The Wig & Quill is just what you need for a large group (10) to have a meal out. We went on a Monday night so it was quiet. Service great. Food was plentiful and very good quality.

Came in for a pint and a coffee on a cold Saturday evening and was made to feel very welcome despite the fact that they had a band on and a Christmas party that night. Second time we visited the Wig and wasn't disappointed again. Well done everyone. Thanks.

Salisbury is a beautiful city especially at night during the Christmas markets. The Wig and Quill is an old traditional pub serving fantastic food. The staff was attentive and accommodating, especially for a family of 5. Prompt service, good food and very reasonably priced kids meals. Additionally, the Mull Wine was delicious.

No matter if we go just as a couple or as a larger party the service is always the same Excellent. Just a 2 minute walk from city or cathedral so perfect location in the middle of Salisbury. The best value for money meal in the city and we have tried most others.

Enjoyed a tasty lunch for a very good price in pleasant surroundings on a rainy day in Salisbury. Couldn't ask for more!

A characterful pub with sheltered courtyard. Visited as party of 6 for an early dinner before a meeting. The two who ordered fish and chips found their fish moist and beautifully cooked, contrary to the experience of some other reviewers. The oldies among us chose the over 65s set menu which offers smaller portions but is terrific value at £7.95... More

Four of us dined here, and it was a dismal experience. We were kept waiting almost 40 minutes for dinner to arrive (we just had a main course) in a medium busy dining area. Three of us had items missing from the menu, and in my case the dish was burnt and barely unrecognisable. I was greeted with surprise when... More

It was a cosy little pub which seemed to have a bit of history about it. The staff were quite welcoming if a little inattentive. The meal when it arrived was very well presented, but was not particularly hot, and while it tasted good, the Yorkshire puddings, stuffing and potatoes were all a bit soft and mushy and we're evidently...
