I think this pub has seen better days and now needs a good refurb. The place is tired and knocked about, the leather banquette seating in the lounge side was in a bad state of repair, as it was starting to peel and bits of the surface were already falling off. All the woodwork was scruffy looking and walls just as bad. Beer wise six pumps, with five in use, we went for the Stockport Summertime, which was ok. But the Goffs White Knight, had to be returned, the young barman was fine and replaced it immediately.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Salford Arms Hotel

Prominent corner pub with a curved frontage, featuring a partly opened-out out multi-room layout. Mix of furniture and slightly eclectic decor in the various seating areas, with some of those at the back having rooflights. Five of six handpumps in use when I visited, with a fair range of styles including what seemed to be the regular Doghouse UPA (£3.40).

Looks a bit rough and ready from the outside but nice and friendly inside. Plenty of choice at the bar for the real ale lover and two handy chalk boards at either end of the bar listing the current offerings. The bar area itself is fairly small but can get crowded, making it difficult to see the pumps, so the chalk boards are handy. On my Saturday evening visit bar service seemed to take place at the bar hatch, as the rest of the bar was taken up by gents on bar stools. I had a Citra Pale (Saltaire) and Back to Black (Brightside), both were very pleasant and in good condition. Apparently the gents' toilets here are rather basic, though I did not pay a visit myself. Good solid boozer with good beer and friendly service.

A decent pub. 7 handpumps with a good variety of styles on offer. Two rooms but one was locked on this afternoon visit. A piano is by the stage area at the rear. One wall decorated with old newspaper prints.

Newly refurbished pub, close to Salford Central station. It's been nicely done out now from what used to be a shabby mess. There are some comfy seats along with more traditional seating along with a pool table. There were 3 beers on during my visit and my pint of Nook Blue Sky was in good nick. It's now worth adding to our Salford crawl on the way to/from the Kings Arms. Good job guys.

Called in here for the first time in ages. It has reopened for business. I was pleasantly surprised as the interior had been modernised and refurbished to a high standard. It was previously likened to The Jockey on TV's Shameless. Its previous customers' pretty much similar I may add!

Young Tom from the Angel is working there which is reflected in the decoration of the place. A pool table in one corner along with a jukebox offered entertainment. Diners will be pleased to hear there is a brand spanking new kitchen that can be seen from the bar. I didn't get chance to look at the menu, but if the smell was anything to go off then it should be bang on!

On my recent visit I was fortunate that they had two beers on from my favourite brewery - Saltaire! Even better was the fact that they had my favourite Saltaire stout on - Triple Chocoholic. The other being Raspberry blonde both being in fine condition. Prices were average at £3 a pint. I counted four handpumps - one being dormant. The other had a beer from micro brewery called Blackjack (I think).

The peculiar thing about the vault is that it is at the front of the pub depending on where you say the front is. I called in to watch a Champions League match and found it amusing that I had to press a door bell to get in. Maybe an original feature that they kept for sentimental value? Who knows?

I shall definitely return - that's for sure.

The Salford Arms is close to Salford central train station.
When i visited this pub it looked a bit grim from the outside and it still had its Chesters signs outside so i was expecting some real ale in here.
Once inside the pub was a lot smarter than i thought it would be,i had a drink in what was probably the lounge.
This pub use to be a Whitbread tied house but there were no Chesters beers on the bar,there were two real ales on here i had a drink of Joseph Holts bitter and this was a really nice drink the other beer was Boddingtons bitter.
This was quite a nice pub to have a few drinks in.
