Salon is a relaxed and informal restaurant that specialises in an ever-changing seasonal Set Menu, with all the finesse and attention to detail of fine dining, but without any of the fuss.

Our weekend brunches (Saturday & Sunday daytime) are legendary, with props in The Guardian, Time Out and Harpers Bazaar to name just a few!

We have a bar space downstairs where we serve cocktails, natural wines, beers and snacks.

Upstairs in our Dining Room we offer a 4-course Set Menu and a 7-course Extended Menu, please specify on your booking if you would like the Extended Menu.

This was our second time and we loved it just as much. Amazing quality food for such a reasonable price. So pleased this place is only down the road from us.

Absolutely superb meal! Great staff. Amazing how they create such incredible meals in such a tiny kitchen! This was our third visit and we will definitely return. Doing dry January so very grateful for the plentiful supply of lucky saint 0.5% beer!

We have had dinner at Salon many times before. When we got there before just after the New Year and got seated upstairs. The room was freezing and there was a cold draft all the way through with some people sitting at neighbouring tables with jackets and hats on.

We asked to sit downstairs in the bar area where there was space and it was slightly warmer.

There we were told that the ‘normal’ set meal was not available and we could choose only from a reduced bar menu (a subset of things on the set menu, and when ordered was served by the same person that had tended to us upstairs ...).

We chose a burrata and winter carrots starter and Gorgonzola gnocci as a main (both were part of the upstairs 5 course set menu priced at 39) but which in the same portion size cost 10 and 18 pounds respectively and unfortunately were quite disappointing in taste, especially the 5 gnocci on a gorgonzola smear that had to be searched among the onions and parsnips were overpriced for what they were.

An unnecessarily expensive evening that left us with a bit of a bad taste which is a pity as we always loved coming here and have been telling friends to do so too.

As always the welcome was friendly, the service helpful and the food imaginative and delicious. There is no take it or leave it, dishes were adjusted to meet our dietary preferences without and resistance.

Over the year this restaurant has progressed from being a pleasant but somewhat rough and ready place to eat to somewhere that produces original dishes from the freshest and most delicious ingredients.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but my sister and I had a truly delicious series of small courses, served swiftly by friendly and helpful staff and while the set menu isn't cheap, it's certainly not outrageous either. Will definitely be going back!

Lush and stylish but often gooey and sweet. ie the black pudding doesn't need orange marmalade on top. Need to be braver. Great wine and great ambience.

This place is a gem. Fantastic four or seven course tasting menu with wine pairings. Excellent value for money and brilliant fresh ingredients. The caliber of food wine and service was Michelin star level but in a very casual non-pretentious environment. This is a brilliant place for foodies without having all the pomp and circumstance. I will be suggesting this place to everyone who will listen to me!!! We will be back soon. Thanks to the team for a fantastic experience!

Not my first visit to this restaurant but it really doesn't fail to impress. Great food and really good wine pairing as expected. Service on this visit was outstanding, left feeling properly looked after and with great memories of the flavours of creative food combinations and great wine choices.

Great meal. Wonderful staff and priced fairly. I would only say the beetroot dish needed a bit more seasoning but otherwise a real treat !

Seriously good cooking. Imaginative and thoughtful combinations. The Montepulciano with the venison (with the croquettes are seriously yummy) is a good fit.We all had the lunch time menu and look forward to an evening feast. Particular thanks to the manageress who was extremely personable and the service overall which was just the right blend of friendliness combined with more than a passing knowledge of the food and especially the somewhat unusual wine list.

I would recommend them for their tapas menu and sitting downstairs for drinks but not the set menu upstairs.
