A magnificent Victorian interior awaits anyone visiting this CAMRA National Inventory pub,it's a very fine example of it's type.I entered through the side entrance from Green Lanes with it's mosaic tiling which carries on into the pub itself.There is a tiny alcove,then several banquettes in black leather before a wooden fireplace.Through an arch there is a parquet floor in a more open section and this is where you will find the functional handpumps on the large island bar,there are a lot of non functional handpumps dotted about.The bar back is lit and has display cases of stuffed animals along with bottles and glasses.Finally there is a front bar .Everywhere there is fine etched glass,original features abound.Look up at the impressive ceiling,ornate and classy .There are columns supporting the ceiling in the bars.It's all very attractive as is the imposing exterior.
There were 4 handpumps operating on my visit drawing Redemption/Kernel collaberation Victorian MILD,Brew Buddies Wokka Light,London Pride and Hammerton N1 (decent nick ,£4.25 but I suppose someone has to pay for the interior upkeep).There are a lot of craft keg options too.There is a short burger menu with veggie,vegan and meat options for the patties.There is a late licence at weekends up to 2am and there was gentle muzak.A flag indicates it's gay friendly and there is a more mixed crowd in here compared with the other pubs on this part of Green Lanes.
Make sure you inspect this pub if in the area ,and with a decent ale selection I may well stay longer on my next visit.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Salisbury Hotel

This magnificent pub had been on my hit list for some time and am glad to say I finally paid a visit, definitely worth the effort in my opinion. The pub was built in 1898-9, which was designed and built by John Cathles Hill, along with it's sister pub the Queens in Crouch End. The pub was busy on our Sunday afternoon jaunt. The service was fine and there was a choice of six ales on handpump, so we opted for the Redemption Big Chief, which was excellent and also tried the Sambrooks Pumphouse Pale Ale, also in good shape.
The pub was serving Sunday lunches in the large rear room on our visit and a jazz band was setting up for an evenings entertainment. The pub has lots of original features and I especially liked the private booths near the front entrance with a fine example of an intricate mosaic floor. The rear bar area also has the original spittoon running along the plinth.

A Fuller’s pub now I suppose, as there were only Fuller’s ales on when I visited recently, with the ubiquitous London Pride; Discovery; Gales HSB; and Jack Frost on. I didn’t see a pump for either Chiswick or ESB. They also had two Litovel’s Czech lagers on, as well as Aspall’s Suffolk Cider and Hooegarden. I went for the Fuller’s Jack Frost, which was my first pint of this seasonal brew this year, and although it was very good, it was also very expensive (in my opinion) at £3.40 a pint.
The pub itself is an absolute tour de force of late Victorian interior pub decoration. It rightly features on the CAMRA inventory of heritage pubs. It really still is the big, rambling “gin palace” that it was in Victorian times. All the extravagant features are still in place, including the separate rooms, mahogany fittings, etched and cut glass everywhere, and the mosaic flooring is the best I’ve ever seen. It’s big enough that I’m sure it would take a couple of hundred people in there to make it look crowded.
The service was friendly enough, once I had followed the sound of voices to the bar where the only barmaid was working. There was a food menu, but it was a bit too “gastro” for what I fancied at the time. Sometimes you don’t want anything too fancy, and I didn’t fancy paying nearly £9 for a burger or £3.25 for some chips. The pub was empty on Saturday lunchtime, but I suppose it might be a very different place in the evening. In any case, it’s certainly worth a visit to see what a Victorian gin palace looked like in all its glory.
