Just north of Salisbury city centre The Wyndham Arms began life in the 1880s as the Wyndham Hotel, and in all its fundamental respects remains unchanged.
More importantly The Wyndham Arms is the birthplace of the phenomenon that is Hop Back, for here in 1987 John Gilbert set up a small micro brewery and produced his Gilbert's First Brew (GFB), moving to Downton, to the South of Salisbury, in 1993 when the brewery's huge success demanded larger premises.
An intimate pub divided into a front parlour, by the chimney piece, a snug to one side and the bar area, it is simply decorated in the Hop back style - namely a large number of awards -- which cover the walls. The Bacchanalian figure above the door,actually that of DIONYSUS, smiling as you enter, sad as you leave, gives the brewery its logo.
"Absolutely impeccable establishment. Had been here years ago and remembered it to be good but not as good as this. Full range of Hop Back brews available. Loads of both native and continental bottles in the fridge,and the Entire Stout was on keg to nourish the drinkers of the inferior mass produced black liquids."
"Just what a pub should be - great beer and friendly staff. There's something like four separate areas, so you can feel part of the pub or keep yourself-to-yourself."
"This is my pub of choice in Salisbury."
"First class beer, welcoming and quaint."
"The perfect town pub."
