Updated 25 June 2012. Oiginal story 26 January 2010
3 Belgian beers at the Salisbury
Time Square is on Sliema's Tower road, next to the landmark Preluna Hotel. The long serving manager and Manchester United fan George Gatt had managed Time Square for as long as we can remember. George had always offered a wider beer choice than most Malta bars, and was one of the first in Malta to offer our Van Steenberge beer. That was until the owners of the building which also housed a hotel and a Bulgarian restaurant put the building up for sale, and closed the Pub. (it has since reopened)
But George and Lesley are back in business as "landlord and landlady" of the Salisbury Arms in Triq Il-Kbir. From Time Square, walk up the street to the right. At the end on the opposite side of the road is Scotts supermarket. turn left and immediately right into Triq Il-Kbir. Pass the Palace hotel on the right and Stella Maris church on the left and you will soon see the Salisbury on the same side of the road as the Palace.
Its now very much a family business with 3 generations all chipping in behind the bar. The Salisbury Arms is furnished in the style of a traditional English local with breweriana, Manchester United memoriabilia, pictures of Malta and local new stories all adourning the walls. The Salisbury Arms is open every day except Monday until til late and shows live football on 3 screens.
A wide range of food is available too - from sandwiches andburgers,to a wide range of pasta dishes, salads, English breakfast and Sunday lunch. Main courses also include swordfish with the traditional Maltese sauce and a range of steak dishes including Angus Ribeye.
The Salisbury Arms offers 3 Belgian Ales, Van Steenberge's Bruegel and Augustijn Blond, and Duvel - so offering beers at 5, 7 and 8.5%. It also stocks Erdinger Wheat Beer and Farsons excellent new Simonds Special Amber Ale
