|Lovely Pub Ruined by Dodgy Bar Staff...|
I used to use this pub a lot and love its Victorian interior and West End buzz, but just had one of those nights where you wonder why you bother. If you find yourself asking the barman for the full change for your round cause he keeps "forgetting" to give you your 5 or 10 pound notes in change, well you've been warned. Its only because we conferred afterwards we realised what he was up to. He tried to do me for a fiver and my friend for a tenner - dodgy bar steward... If you do intend to use this place watch your change especially later on when you've had a few drinks.

|.....well, as a frequenter of this ale house for a few years now, I don't believe there's much you could possibly knock the Salisbury for except for the fact it's not local to my home. The landlord is probably the friendliest chap you could ever hope to meet & that ethic too is certainly evident in the chatty bar staff. Service is superb. The pub's mirrored decor is quite eye caytching although I think it a tad dark throughout @ times. The ales, if not the most exhilarating, are always very well kept & you'll find a pair of guest ales on regularly. Granted, I've never sampled the pub fayre so I couldn't possibly comment but if you're looking for a drink or two in friendly surroundings then do head here - it won't disappoint.|
PS. Fuller's "Black Cab" Stout coming soon!

|A good sized traditional pub with plenty of original fixtures and fittings. The main bar is mostly one room arranged around an oval bar counter, although there are some divisions to make a small snug at one end. |
The flooring is old wooden boards that have been worn down to a smooth finish over the years and there is maroon paintwork on the ceiling. There is some quite ornate etched and frosted glass around, as well as a number of etched mirrors. A wooden porch protrudes in to the pub and this also had etched glass. There were a number of black and white photo’s on the wall that may have been stars of the local theatres. The wood panelled bar apparently has a marbled counter top according to the fairly detailed history of the pub displayed on the wall, although that was not in evidence on the part of the bar that I could see. This was to keep your pint cool in the olden days.
There is red leather bench seating up the left hand side arranged in to small semi-circles, and behind these are some ornate brass lamp stands. The snug at the rear was quite cosy with an old brick fire-place, although this was not in use, green paintwork and more etched mirrors. An interesting collage of musical posters is on the walls as you go to the loo. A large vase of fresh flowers was at one end of the bar, and several jars of different nuts were on sale behind it.
Good choice of beers on tap with Tribute, London Pride, Black Sheep, Deuchars IPA and Timothy Taylor Landlord. The solitary cider was Magners Golden Draught.

|My first visit to this pub for around 15 years and was chosen as the place to meet some family from out of London as the pub does food and is child friendly while food is being eaten.|
Large pub right in the middle of Theatreland.
Normally central London prices for drink but the food was good for the money and well cooked and not spoilt at all.
To echo the previous review the place does look a bit tired inside but it does the job and the decor is great for tourists to our Capital.

|This is my favourite pub in London. Starting now to look a bit tacky with gaffer tape on the edges of the carpet and on other various bits.|
My wife said the ladies had no locks on the doors and no Loo roll. At the prices they charge you think they could sort this out.
Food is very expensive for small portions. Go across the road and get a slice of Pizza.
This is still my favourite pub in London.
