Haunch of Venison

1 Minster Street Salisbury SP1 1TB

Salisbury’s most celebrated pub dates back to the 12th century and still the marketeers haven’t caught on. What could have been a tacky medieval themed venue is instead a no-nonsense boozer where locals sup a pint in shoebox-sized rooms of wood panelling and old beams. There's a great choice of real ales, including local beers from the Hop Back brewery just a few miles down the road, and usually a couple of guest brews, and, if you want to eat, there's a larger, lighter restaurant upstairs, where you can feast on the likes of potted crab, ham hock terrine with homemade piccalilli and venison and bacon casserole. Two kinds of spirits too, most interestingly a ghostly lady and a phantom card cheat whose mummified hand was found interred in a wall when they knocked through to the restaurant.
