ORIGINAL REVIEW May 2010

This is an earthy gem ,a traditional drinkers boozer.A small street frontage ,the front door opens into a small basic area with a bar to the right with three handpumps dispensing very well kept Hop Back Summer Lightening,GFB and Sharp's Doom Bar.A real cider is stocked together with continental bottled lager in the fridge.There is some seating by the small fireplace but much more on the higher level at the rear beyond the loos.Here there is a large screen TV,off on our visit,and a table football machine and wooden settles,tables and chairs.There is background rock music but not cranked up to put you off from the fine ale which is very good value around the £2.50 per pint mark.Well worth missing your train for,a must visit on any crawl in the area.

UPDATE
After a short closure,there has been a change of guard and the ale house vibe is back.The exterior now looks much more traditional and lots of wood panelling and pews make the front lower section a comfortable place.4 handpumped ales with Hop Back Summer Lightening and GFB as regulars and guests on my trip Stonehenge Great Bustard and Danish Dynamite (cheap at £3.30,but not well settled from a new barrel).
Open on Monday lunchtime ,so Whatpub hours are wrong and glad to see this solid boozer open again.

Seems to have gone down market, never a salubrious looking pub the clientele now seems to match. Most were drinking macro lager so I was unsurprised at the lacklustre quality of the cask beers. Pool, darts and telly footy are the order of the day here now. A sad loss of one of Salisbury's better pubs.
