other slight downside to this pub is that it is such a large building it can sometimes be a bit quiet.

I honestly can't understand why this pub is only rated as a 6/10. It's a comfortable 9 in my opinion, a great pub!!!

Reside locally. Visited in early August with a friend over from Morocco and the food was very good. Prompt and hot. Although it was a Wednesday afternoon. The faux Tudor gas fire in the winter is welcoming. And the decor idiosyncratic, in a good way, end to end. The only criticism I have is this: if it is a beautiful week day evening or weekend day then get more bar staff on! I have stood for 20 mins or more to be served. Given up and gone to The Kings Head nearby. Just as chaotic but they do know what they are doing under such circumstances...and you don't have to wave 20 notes in the air.
