Amazing food and service. Thanks to Raz, Ross and the team for making my parents 50th wedding anniversary a day to remember x
Lovely meal with super friendly and helpful staff.
Well shielded from the elements.
The Salt Room is a great restaurant but the terrace menu is quite minimal. Our food was delicious though. Our server was very friendly and kindly filleted my fish for me, but it took a while for us to get served and we were really hungry by the time our food came!
Have wanted to try Salt Rooms for a while, so booked it for my partners birthday. Of course hospitality has been so affected that they deserve a lot of appreciation and leeway. Food was pretty nice but limited Menu at the minute. Service was okay, lots of normal steps missed: no napkins, no shell dishes, no cutlery and lack of attention to detail. Overall pretty good.
A fantastic evening with outstanding service and food. All the food was made gluten free for us. It was fantastic!!!
Lovely staff, great service. Limited but very nice menu.
Great service and food was delicious but the table we were at was squashed in the corner next to an open part and was freezing and not very atmospheric
Lovely evening, great atmosphere, food was excellent. Was fantastic to be back at the Salt Room. Restaurant managed COVID-19 restrictions well. Some teething problems with the service aspects but appreciate it's been a hard year for the industry and the restaurant only just re-opened with I imagine a new team to train.
This is not a complaint, we really enjoyed our evening and will definitely return.
Birthday lunch. Although outside, the ambience was great, it was warm enough and our needs were catered for beautifully. Professional staff and great food
Absolutely loved it, came for our 2 year anniversary and it could not have been better
Great food and fabulous service, what a wonderful team who served us
Always very good often brilliant. Felt very sorry for them yesterday since somebody presumably in the council has put ridiculous restrictions on the use of the screens claiming they were not Covid compliant. They were more Covid compliant than the majority of establishments. Plenty of air circulation but protection from the worst o& the weather.
The staff all did a brilliant job in the face of this unnecessary adversity.
Booked again next week
My husband’s birthday
Great food as always. Booze pretty pricey. But to be expected in a somewhere like this. Look forward to another visit soon. Hopefully minus the gales force winds next time.
We wanted somewhere special for an anniversary dinner and The Salt Room didn’t disappoint. The food was exquisite. Our scallops starter was possibly the best we’ve ever had and the main courses were excellent also. We also had a delightful bottle of wine. Service was top notch. We’ll definitely go back.
Although it was quite cold we were warned beforehand by the restaurant we wrapped up and enjoyed our meal. Good food, good service and will go again.
Holly & Franchesco (Sorry can't spell) were wonderful hosts - the food was amazing and we were spoilt for my Birthday! Thanks You! Zara
It was fantastic in every way even though the wind was blowing at 40mph
Really special, fantastic service and outstanding food - we've missed you so much during lockdown!
Food was excellent as always but I really must call out the superb staff who were working in the most challenging conditions and they still ensured all the customers were looked after, made to feel welcome and the service was exceptional Thank You
Excellent food and service. Impeccable seaside view.
We had an outstanding meal, totally exceeded my expectations. The staff were lovely, great wine list, delicious food. I was really happy to discover the bill was just over £50 each for two courses, drinks and tip.
Great food, great service, great location. Can’t wait to return
Initially given the coldest area despite booking well in advance
Far too cold needed heaters and blankets
Food excellent and also service but all went cold so could not eat anything
Shame as lovely restaurant and I am sure when open fully will be great
Excellent fish, we all ate differently but all very happy with choices. Good portions, friendly efficient service and a relaxed atmosphere.
Shared puddings - amazing!
Beautiful restaurant with amazing staff, food and view
The meal was very good but they really need more heaters in the outside dining area. It was very cold.
Fabulous food and service as always. The scallops were the best I have ever tasted. Staff brought us blankets after we said it was a bit draughty. The icing on the cake was when our waiter heard my friend say happy birthday to me, he checked our booking to see if he had missed anything. I hadn’t said it had been my birthday the day before but when he realised he came back from the kitchen with a plate decorated with ‘happy birthday’ in chocolate and a truffle. Thank you x
Welcoming restaurant. Unfortunately visited on very cold day and thought their outdoor heating would be better than it was. Food was generally very good except for the chips which did not appear to have been freshly cooked.
Atmosphere was warm and friendly.
Food excellent, service average-had to remind waiter for drinks ordered earlier and replacement napkins requested.
We had a voucher for the Salt Room and we had a wonderful evening spending it. The food was absolutely delicious, the wine was a recommendation and was very good. We had to wait a while for service at the beginning and end of our meal, but that didn't dampen the overall experience. A very lovely evening with a great view!
We dine here on a regular basis because the seafood and steaks are great and so is the service. On our most recent visit, the monkfish and hake dishes were both excellent! Nice selection of wines, and tasty cocktails, too. I also want to say that our waiter, Gaetano, was exceptional! His friendly, but professional service made our lunch date a wonderful experience. I hope management takes the time to acknowledge him for representing The Salt Room so well.
Considering the chill the staff had heaters and blankets ready. Service was impeccable and food was perfect, as ever.
The food as always was cooked to a high standard. Fabulous service and great atmosphere. As it was my partners birthday they added a lovely touch to her desert wishing her happy birthday! Would recommend this place to anyone. Gaetano was our waiter as he was very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Impeccable service.
It is not easy this opening up only to the outside. It was as good as it can be and I would not really want to criticise the food or the ambiance as far as it can go right now.
I would like the Salt Room to sort out their toilet facilities though ... it is very dingy in the ladies and although the sign says clearly one person at a time ... there was no way of knowing that someone was in there. Its a small thing but it matters at the moment.
Excellent food and fantastic service. Perfect wine menu..
Only small negatives was that the crab salad was very very tiny portion.
Thoroughly enjoyed a lunch with my friend yesterday for her birthday. I couldn’t fault anything apart from the restaurant knew of her birthday and it would have been nice if she had received a complimentary drink.
I always have scallops when I find them on a restaurant menu and I had the scallops to start which were perfectly cooked and some of the best I have ever had. My wife had the crab which, again, is her usual restaurant starter and she thought it outstanding. I had the halibut for main and my wife had the hake and both were cooked to perfection and very tasty. The cheeseboard was varied and plentiful and my wife's chocolate dessert was well presented and delicious. Overall this was an outstanding meal and, in my view, great value complemented by a excellent bottle of Viognier. Highly recommended.
Brilliant service, a great venue for a business meeting. The terrace is also well prepared for British weather with roof, heating and plastic walls to block cold winds. Surfboard to share is excellent.
Amazing food and so helpful with food allergens, really great service
This was our first meal out together since the restaurants reopened. It was a sunny evening & the ourdoor terrace was full. It was such a joy to be back out enjoying delicious food in good company.
Our waiter was fantastic & the food excellent. It’s a great option for outdoor dining & they even have some wind guards for when it gets blustery.
