Description: 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 !

Just had Sunday Lunch at this lovely atmospheric pub. Excellent food courtesy of Woitek the Chef, his parsnip crisps were indicative of the care he takes with all the food served, including getting the balance of slightly sharp rhubarb & sweet crumble topping just right ! Matt & his team really show that the customer matters.

It was Mothers Day so our children took us both out for dinner to the Pheasant. It was a really enjoyable experience: good food at sensible prices in a delightful old building. Two dishes stood out: the chicken liver pate was well above average, perfectly smooth, well seasoned and something I’d like to have again. My wife had salmon on... More

Thankyou so much for your kind review - very welcome ! I'm glad that you enjoyed your meal with us, and the two dishes you highlighted are also my favourites ! I take on board your comment about the wines - we're very much a 'pub with great food' rather than a pub trying to be a restaurant, so a... More

Visited on a 'highlife' deal and was very impressed with an excellent steak dinner, superior in comparison with other steakhouses in Salisbury. Will definitely visit again.

I took my mother here for lunch. The 2 course set meal was excellent. I had a game pie and crispy pheasant salad. Excellently made. The service was also excellent. And the atmosphere was superb. I'd recommend this to anyone.

Really enjoyed the steak and wine deal here on a Friday evening. Wine was very drinkable (not a cheap option), and we have nothing but good things to say about our steak meals.

We went here on a Highlife deal and were really happy with the whole experience. The welcome and service from the Manager? Behind the bar was exemplary. We both felt that his attention and willingness to please was genuine. Good real ale too. Definitely be going back.
