A two room pub on a busy road with a small bar near the entrance. Situated not far from the railway station it is on the outskirts of Salisbury, outside the ring of the river. It has a real fire and small round metal tables, wood benches compliment, can get smokey. The bar is small with an overhang for glasses. When it's busy it can be hard to get to the bar for service.
Beers on at the time were Wadworths 6X, Ash Vine Slam Dunk and Hop Back Summer Lightening.
The larger second room is on a different level up and down a corridor past the toilets (no good for the disabled) and there is a bar here for busy periods. It's very blue and there is table football at one end, a canoe on the ceiling and odd pictures and pub mirrors on the walls. Bric a brac on a high shelf complements. It also has 2 TV's showing different channels of sport. Long benches down the sides with traditional wooden tables and chairs for 40 people. The central chimney has gone and there is an arch now. Two pews and a kitchen table are now squashed into the right hand side next to an old pinball machine.
Look out for the record sleeves on the walls also - do you remember the artists?
Accommodation here, though not seen on this visit. No food I'm afraid.
Wheelchair access is OK for the small bar, though space is very limited.
