Tonight we visited the back bar of The Salisbury for a light supper with friends. Hertford is busy and thrumming with young people on a Friday and it was nice to find a place where we weren't greeted as 'guys' and told our order was 'no problem'. Mind you, that was probably because the waiters' English speaking skills wouldn't reach... More

Had late lunch here arriving mid Sunday afternoon, ate in the Bar Area, still very busy but clean and tidy, found a table, nice waiter showed us the specials on offer. We went for the steak pie and steak and kidney pudding, both absolutely delicious, couldn't fault surroundings, service or food so definately be coming back.

Disappointed by Ham Hock Terrine served with..........toast......well do it said on the menu. When I asked the waitress that was it not to have been served with toast, she positively assured me that it was not. I then asked why it was on the menu, and of not, then to mention it to the chef or manager. However, I get... More

Had our works Christmas meal here. The food was fantastic, came out really hot and was delicious. Unfortunately the waitressing staff did not seem to be in a very festive mood!

We have regularly had our works Christmas party at The Salisbury as it has always been very good. This year the consensus was the standard had dropped a bit on previous years. It's still good but not as good. Small things such as the cheese board not being as good. The roast potatoes were poor, probably as were the last... More

I liked the outside on a previous visit and the fact that there was a sign saying free parking for residents. It was fully booked on my last visit, but as I had to go down on a Sunday night I was lucky to get a deal with breakfast. Parking great. Friendliness fab. Room great too until it was time... More

Lovely old hotel right in the middle of the historic town on Hertford. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing, the best thing about here is the absolutely lovely helpful friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Good bar food served at table as well as in restaurant . A surprise Chinese dish among English stalwarts. The ambience captures the spirit of the 1950s and the bars remain mercifully unrestored . The restaurant in contrast is stark although it retains its horn motif light fittings. An historic feel overall.

Very old fashioned but has a quaint feel about the bar area. Food is delish and is always nice with a changing chalk board. (no garden for summer drinks)
