The pub decorations are just sensational. Delightful pub and when in the West End you have to visit. Decent range of beers now. Check out signs outside the toilet too, Hilarious list of ten ways we British speak. Water is Wotah, and tube is Chube....As a cockney my Canadian wife is always saying that is exactly how I speak....More

Popped in here as it looked like a really old pub,spacious, welcoming,lots of glass effects and wood. Bar staff lovely,even when I requested lime slice in my drink( as I thought they'd forgotten) the lovely woman at the bar didn't say I've done it already,just...gave me another one! Great fries with sea salt and rosemary and tasty tuna toasties. Relaxing,friendly,good food and in the centre of London.More

Visited this pub on my own ! It was great, atmosphere is great, really cosy and welcoming. The staff were really friendly and helpful - recommend me the perfect ale ( I tried landlords it was really nice and well kept) I spend there few...hours and of course tried pie and chips - it was delicious! Steak & Ale pie is a must to try! It was well presented and tasted beautifully and For London prices I do think it’s reasonable! The wait was a bit longer for pub, but they been extremely busy and food was well worthy the wait! Would definitely recommend this pub for everyone passing by St Martins Lane!More

Found this pub on Sunday at lunch time. The Sunday roast was lovely, the staff friendly and the atmosphere welcoming. Reasonably priced roast too. However, two criticisms: the plates need to be warmed so that the food stays hot throughout the meal! And you need...to improve on the waiting time between main course and dessert, 30 minutes is not acceptable, especially when it wasn’t overly busy.More

Been coming to the Salisbury for some time when in London as I’ve enjoyed the ambience of this old fashioned pub So after meeting up with a friend we decided to go there for a meal today. Probably shouldn’t have as it wasn’t worth the...money I paid for them. Freshly prepared it definitely wasn’t. The sausages tasted like they had been cooked in the morning and kept in a food warmer and the mash wasn’t any better. Even the gravy couldn’t make it less drier Don’t bother using the Greene King App as the order is ignored. After 10 minutes of waiting for the drinks I ended up going to the bar asking where they were! Ended up having to show the receipt. Even after that the bar staff brought the wrong drink to the table...More
