This bar has changed quite a lot over the years, however since it was refurbished and restored to its former role as the Salisbury Arms, it’s really taken off. Inside, the bar makes you feel like you’ve entered a country pub – with wooden interiors, a big fireplace and leather couches, you feel relaxed and comfortable the minute you walk through the door. They also have a beer garden and seating where you can enjoy a touch of alfresco eating when the sun shines.
The food on the menu advertises itself as ‘good, honest, pub food’ and that’s exactly what you get – from a selection of roasts on a Sunday to a light lunch menu or a full a la carte main menu – it’s hard to know what to pick! I recently went along for Sunday lunch and had a very tasty fish pie and my family thoroughly enjoyed some of the roasts on offer. The puddings are very tempting too with everything from sticky toffee pudding to cheesecakes to a ‘sharer dessert’ that would be a challenge to manage without help.
As well as the food on offer, the Salisbury Arms also lives up to its ‘good local pub’ claim with lots of events on during the week like ‘ladies’ night’, a pub quiz and various ‘special’ nights like Fish Fridays and ‘Cattle and Cork’ night. On top of this, they also have a mailing list and an RSS feed with updates on news and offers.
