user reviews of the Butt of Ale, Salisbury

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Never really up to much, but it's all academic now:

"JJ Acquistions Ltd appealed against the [Wiltshire Planning] committee’s decision, and planning inspector Geoffrey Hill has ruled the pub is no longer viable and has granted permission for four houses and car parking spaces on the site. "

It WAS "an estate pub". Never tried the food, though.

A jewel of a pub? Good grief you must be joking! A very ordinary estate pub, no real ale and no customers (Wed eve Nov) when I went in, now appears to be shut. 3/10

Reopened in the last few months under new management. Jane and John offer a friendly warm welcome, and chef Paul makes the most wonderful grub. Tuesday nights food is themed, tonight was Thai, beautiful. Highly, highly recommened, booking probably advisable as their popularity grows. A jewel of a pub.

A local pub on an estate just to the North of Salisbury. It's quite ordinary, and it tends to close down quite a lot. Luckily it was open this time, though it's been shut the last few times I've tried. It has previously had a good reputation for real ale, but this weekend only had Courage Best on, which was OK.

It's off the beaten track, and although close to other ubs as the crow flies, it's a bit of a trek to get to as you have to find your way through the estate. It's also at the top of a hill, so you really need a pint when you do get there.

Hard to fit in on a crawl, but give it a go if you've got time as it's got the potential to be a really good pub if someone like this new owner gets enough trade to make a go of it.
