Called into this pub, which is also a hotel, for lunch whilst in Salisbury. It was much larger inside than it looked from outside. There were plenty of tables both on the ground floor and upstairs. The toilets are also upstairs. You need to find a table and once you have a table number you can order at the bar....

Dear nigelr120, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. As our building was constructed in 1874, our Hotel does include the features of that era, such as beamed ceilings and a few quirky corridors. Although we love our historical building located in an equally historic medieval City, we understand that some guests require rooms which are...

Comfortable bed, clean and tidy room, convenient location as central to all tourist attractions and restaurants. Hotel food is good with pleasant views over the river. Air conditioning is a welcome bonus.

Great location, a Wetherspoon pub by the river. Very busy, the food was nicely presented and quickly served after ordering. The place is quite big, and has plenty of seats inside and out. It's just a short walk away from the cathedral.

Very clean, comfortable room in the middle of the town. Expected noise from the street and oub due to the location, but was unpleasantly surprised by just how well sound travelled between rooms and in from the corridor. Also was not delighted by the gratuitous 7am wake-up call we got on Sunday! Apparently most likely an error by the phone...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The site of this Wetherspoon pub has been occupied by an inn since the 15th century. By c1520, it was known as the King's Head, and it retained that name until it was rebuilt in the 1880s. The County Hotel was, itself, a change of name some time during the 1880s or 1890s. Before then, it was the Kings Head and Brewery. We have 33 individual bedrooms. All of our rooms are en suite and include tea- and coffee-making facilities, air conditioning, a hair dryer, TV and free Wi-Fi, also available in the pub. Please be aware that we are a Lloyds No 1 bar so we will be playing music in the pub from Thursday to Saturday nights. Limited quiet rooms are available so please telephone in advance to request one. We have no onsite parking but there is a city centre car park we recommend that is only a 3-5 minute walk away. You are able to stop on the pub entrance to unload your luggage before you go and park. ... more   less
