Often compared to a country pub in the middle of the City, The Pheasant is one of Salisbury's oldest pubs, dated back to 1642, nestling in a quiet square a moment's walk from The Market Square ( follow Endless Street opposite The Guildhall and turn right into Salt Lane where you can see the pub ). With two log fires and a wealth of character features, The Pheasant offers a choice of formal dining or less formal bar tables and fireside sofas for a pint of one of the 4 draught ales or a special occasion dinner. Our menu includes traditional pub classics ( steak & ale pudding, beer battered fish & chips, welsh rarebit etc ) and 28 day hung local steaks and grills, with a daily 'specials' selection ranging from cajun blackened salmon fillet, slow cooked lamb shank, confit duck and monkfish with spiced prawns, for example. Always clean, warm and welcoming, The Pheasant is open daily 11 am - 11 pm and offers a host of events to enjoy as well, including weekly live music, a popular quiz night and regular beer and cider festivals - give us a call to check what's on now !

Visited the pheasant last night. Had a really great meal. Was made to feel very welcome. We even asked to change the options available and this was accepted very pleasantly. Well worth a visit.

We came here unplanned and they have been really friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent. Best beer batter I've ever tasted. And the chocolate brownies are great!

We host a monthly networking group in the Pheasant; it's a great venue to get together and socialise and they are always very welcoming.

Popped in for a drink as we haven't been there for a while and what a pleasant surprise from the last time we were there.

The service was really good. Roast tasted lovely but only warm.I had roast beef which tasted good but very disapointed to be told once my dinner arrived that they dod not have horseradish. This would be nice to know before ordering. No complimentry drink?

I was taken to the Pheasant by my 9 year old son for a roast lunch on Mothers Day! We both had a three course meal taken off the special Mothers Day menu. As my son doesn't have a big appetite the staff were happy to offer the same food at reduced portions and price for my son. We enjoyed... More
