“NICE TO EXPERIENCE A GREAT NEW CREATION”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Needing a good pint after a shopping trip to Salisbury avoiding Wilton which is almost closed to the world at present called in for a drop of Henry's and was tempted by a new special - Asparagus Risotto with Pesto and a Seared Salmon Fillet.

Although Chef de Cuisine James doesn't use a traditional risotto rice with this creation his use of basmati rice works a treat with the pesto and al dente local asparagus topped with a perfectly seared fillet of salmon sprinkled with red chilli. Also the pint of Henry's is a good match for the food.

Anyone who ignores this special dish is missing a real treat - thank you James.

“Warm, friendly local pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

I hesitate to say how much we enjoy this pub in case it becomes so popular we can't get in! We live quite close by so visit it often for a pint and we are always greeted warmly though we don't always eat. However, when we do go there for a meal, the food and service is excellent and we would certainly rather eat here than almost anywhere else in the area. The sea bass was freshly and perfectly cooked and is highly recommended.

“Another thank you from the 'noisy birds' and men...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Found the pub by chance by following the signs off the A303 - They instantly accommodated 10 of us for lunch with no problem, the service and food was extremely quick and efficient. The food itself was delicious, beautiful tasty home made dishes and good sized portions and value for money. It was definitely worth stopping again on our way back across country and it's on the list of places to stop next time we're passing that way (If you'll have us noisy bunch). Will certainly recommend to other family and friends too. Thank you.

“Thank you from the 'Noisy Birds' gang!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We stopped at the Black Dog on the way to the West Country on Friday and were so impressed with the quality of the food and service we stopped there again on the way back east today!! A little gem of a pub/restaurant that we were extremely glad to 'discover' and would highly recommend!! Many thanks (and hope our group of 10 didn't cause too much disturbance to the 'locals'!)

“Unfriendly staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

The food may be amazing, unfortunately I'll never get to find out because the person answering the phone was so rude I decided book elsewhere
