A Gastro pub with an Italian flavour in Queen's Park. An unpretentious and friendly service combined with excellent food and an extensive wine list make this restaurant a must visit if you are in the area. The Salusbury is also a pub and this gives the place a real buzz. Try it to see if you like it!

Visited the Salusbury for brunch on Sunday as usual place Penks was closed for holidays. Service is quite terrible, with no welcome given when entering and tables didn't look clean. Glasses left on table for use also looked dirty. The place operates like a pub in which you place your order at the till with your table number etc.

Not a great deal of brunch choice on the menu and prices average for the area. My poached eggs were quite good, however, my partner's eggs royale muffins were tough and he stated that the salmon was seasoned etc. I was informed there was no fresh orange juice available as stated on the menu so had to have bottled.

At the end of the meal wait staff cleared table but no enquiry as to how the food was or a thanks come again type of conversation.

All in all, there is plenty of choice for brunch in the Queen's Park/Kensal Rise area and for the same price you can receive much better service and food elsewhere. I won't be returning.

We had been wanting to try here for some time. We didn't have a booking for the Saturday night, but they found us a table (we arrived about 2045h). That said, it wasn't completely full.

The waitress helped us to choose wine, and she described it well. Orders were taken, and only 2 of 3 starters arrived. We politely waited 5 minutes for the third starter to appear. We then notified a staff member who said it'd be out immediately. It wasn't. Another one turned up to say it would be coming. etc. etc. Ten minutes later....

Would you believe it, they then served two mains while we waited a couple of minutes for the third to arrive (and, coincidentally, same diner as before involved?).

Food was great. The service, whilst everyone was pleasant and seemed to know what they were doing, wasn't all that good. The prices are pretty steep for a local eatery, too. It would want to be a little cheaper before I return. It would also be nice if they had a separate street entrance for the restaurant so you don't have to squeeze through the crowded bar to get in/out.

My Girlfriend and I had a superb meal in the Salusbury last Sunday. Loved the pasta, very happy with the Slow cooked rabbit and the Steak. Chocolate fondant was everything I could hope for. Wine list was good, we had a very tasty bottle of red for 25 pounds.Only slight downside was the service, although professional it was not very warm. We ate in the Salusbury on chance, we did not book, the Waiter made a real point of telling us we should book.The restaurant remained half full. Wine Shop next door is fantastic and the food in the deil has gone up several notches.

Very busy place, obviously popular with the local yummy mummy crowd. The breakfast was top knotch and there was no trouble getting my bacon replaced (it was a bit crispy). Tad pricey but it's quite a smart place so to be expected, I suppose.
