Real Ale Ray left this review about The Pheasant Inn

This building dates back to 1435 and I found the interior and small courtyard to be most interesting. The interior has low beamed ceilings, lots of exposed oak ceiling supports and partitions, which had become rounded in shape from a severe infestation of woodworm at some point. The interior was tastefully decorated and furnished and the pub had a nice relaxed atmosphere. I also found the copper top bar counter to be of interest. The new occupants have been here for only three weeks, managing the pub for Enterprise Inns. We met the manager's son, who was friendly and chatty and made us most welcome.
Two handpumps, so we went for the Hopback GFB, which was in excellent condition.

An old wooden beamed pub that has had some extreme woodworm problems in the past,however this adds to the character of the place as described below.The four hand pumps were offering up Deuchars IPA,T.T.Landlord and Hopback Summer Lightening as well as Rosie Pig Cider.Another typical pub of the area but worth the visit.

Malden man left this review about The Pheasant Inn

Another old Salisbury pub with a low and rather wonky beamed ceiling, some exposed brickwork, a split level mostly boarded floor and a pair of old fireplaces. The bar is central and unusually the counter is copper topped, one end returns around to a small intimate restaurant area with a modern feel in contrast to the building as a whole.
The overall vibe is of a food led place although my visit was outside normal eating hours so I cannot be sure, on the bar were Ringwood Best Bitter and Fortyniner, Romsey Flack Catcher (£3.70)...a bit tired, with Ringwood Boondoggle clipped as "coming soon".
All the tables had candles and the window cills had pots of plants and culinary herbs. Décor included a framed montage of the pubs of Salisbury as well as a case of shoemakers tools, the pub was once called The Crispin Inn, apparently after the patron saint of shoemakers if the plaque is to be believed.
A few pump clips to the side of the bar hint at an occasional guest policy, bar food served as well as restaurant meals, steak and ale pie with spuds, veg and gravy, £8.95, two sirloin steaks, a bottle of wine come in at £29.50.
Although I didn't feel that the beer is the star here a beer festival was advertised for 21-25th August including live music.
There are many better pubs in Salisbury but this place was fine for one.
