The Salisbury

The Salisbury

90, St. Martins Lane, Leicester Square, London, WC2N 4AP
Nearest Tube Station-----Leicester Square:Northern and Piccadilly Lines
Victorian extravagance touch is seen in ''The Salisbury".My visit found the place with an agreeable atmosphere, very good service and a surprisingly mixed crowd, i didn't begrudge propping up the bar for a pint.. The very name of this pub is the part of the fabric of British History And reaches back to Robert Cecil, the first Earl of A Salisbury who is said to have been the wisest man in Tudor Polities .The most important thing to note here is that--- The Salisbury has the distinction of holding the Platinum Award in recognition of quality of its beer. The interior is a wonder of etched glass, mirrors and mahogany. Coupled with some charming ornate art Noumea light fittings, you begin to appreciate there aren't many of these once commonplace pubs left in such good nick.The third Marquis of Salisbury. Queen Victoria"s favorite Prime Minister ,from whom the site of tavern was orinally leased in 1892..Prior to this the pub had been known as the Coach& Horses and Ben Count"s headland famous for promoting price fighting.
Food: Sub-standard. Cold, undercooked chips. Compressed, factory burgers loaded with garlic. Tomatoes grown and subsequently sliced way too long before they are served. Fish thick with batter fried to indigestible heaviness. Fried onion rings so tough that they would not crumble if you stood on them

(The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
