The New Inn and Old House  

Billed as Salisbury's only 'no smoking pub' it is surprisingly clean aired. The outside is all black beams and whitewash, the inside all low beamed ceilings and 'dark' lighting. The bar is to the right of the entrance and serves a couple of guest beers; Badger Best Bitter and Wells Eagle on this occasion.

Food is served lunch and evenings and is restaurant like, though there is a blackboard of specials above the fireplace. Vegetarians have limited choice and must like garlic! Prices are steep too for what you get, so watch out. There is also a smaller bar area round to the right of the bar where alcoves allow cosy assignations to be carried out.

The beer garden faces the cathedral and gives good views of the spire.

Access to the main lounge area is OK for the disabled but the toilets are out of bounds.

Accommodation at £40 a single and £50 a double (there is no cooked breakfast).



This pub has changed hand and is now run by Colin & Karen. The main bar is Smoking and they have two non smoking restaurants. The food is excellent (Stephen Cooper).
