The Haunch of Venison, Salisbury » Haunch of Venison, Salisbury

Steeped in history, the Haunch of Venison in Salisbury was first mentioned in 1320. The pub had associations with the church (situated behind the pub) and was once a brothel. The pub's tiny bar (it's not much bigger than what you see in the photo) has some unique features including the pewter bar on the right, pewter bar top, which is believed to be the last complete bar top of its kind in England and the original gravity-fed spirit taps (also on the right). The way the beer is dispensed is pretty unique too.
