Fast and friendly service, excellent traditional roasts. Staff prepared to go the extra mile. Altogether a delightful Sunday afternoon in convivial yet relaxing surroundings. The refurb is great!

Had visited one Friday evening a few months ago, but was so busy, we were told it would be 30 minutes to be served, but could not wait. In Edinburgh on business and decided to go to the Salisbury Arms for lunch - good decision. Not so busy as a Friday evening, so service was prompt and with a smile.... More

Pre booked for 12:30. 30 min wait for a drink, then more than an hour for the main course. Food when it did come was good, steak pie tasty. Burger was ok, not brilliant but not terrible. Good chicken and bacon salad So - friendly and good quality but really was slow for a lunchtime

Service poor. Food poor. Totally ruined a birthday lunch. This was a family celebration for my mums 82nd birthday. She doesn't go out too often but this was chosen for the short drive and decent reviews on here. I was embarrassed at how bad it was. Again, awful

We rang to check if there was a table and were told they could squeeze us in- I wasn't expecting the lovely table and quality service we received. Our waitress was fantastic (knowledge of great gins, lovely beers and Wyverns) the food beautiful and the whole ambiance great. Thank you

Had lunch today and waited over 35 mins for soup & baked Brie - that arrived luke warm! After another 30 minutes a soggy, raw pizza arrived, my hubbie had fish cakes these were fine. Didn't have time to send back pizza & £1.50 for 6 flakes of onion - refurb is amazing so guess they need to recoup funds!

We, with our parents and 2 year old visited this wonderful establishment on Tuesday night 2/217 for dinner and I have to say everything was just perfect. We each had a steak and the wee man had a pizza, which the helpful server brought as soon as it was ready, it was a thin crust pizza and just perfect for... More

It was nice to be invited to the pre-opening at the refurbed Salisbury Arms and, as usual, it didn't dissapoint. Food was the usual high standard with what are hopefully a few new items being added to the main menu as this was the Sunday lunchtime menu we were eating from (loved the lamb). Love the refurb nice and fresh... More
