“Very poor value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

We ate here on Saturday lunchtime, there were only five customers in total so we were served quickly. We paid nearly £27.00 for two drinks and two ham salads. The salad was nearly all green leaves with about a half a slice of thin processed ham cut up and sprinkled on the top, very poor.

“Lovely meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

We have just returned from a weekend in Salisbury,and decided to eat at The Chough on the Friday night.We found ourselves a table and were served very quickly indeed.The food was well presented and very tasty.The pub has a lot of character and there are seats outside as well.We found the staff to be very attentive and friendly and the pub was very clean and tidy (including the loos) I cannot believe the bad review about this pub!We found it charming and the food and drink wonderful.I Would recommend this pub to anyone going to Salisbury for a meal or just a drink.We went back there for lunch on the Sunday and the Jacket spuds were gorgeous.
Keep up the good work.

“Warmth and Character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

I have visited the Chough many times over the years , but it seems to have a great vibe about it now. Since the new Manager Andy has taken over it seems to be moving in the right direction once again with friendly staff and great food.
There is live music there now which is much better organised than in previous years. I would highly recommend this place of great Character whenever visiting Salisbury and in need of great food !

“Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

I'd already visited The Chough and couldn't believe Randy's review... 'yeasty beer'... I found well kept real ale. I visited Salisbury Thursday this week to meet an old work colleague who's recently moved there and she was recommended The Chough. Olde world surroundings, good beer, great welcome from Andy the manager and a delicious chicken tarragon. Beautiful.
