Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A friendly welcome and nice drinks. The food was super, loved the lamb shank! The atmosphere is warm and the decor quirky. We had a meal before going on to the theatre and it was the perfect start to our evening.

A warm welcome on a wet day for a small party of adults and children meeting in Salisbury after travelling long distances. Children provided with toys - just the thing for a wet day. Food and drinks excellent and exceptional service from the young man...from behind the bar. We were not rushed and all went well. Highly recommended for families. In good weather there is the opportunity to use the pub garden which runs down to the river.More

Cory couldn’t have been more perfect as Barman and host for the evening. He used his charm, skill and respectful personality to make sure we and those around us had the perfect evening. He was working hard, but took time to make us feel special...as visitors to the town. The meal was delicious and I’d fully recommend this quirky, traditional old fashioned inn with a twist of the original. Thank you so much.More

This place is mint. Great in the summer. Nice and cost on the winter. The guy behind the bar with the long black hair has the best customer service skills I have ever experienced. Legend. Keep up the good work mate.
