Even though it took 30 minutes to get as they forgot to print the ticket to the kitchen and others at my table were served first even though they arrived much later then me. The staff was good in my opinion as they apologize. The Caesar Salad with chicken my wife enjoyed also.

This pub has changed hands several times over the last few years but now the current pub is by far one of the best in Salisbury in my opinion. There is a lovely old pub feel but the décor is beautifully done and welcoming, there is also a log fire in the winter and a lovely little courtyard which is... More

This is a nice pub, fairly central in Salisbury, handy for the market and also for some of the public buildings. There is an excellent value lunch deal, involving sandwiches and some hot foods and including a drink.

My first visit here, Blue & Moo pie with Mash 'n peas plus gravy was delicious. The pastry was crunchy & the STILTON inside leant a lovely tasty flavour. Hot chocolate fudge cake with single cream [ not synthetic] and a Cappachino made a delightful meal. Décor was olde worlde , comfortable & cosy. Toilet facilities were clean & presentable,... More

The food really was poor which was disappointing as the menu looked good. Two of our party chose pie and both looked as though the pastry had been finished under the grill (and forgotten about). Ham and chips was plastic looking pre formed slices. We didn't bother with pud.

We and my other half were wondering what to do for lunch one weekday walking through town and stumbled across the Pheasant! From the moment we stepped in it was quiet and peaceful. Excellent decor and very cosy. Best service we have had anywhere! And the food was amazing. I would recommend the club sandwich! It was amazing. Will be... More

We decided to visit for a meal with our friends after popping in for a drink a few weeks ago, where we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and welcoming staff. We found the bar clean and the barman (Mike) able to join in some banter. We ordered starters that all were well cooked and enjoyable. Our mains were again well presented... More
