Enjoyed our meal very much. My husband was a little disappointed at the portion size of the roast and the fact that there were no roast potatoes. But the flavours were superb. Would highly recommend. Will be eating here again.

Excellent food and service. I choose this restaurant for a birthday meal as I love any fish, however my husband prefers meat. All of our fish and meat courses did not disappoint and my husband has even decided he now loves fish! Will definitely return when we are next in Brighton.

Overall a good dinner out, the staff and food were very good it was just unfortunate that we had a very loud table of four to the side of us ( a little too much alcohol) that slightly put us off, but appreciate this can happen anywhere

Appealing seaside restaurant with reasonable menu alternatives. A good wine list and ever so slightly cheaper than London.

Celebrating a special birthday - a birthday lunch for my friend and the Salt Room came up trumps. We had aperitifs and a good catch up, we were not hustled and the service was good. The star of the show was the food and all three courses - six dishes between us were delicious. We agreed that there would definitely be a next next time. Thank you

Lovely venue. Family friendly. Friendly and helpful waiters. The food was very tasty and there was a good choice on the menu. The only negative was that my pasta portion was on the small side for a main course. We will be back!

Impeccable service from a waitress who was more than happy to offer suggestions and really give us a feel for the menu before we ordered. She made sure that our drinks were always topped up and we were enjoying our food.

The food itself was amazing and extremely high quality. The Monkfish sharing main was excellent!

All in all, a wonderful evening - we definitely hope to return to the Salt Room!

Not the biggest menu, but everything on it sounded appetising. The food we chose was delicious and very reasonably priced. The staff were professional, friendly and attentive. The setting was welcoming, upmarket and comfortable. ‘Twas very pleasant meal.

My friend & I enjoyed 2 courses and a glass of wine for £20 on a wet windy day. The mackerel pate with ricotta and sour dough was particularly delicious.

Everything was good except the mussels which were stringy and inedible (we did inform the server), luckily they were just an accompaniment to our main which was the barbecued monkfish which was very good

My first time here for my partner's birthday treat. When I looked at the menu on-line it looked a bit pricey. But the portion sizes are large and the additional touches to the menu made it feel luxurious and special. We had the Surfboard which was an abundance of fresh shellfish. The prawns were HUGE and perfectly cooked. We couldn't finish it all. Very good value I thought. Service excellent, a really busy Saturday night but we never had to refill our own glasses. Will definitely go again.

The food was outstanding and our waitress was very attentive. However, I must say we have waited for our food for at least 40 minutes. It was a Saturday night so I guess it’s due to the business of the night.

Always a delight to come to the Salt Room, a feeling clearly shared by other diners : there is a real atmosphere of enjoyment which the servers do their part in creating by their cheerful, helpful attitude.
Sadly we cannot give a detailed appreciation of the whole menu because the 'Surfboard' always beguiles us into choosing it and then we have no room for anything else. It is a simple dish and delicious.
Our one grumble is that they still don't offer non-alcoholic beer despite the growing trend elsewhere. But my husband seems to like the house lemonade with mint.

I had booked The Salt Room for a catch up with the parents of my best friend. I booked it with expectations of a quality meal with service to match, knowing that they appreciate excellent food and service. I arrived in the pouring rain, went to hand my coat (a bulky winter parka) to the waiter who went to take it and then said "Oh actually there is a coat hook behind your table" - I thought this was pretty odd, but accepted it. I wish I hadn't as when I got there I had to negotiated around my companions who were already seated and also arrived to greet them holding a dripping coat - quite frankly, it was embarrassing! Service didn't improve with waiter being unable to answer even simple questions about the menu and what dishes comprised, even when one diner stated an allergy. I would never return based on this experience and will also be warning colleagues to avoid for business lunches as the whole experience opens you up to total embarrassment if you've been asked to recommend somewhere. I would be embarrassed at this level of service at a run-of-the-mill chain, for somewhere that seems to charge as though it is superior to this, it is beyond embarrassing.

We shared the turbot (special of the day) which was absolutely lovely and beautifully cooked. The white widow cocktail after dinner went down well and the cheese board had a good selection with savouries. Always a very pleasant and enjoyable meal. Love this restaurant! Staff as always helpful and attentive
