We went here for our last night after looking at TR reviews. The pub was great, staff were so friendly and helpful. We had a couple of drinks and returned later for food. To put it bluntly, this is a pub, it had a great atmosphere locally which was made by the staff. The food was okay, not as expected, in that the quality could have been better. The starters were good, but bruschetta was too crispy in that you nearly broke your teeth on it, mushrooms on the other hand were great. The mains, mainly steaks, cooked to choice and couldn't fault, although the sauces were too much, less sauce would have been better, the steaks themselves were cooked to perfection. They do however cater for most tastes and will vary the menu to suit. What you need to know is that this is a pub and not a restaurant, it's a great pub, but average for food. However, you wouldn't be disappointed for the price you pay.

I have been a customer of Georges since I first visted Malta in 2001. His bar then was the best in Sliema and beyond and although his current bar is much smaller it is friendly, reasonable prices and has great pub food. Situated only 2 minutes from the Victoria and Palace hotels it attracts real characters who add to the friendliness of the bar. The bar is full of football and old style pub memorabilia. His mum and family are lovely and this adds to the whole experience. I only discovered he was here after 4 days of my holiday but spent the rest with him each day. If you are British its like being at home - large groups, forget it unless you are able to stand. One point - the toilets are immaculate, how do they manage this? Hope to return within the year!

You go on holiday to be somewhere new and different, but when you need a good pint or a great atmosphere for the footy, this would be a decent spot.

Found out about The Salisbury from trip advisor and was not disappointed. Welcoming local with good range if beers and food. Very welcoming staff who made us feel very comfortable. Had food there which was good pub grub, freshly prepared and good size portion without being too enormous.

Pub was busy whenever we went which is a recommendation in itself.
