The Salisbury is quite simply a stunning building and an incredible example of a fully functioning lavish Victorian pub. Designed and built in 1898-9 by John Cathles Hill, founder of the London Brick Company, The Salisbury retains the glorious original features of the period. Elaborate ironwork over the entrances and the beautifully abundant tiling and decorative mirrors in the porches give a taste of what is to be experienced within. A stunning stained glass skylight adorns the back room that houses an open kitchen, and ornate mosaic floors, plaster and woodwork, pillars and stone are spread throughout the vast, award winning interior. The popular pub has been used as locations for films including The Long Good Friday starring Bob Hoskins. The pub is something of a local legend and a must see building for any Victorian era pub enthusiast.
