|Love this pub - have reviewed it before but having gone in last night I just wanted to say how much I still enjoy it!|
Good beer, atmosphere and a fantastic location to watch the world go by! Visit!

|Beautiful pub-a must see for the interior alone. Add to this very friendly and efficient service and a good range of very well kept real ales and you have the best pub in the entire West End.|

|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.
