Great plates from start to end. You know when you've found a decent place when the sides are as exciting as the mains. Quite pricey but worth every penny.

High quality food, interesting modern menu, speedy service and a nice vibe. Would recommend for a special occasion as it’s a bit pricy.

The Salt Room is always great, the food is delicious and and very pleasing presented. The staff is very friendly and professional. We sat on the terrace which was lovely in the very warm weather. Everything is clean and the all the rules about social distance was in place. Have been coming to the Salt Room since it open, just wish I lived closer so we could go more often. Highly recommended the Salt Room.

An old regular, I stopped going before Covid when a delicately flavoured expensive fish, was utterly ruined by a huge pile of burnt sweet corn, etc. Advertised as coming with a bouillabaisse, this was completely lost in the burnt corn. Other things were piled on the fish but I've erased it from my mind. On that occasion, the starter wasn't cooked enough; raw batter, and the pudding was rock solid chocolate torte; impossible to put a fork into.

This being my first visit since or anywhere after Covid, I hoped for better. My tempura starter was delicious. The lemon sole was over cooked and again, the delicate flavour of the fish utterly lost in a great pile of what must have been, half a jar of capers and at least 2 large chopped gherkins, WITH curry oil???? Why? I refused the free champagne and pudding; so disappointed. I note that the manager used to run Terre a Terre and perhaps too much emphasis on non meat/fish ingredients is being encouraged. This is just not required.

We were so well looked after on our first night out since lockdown. I wasn't sure why nobody was wearing a mask but once you're in a space with so many other people I suppose that's irrelevant. Great service and food. We'll be back!

Delicious food and cocktails .
Service was excellent, with little waiting time, especially when you want another glass of wine mid meal.
The restaurant was a little noisy as there aren’t many soft furnishings to absorb the sound, but we still had a wonderful time.

This was our second visit (our first was about 3 years before). Even though it was a different chef this time around, the food was to the same excellent standard.
Definitely one to try, you won't be disappointed.

Lovely food, excellent friendly service, chilled atmosphere.

Very lovely staff at the Salt room. Food main course was a little disappointing on this occasion as we have eaten here before and it was excellent. However when we mentioned it to the waitress, the manager came over and told us he had removed the cost from our bill. And then dessert was amazing so it more than made up for an overly salty steak. Thanks for the great service.
