“A really nice friendly pub”
Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

A lovely atmosphere and excellent staff and for normal pub favourites I am sure very good - but that means limited diet options and the steak and baked potato just ok. Whitebait and, I am certain, scampi etc will rate well, the whitebait was very good so they look after their oil. Great value, charming place and accommodating at 9.15 - in the evening obviously! thank you

“Not the best idea”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

The good:
Very nice, polite staff and good customer service. Bartender (with a thoughtful look) suggested there was room in the dining area away from the loud, odiferous group near the bar. Lovely, comfortable decor. Clean, pleasant toilets. Quite reasonable prices for food and drinks. Bill accompanied by large yummy mint chocolates.

The not-so good:
The soft drinks from the bar the flattest I've ever had from a tap. Menu was rather limited, but they did have a few specials on offer. However, the chicken spinach tart was slimy and the potatoes bland. While my friend said she liked her burger, the outside looked overdone and the bun soaked with grease.

Had a lot going for it, but the food ruined it.

“The Pheasant Salisbury”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Just had a meal in the Pheasant, had whitebait as a starter and stuffed breast of pheasant as a main course. The whitebait was good but you'll be really bad to screw that up as it's just deep fried but saying that the home made Tatar was v good and the salad had a very nice dressing. The pheasant was very good but what set it apart was the other elements of the meal, the veg was lovely, buttery, hot and not mushy, the potatoes were to die for, spoke to the chef afterwards but he wouldn't say how he did them (boo) . The salad was a revelation, it looked like a standard balsamic drizzle but when I got into it the dressing was like sticky.....fantastic, it tasted supreme and what's more it binded the salad together so you didn't end up with the normal trying to get a salad bush into your mouth. Might have liked having more dressing drizzled over the salad but that just might be me wanting too much! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Manageress listened to conversation about food and pub and was very customer orientated. I will be recommending this place to everyone I know.
