Restaurant details
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We were advised to call in this pub for a meal whilst staying nearby, exploring the many sites of archaeological interest in the Salisbury area. There are two pubs in Winterslow - this is the one at the top of the hill near the thriving village shop / post office. There is nothing fancy about this pub - it is fairly plain outside and the inside is comfortably but plainly furnished. Despite having never been here before, we were immediately made to feel very welcome by the staff and the locals and the samples of beer offered helped in the choice of the excellent local but unfamiliar brews. For those who think that life isn't difficult enough already, quirky puzzles were provided on the tables! Meals are served in the bar area and the menu is a bit more ambitious than your average pub food. The quality of the food, and the way it was cooked, was certainly better - we had a couple of very good meals at a reasonable price. The proprietor was interested enough to come and have a chat with us and seemed genuinely concerned that we should have enjoyed our meals (which, as I have said, we certainly did). We would have liked to eat here on the Sunday night as well but, beware, the pub is only open on Sunday lunchtime. We would certainly eat (and drink) here again. It is not a posh restaurant, but I have had worse food and paid more in a number of so-called restaurants. Recommended.
