Recenty sold and rebranded as part of the Bill'S chain - old building imaginatively restored, plenty of seating and eating areas, and an outdoor courtyard for later in the year (we hope!) Sensible prices, good friendly service. Open later than many Salisbury eateries, so allover good news!

When I was staying in Salisbury with my daughter, we had a late lunch here whilst out on a shopping spree. The food was good and the staff helpful so I was saddened to learn they have all been made redundant and another traditional pub is to be lost for ever!

Although hopes had been raised that this would re-open (it was, after all, a very good quality pub), it is now clear that it is to be a "Bill's Delicatessen and Café" from Nov. 2013. Although Bill's is good, it is no substitute for a valued public house. Bill's will be familiar to people from Brighton for its quality food and good coffee (an alternative to the ubiquitous formula-driven Starbucks and Costas). This is a pub that will be missed, regardless of how well Bill's does.

Ring before attending, this pub has now closed for refurbishment/ redevelopment, probably to be replaced with a place a shadow of its former self.

We visited for a meal on 15 August. Staff were very helpful and pleasant, surprisingly so as the pub is closing down for refurbishment on Saturday and they had all been made redundant.

Not much point in rating the food as no doubt all will be completely different when/if the place reopens.

Do hope that the refurbishment will not spoil what is currently a vey interesting interior.
