Haunch of Venison ★★☆
An atmospheric historic pub that feels every inch of its 700 years and serves excellent food to boot
The Haunch of Venison has been a Salisbury institution since 1320, a classic chophouse with tasty roasts and grilled meats.
Much of the interior dates to the 15C or 18C, and the bar area itself is wonderfully historic, with one of the few pewter countertops remaining in England, seven gravity-fed spirit taps dating back to 1909, and a "Horsebox," or "Ladies Snug," with a door to allow women to drink here unmolested. (Local legend also claims that this tiny, private room was usued by Churchill and Eisenhower to plan D-Day.)
