They had the predictable couple of McMullen's ales on in here - AK and Cask. They have an extensive menu in the bar area - or they did on Saturday lunchtime when I was in there. As an example, fish & chips was £11.50 for the large version, and £8.25 for the regular version, which was quite small.

This is a large pub that really does have the feel of the hotel it is. It is a Grade II* Listed building, so you are entiltled to expect something a bit special. You enter into a corridor; on the left is a sort of lounge, but with no bar counter. On the right is a more traditional bar room; further down the corridor on the right is another large room with a bar counter and was being used by diners on my visit (table service was offered, but declined obviously); and right down at the end of the corridor is a more formal restaurant, which wasn't in use on Saturday lunchtime. All rooms are comfortably furnished, mainly with normal tables and chairs but I did spot a sofa or two in the lounge. The hotel feel was reinforced for me by the waistcoated waiter (?) who asked if he could help me as I was wandering around inspecting the panelling and the like. One of our company asked one of the (foreign) staff where he could find a bookies, to be told that he could book in at reception. Nice one.

This is a comfortable place, although it's not very pubby. It's the sort of place you could take your mum for lunch.

ORIGINAL REVIEW Dec 2010
A typical County town hotel with an attractive curved and semi glazed front door,a guests private lounge to the left ,front bar to the right and the most attractive feature ,the back bar off the corridor past the reception desk.There is a restaurant at the end of this corridor.The front bar has Sky Sports TV,can get cramped and a little laddish at peak times and is fully visible from the street,while the back bar is calmer ,has some very traditional wood panneling and more upmarket furniture.However the frosted windows are small and run just below the ceiling,so there is not much natural light ,I find this bar better in the evening.The traditional hotel feeling is maintained by bar staff in waistcoats,but the ale is a let down,often in poor condition at this Mc Mullens tied house which features all four of their beers AK,Country,Cask and IPA .Worth a visit for the interior if not the ale.

UPDATE
All change at The Salisbury Arms.There is now a pub grub menu available in the bar areas ,and sadly the rear bar is now given over to dining,menus everywhere and the serving counter largely unused.Drinkers congregate in the front bar,but pub grub served here too and this seems to dominate proceedings nowadays.Macs beers still indifferent but at least the interior decor is traditional,even the stained brown ceiling is reminiscent of days before the smoking ban.I didn't eat,but plenty were so maybe the food is better than the menu implies.

This is a small hotel bar and I have no idea why anyone that wasn't staying in the hotel would want to drink here.
