Blackthorn _ left this review about The Salisbury

A good sized, traditional pub just off the Oxford Road and immediately adjacent to the train station, it’s one of those places that you could easily miss if you didn’t know it was there, which be a shame as it’s actually a very nice pub.

It’s basically all one single room, although it has been split in to several areas with wood partitioning, some of which included etched glass. Decor wise it’s quite traditional with a red ceiling and cream and terracotta tiling in front of the bar. A wood burning stove was in one corner but this was not in use. A plasma at the end of the bar was showing a subtitled film, but the volume was off so it was not intrusive, and neither were the other smaller TV’s around. Not something I normally like in a pub, but somehow here they fitted in quite unobtrusively. Flooring was a mixture of black tiling and dark laminate.

Beers on tap were Tighthead stout, Robinson’s Old Trooper, Deuchars IPA, Old Peculiar and Theakston’s Lightfoot. A further three pumps were not in use suggesting that there may on occasions be more than this. The barman was friendly and helpful, explaining the different choices in some detail and even offering to bring a taster over to my table. After such an enthusiastically presented beer selection, it was particularly disappointing that the only cider was Strongbow, of both the original and dark fruit varieties. How can a pub that seems to pay so much attention to it’s beer go so woefully wrong with the cider?

Called in for a pint recently, first time we've been in for a few months. Really nice looking pub with great wood and glass. Had a pint of Wadworths Olde Timer, really well kept beer it was too. Always a friendly welcome, good pub.
