Both food and service were great though a bit pricey. However I’m getting increasingly fed up with 21 groups policy regarding sharing tips with staff. I strongly suspect that it’s not shared solely amongst who customers mean for it to go to - ie the front of house and kitchen staff and I suspect an undue proportion gets distributed amongst management.

One word... outstanding!
Everything from the food to the service to the ambience was faultless.
Staff were friendly and attentive organised a lovely cake for my mums birthday. We had the hot shellfish and chorizo platter which was to die for and beautiful fresh oysters.
Thank you for a wonderful day, can’t wait for our next visit!

Ceviche was invigorating. Scallops soft and infused with delicate flavours. Halibut and hake were tender and flavoursome. All good and consumed with a chilled white.

This was my first visit to the restaurant. It had been recommended by my daughter.

The food was delicious. However I made the mistake of changing my choice of main course from mussels to scallops. The scallops were delicious however there were only two on the plate. (It was on the light bite menu), nevertheless I did not expect the portion to be so small. My friend had the mussels some of which he shared with me. I must add they were some of the tastiest and cleanest mussels I’ve tasted. But I shall be back.

Our return to Saltwater Fish (and Porterhouse Steak) was everything we had imagined during our enforced absence. Professional and friendly team. The very best and freshest ingredients beautifully prepared, cooked and served. The two hour round trip is worth it for a weekly visit. Thanks to all concerned and Terry the Boss for keeping it going.

An excellent place to go if you love your fish. They really know how to choose their fish AND cook it to perfection.
Service is excellent.
A little pricey but a lovely treat, now and again.

You must try the seafood cocktail. Everything fresh and prepared in front of you, it was interesting to see the mussels and oysters being prepared- looked like alot of hard work. We also had lovely chat with the Manager. You can see why the place is fully booked.

As always the food and service was excellent. Loved the friendliness of the staff and the whole set up that is Saltwater Fish Company.
We were the last two diners so had staff to chat to and their total attention.
The staff were finishing off and it was good to see how thoroughly they cleaned .t was our first meal out since lockdown it was a talking point

The essence of this restaurant for us is that it sources first class seafood locally and cooks it superbly. It also offers raw and cured options, sometimes from seas further afield. It beats London's top fish restaurants.
