Always a pleasure and a treat to visit the Saltwater fish company.
The attention to detail on cooking and presentation of the food was superb. The staff are always pleasant and accommodating.

My one comment would be to remove 2 seats at the counter. In current times more space is required between guests. I did feel uncomfortable with how close diners were.

Relaxed atmosphere, great to sit at the bar & watch food being prepared. Food is fab but not cheap. Staff are friendly & service is efficient. They accommodated us earlier than our booking with no fuss. Not the place to go if you are looking for an intimate meal for 2 but great for everything else. We’ve been a couple of times recently and will certainly be back

Not what I’d usually go for but thoroughly enjoyable , had a lobster roll and fries which worked out at about £33 , hardly expensive. My partner went for 3 very large prawns in a Masala type sauce , she certainly enjoyed those , the she finished off with Crème Brûlée. We’d wanted to try a couple of Oysters in the normal manner but ended up having cooked ones in butter/ Mayo which were nice anyway . Overall I’d offer a good 9/10 , my only issue was you didn’t have a lot of room to eat , maybe one less seating space at the counter , this would offer more customer comfort, that was my only issue . Good , service , staff and variety for the sea food lover was all excellent . Thank you .

Delicious curried scollop perfectly cooked and the most sublime lobster roll, perfectly accompanied by a delightful garlic oil. This is my second time visiting and certainly won’t be the last.

We really enjoyed our mixed fish grill. The fish was tasty and well cooked. They were very busy, the girls seemed rushed off their feet.
