This is a nice pub in Pitton (Salisbury, UK). The food is of good quality and taste. The service is quick and people are nice.
To be recommended.

“Good food, great location”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I've been visiting this pub for many years and always loved the location of this pub. It has a great beer garden which is perfect for enjoying a pint or three of real ale and a bite to eat. We visited a couple of weeks ago having not been for a while as thought we would try it again after a disastrous meal a few months ago when it was inbetween owners.

The food was great, the service really friendly and nice pub atmosphere. My only gripe would be the prices. Its very expensive for what it is and the beer is expensive too but would recommend you go and try it for yourself as the pub is really nice.

“Great service, delicious meal”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

A Friday afternoon late lunch after a long walk, we came to the Silver Plough, in the very picturesque village of Pitton, with 'chocolate box' thatched cottages. A seat in the lovely garden in the front of the pub, lots of other customers already enjoying the sun and their meals. Very warm welcome from the staff, including a dog-biscuit for our canine companion. As vegetarian diners we were pleasantly surprised to find several choices, but we both decided on the chick pea & lentil curry, with rice, naan and onion bhagi. Absolutely delicious, fresh and hot. We did not have space for a dessert but did have time for coffee for me, and Fairtrade mint tea for my companion. Another biscuit for the dog from the waitress, before we left to complete our walk. Charming staff, we felt valued customers, and I would love to return to try more of the menu.

“Sunday lunch”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

Just had lunch with 11 other members of my family, very friendly welcome and good lunch, one member of our party is gluten free, and this was catered for with no fuss at all. Also my husband was impressed that he could have alcohol free lager The roast was lovely and nicely presented, my only comment would be I would have liked some green vegetables. Puddings also very good. We are ex publicans and quite critical, but this pub was friendly, with a warm welcome good service and very clean

“Splendid evening !!”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

Was taken here by my husband for a surprise Birthday meal. He followed a good review placed in the local Caravan Club @ Salisbury Hillside site book.

Neither Landlord nor Landlady were to be seen during the evening, but the standard of the staff without this supervision was superb........

As others have said, food is not the cheapest but quality and value for money cannot be faulted.

Good choice of menu, quality of food, and service could not be faulted.

Perhaps the fact that this was a Tuesday evening, with the restaurant full, gives an indication of the quality provided.

Hope to return again soon
