There’s a scene of the Charlie Chaplin bio pic directed by Dickie Atteborough that was filmed here.

Amazing food, especially Sunday dinners (they sell out pretty fast though). The atmosphere is great and my dog is allowed in too!
It is pretty pricey but it’s a nice pub, steeped in history with it’s multiple doorways from the class divide, and it is deserving of the price.
A favourite pub of mine!
Really fantastic old pub with huge amounts of atmosphere, great beer and space! The first time I popped in here for a beer I must have spent a good 10 minutes just exploring its cavernous interior! Some gorgeous old features here, and a really friendly atmosphere. Good selection of drinks too, and the jukebox belts out hit after hit. I will be back :)
Wow, impressive. New chef, new menu perhaps since I was in here last. I've just finished what is possibly the best plate of fish and chips I've ever eaten in London. Beautifully crispy hand cut potato chips, lovely fresh fish with a perfectly crispy batter and a nice fresh salad dressed to perfection. What more can you ask for. Rest of the menu looks pretty good too. Looks like I'll be spending more time at the local.

Not actually a Fullers pub, although you could be fooled into thinking it was one by the beer range, 4 Fullers beers and a guest. Even the lagers are vaguely interesting with a couple of offerings from Litovel. The beer was good and the staff were exceptionally friendly (they gave new drinks to a couple who had left their drinks unattended and had had them cleared up. I also was amused to hear them fielding an enquiry as to whether a shot of vodka in a pint of Discovery would be ‘noticeable’).
This is a very grand pub with a few different rooms, so not the best choice if you are looking for cosy. There seemed to some kind of ballroom dancing going on in one of the rooms. They serve food here too.
The only real drawback here is the price, with beer prices pushing the 3 and a half pound mark.
Beautiful place with a few decent beers and a lovely atmosphere only slightly tarnished by a couple of unscrupulous fellows here and there.
But it's friendly by and large, and yes, it is large indeed. There's a little bit of a mismatch here for me though - as if the place is having an identity crisis. Am I an old man pub? Do I try to exist in my same glories as I once did, or does my jukebox make me the new preserve of the norf London rockers? Am I British or European? Is that a 'disco' in my back room? Is that a sunday roast I smell? Despite this, all the elements do add up to making a rather super pub - loads of space, beautiful original features, fires in winter and a decent quiz on a Monday.
Have to say if you enjoy live bands then this place is for you on the weekend, ive ended up here a few times and not been disappointed, the open pleace where they cook food make a lovely smell around the pub, great atmosphere and loads of historical pictures giving you history about the pub and surrounding areas. Well worth a visit.
A former gin palace in the heart of Harringay, The Salisbury still echoes the decadent debauchery of it’s former years. Within it’s white and black tiled floors and wooden interior, lies a lively enclave of music, drink and gluttony. There seems to always be something going on, whether it’s the lounge Jazz sessions on a Sunday, DJ’s playing eclectic mixes on Friday and Saturday, or just the regular Monday pub quiz (£150 jackpot prizes regularly take place, but always seem to lie just beyond my reach). The atmosphere is always welcoming, whether it’s for that quiet pint while you read the Sunday papers, or when you’re having it large with a group of mates. What’s more, the food, whilst a tad pricey considering the surrounding area, is delicious and generous in portion size. The temptation, however, is always to drink your fill and move on to the many, many, good kebab shops on Green Lanes and spill spice soaked salad to your heart’s content.
Drink-wise, the Salisbury normally offers three real ales (usually ESB, London Pride and a more seasonal ale), sometimes a cider and a selection of premium eastern european lagers (Lech, Litovel) and beers (Leffe, Hoegarden). They also stock some great bottled beers from Belgium and Germany, and their wine list is short but sweet, with a good range of styles for most budgets.
After living in London for about 6 years now, I can still say that the Salisbury ranks as one of my favourite pubs. I chose to spend the last 3 New Year’s there, simply because of the friendliness of the staff and clientelle. It’s a fantastic place and hopefully will be my local for years to come…
My local, for good reason too. The combination of relaxed atmosphere, interesting decor and quality food make this an irresistable draw on Green Lanes. Rumour has it Charlie Chaplin once filmed here, and with the pub’s history and style it may well be true! They serve a good range of brews and the food is far above your average pub-fare. Furniture is a little uncomfortable (generally wooden pews or chairs) but this is a small gripe. Check it out!

The Salisbury Hotel is a truly beautiful public house; standing out as somewhat of an oasis in the middle of a bustling Turk-centric Green Lanes.
The interior of the building harks back to a bygone age, and one half expects to see Victorian gentlemen propping up the bar. Jesus & Mary Chain coming through the eclectic jukebox brings you back.
A age old pub with a wide selection of Czech lagers and Fullers ales, the added bonus of Jonathan Crisp, erm, crisps. This establishment has an interior to match any in London. Availability of food can be a little unreliable so don’t bank on there being any. Instead sit back enjoy a a good drink in perfect drinkers den.
There is a friendly atmosphere if occasionally slow service, as a weekday retreat or sunday lunch it sits perfectly. Late night on the weekend can be a little busy and service does suffer. However the prices are fair and the ale is kept very well, there’s room to breathe and I’ve never seen a hint of trouble. The Salisbury is a delightful local that suffers only from being occasionally chilly. A small sacrifice in such a beautiful setting; a King among pubs.
I played a gig here sometime last year and have to say it wasn't the best of places to play, to put it politely. Its a big place, an old hotel, with a nice interior. There are two sections to the pub, one side which is very busy, and the other, unfortunutely where I sang, not so busy. It's not a particularly music friendly place, the people aren't really interested, but besides from this, the food was lovely, traditional pub dinners, chunky chips and all. It's a fine place to go if you want to go hang out and have a pint, but I wouldn't recommend anyone playing here, or going for the live acoustic acts they sometimes have on.
Once a hotel, this place makes up in ambiance and decor for any other faults it may have. On weekends the bar is buzzing with young well-heeled professionals who have made The Salisbury their pub of choice in North London. The food is excellent and while expensive the portions are large. The quizzes are fun and challenging, without annoying the less enthusiastic. The black and white tiled attractive back room can be rented out for gigs or private events.
This place was a hotel at one point, and they’ve definitely preserved the sweeping hotel bar/lobby feel to the place; lots of tiles, wood, high ceilings and booths which gives it a cool atmosphere. I used to come here when I was feeling rich, as a student living on the Harringay ladder, and mix is probably about 50/50 students to locals. The Monday night quiz was always a bit of a laugh, and there’s some cool numbers on the jukebox. There’s a back room for food and a comedy night (can’t comment about either). I have never been able to survive more than four pints of the ‘premium’ lager here (Zubr)– I swear there’s something in it.
This pub is a classic, it has retained all of it's original victorian features frequented by an interesting unique crowd. The prices are a little expensive but it is still worth spending an evening here for the atmoshere and the small litlle leather booths which you and your friends can snuggle into and catch up!
