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.

Found this little gem of a pub after getting lost, staff are friendly and very helpful. Owners are amazing so went back for some food and tried the maltese dishes, rabbit ravioli and bragioli. All we will say is give the chef a rosette...the food...compared to some of the best places we have eaten. Everyone here whether they are locals or just passing through are so friendly...you can walk in alone and leave with friends. It is a no frills pub but it doesn't need anything more than what they already haveMore

After seeing a review on trip advisor saying it was the best Sunday roast in Malta I couldn't have been more disappointed, I doubt anything on the plate was roasted never mind not an ounce of seasoning or flavor to any of it and undercooked...chunks of carrots (first photo) , absolutely shameful to try call it a roast dinner, how ever the staff where friendly even after I informed them I would not eat the food but still happy to pay as it was made, I then left in search of a real roast dinner as seen in the second pictureMore

This was a great little find. Just a few doors away from the Palace hotel. Nice friendly staff. Good background music. Great range and quality of drinks and good food. Would easily recommend. And more importantly Would go back if ever in Sliema again.

Very nice and stylish pub in old English style with many MUTD posters and TShirts.. with plenty of whiskey and beer. Not recommended order wine because it’s PUB!

Great wee pub, good food, good beer and excellent staff. It's not the biggest place so it's all about timing or reserving to get a table. We were lucky at our third attempt and glad we persevered. There are some tables through the back so...if busy when you stick your head in then it's worth heading through to check. It was great to get a nice draught pint that wasn't the tasteless local brew Cisk. Food was very tasty and a great price but the highlight was the warm welcome and faultless service. We chanced upon here when walking from our apartment to buy some shopping in the nearby Lidl as its not down on the main drag, another plus.More

Very close to AX The Palace Hotel, this great pub is 65 small paces to the right up the hill. Great menu, lovely staff, and very affordable meal, including traditional Maltese dishes, as well as some British classics. Lots of drink choice. Great atmosphere. It's...a small place, but it has a small room with 4 tables at the rear. Maybe it is advisable to reserve a table in the busier seasons.More

The Salisbury Arms did not disappoint , we had both breakfast and Sunday lunch and found the quality of food was excellent value for money and the service was 1st class. The owner George was a first class host , his only fault was being...a Manchester United fan !! Set only five minutes off the main Sliema sea front I would highly recommend a visit to this nice English style pub.More

Omg!!! Wowzer. Highly recommend their Sunday roast. Soup - tasty freshly made delicious. Chicken light, succulent and fell off the bone, perfectly cooked veg, roasties soft fluffy middle with crunch etc. Followed by apple pie with ice cream. Although they accommodated my walk in, I...strongly recommend you book if you are thinking of frequenting this establishment. Staff are delightfully charming and polite. If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself.More

Wonderful staff-always helpful friendly and remembering their guests 😍😍 The owner of the pub is a charming man from whom you can feel a warm and open heart. The place itself has a great soul and is very atmospheric here! Food a huge plus- from...myself I recommend a plate of muli and all the burgers and nuggets. Beer always fresh and delicious. While in Malta you must visit this place! 😍More

It does broadcast sports but they are in the background, so not overbearing. It is a pub however, not a restaurant as such.
