My faith in pubs in the Wiltshire countryside has been restored. Pitton is a lovely village with great walks around it and this pub with its traditional skittle alley was a great place to finish. Helped by some great food and beer and lovely staff.

Atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the staff friendly. Our starters of chicken liver parfait and mussels in cream and white wine were light and tasty. However, the main courses were far too big and heavy. My partner's pork belly on a bed of chorizo and chickpeas would have fed a family of four for a week; at least our server offered to pack it up so that we could take it home. My fish and chips with mushy peas, was a beautiful lump of deep fried hake, again far too large a portion, wedges and crushed petit pois. NB: these are NOT mushy peas. The desserts were unremarkable.
A good selection of beers was available.

We went here twice here in August for lunch. Both times my partner had the fish cakes and I had the pork belly and then the crayfish salad. All were excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. A cut above the average pub grub. It has recently changed hands so we hope the quality will be maintained. It is also a gorgeous old pub and feels homely.

Villages surrounding Salisbury typically have a excellent pubs, which are popular and welcoming. The Silver Plough in Pitton is no exception. Located right in the heart of the pretty village, there is bags of outside seating for hot and sunny days, but pleasant interior too, if the weather is less than clement. Very friendly staff and nice varied menu that caters for the ravenous , as well as those with less hearty appetites. Burgers are excellent and varied and the snack sizes verge of the extremely generous, capable of satisfying the hungriest of diners. Good range of Hall and Woodhouse beers. always full of flavour and offering variety.
Great walks in the area mean that a lunch and a drink can be enjoyed without feeling guilty about calorie intake. Another pub to add to the list of regular haunts in the Wiltshire countryside.

The name "silver plough " mentioned in conversation anywhere in a fifteen mile radius of the pub and people would acknowledge a superior place to go
Having visited last Wednesday with friends I had not seen for eight years it seemed a special halfway house meeting point.
Unfortunately the extremely limited menue was an A4 well used piece of paper with a very disappointing list of expensive but below average findings
Two of us had ham eggs and chips, how simple? A massive single slice of 30% fat and the rest tough and gristle with six skin on wedges, the other two wanting vegetarian options were told we can do you an omelette or you can have chick peas with goats cheese, with insulting results
The desert was nice but for six pounds was way over priced
Sorry but all Wetherspoons will put you to shame and for £89.00 we could go out twice and have change, I hope the new owners wake up to this!!
