SERVING WEARY TRAVELLERS Since - at least! - the 17th century
The Saluation’s history is vast and parts of the building can be traced back to the 17th century, although in all likelihood the pub as it stands now was built on top of an existing inn.
Standing next to the Gibraltar tollgate, the Salutation stands next to the Roman Road between Lincoln and Exeter - the Fosse Way.
Across the road from the Inn stood Castle Combe's hanging tree where executions would have taken place in the 17th, 18th and 19th century.
The Salutation is within easy reach of the M4. Only 20 minutes from Bath and half an hour from Bristol, Cirencester and Swindon it remains an important crossroads for those seeking a break from the well-travelled paths.
