The Salt Room
Recent winner of the Seafish UK Restaurant of the Year 2017 our menu champions sustainability and showcases the very best local produce.
Continuing the ethos of sharing plates like our sister restaurant, The Coal Shed, our menu champions sustainability and showcases the very best local produce.
Located opposite Brighton’s West Pier, our seaside restaurant has the best sea views which can be enjoyed from our glass fronted mezzanine or for alfresco dining on our shaded terrace. The Private Dining Room allows for a larger party to enjoy the views and menu in style.
We had a lovely night with wonderful food and service and atmosphere. What more can you ask for!
My partner and I looked up after tasting the mains, locked eyes and exclaimed a simple, simultaneous, wow. Such craft and skill to elevate the humble fish to such epicurean delights.
The Sole was never overpowered by the flavour packed sauce, if it was a sauce, more a clever side stew I guess. Delicate and generous enough to let the fish shine through, so fresh, so elegant.
It's a lovely space and clearly a go to must in Brighton.
Fabulous place! Perfect location, amazing food, brilliant service, the lady who served us was incredible, knowledgeable, professional and friendly.
I don't think the food is as good as it used to be. We had the sharing platter roast and although the meat and gravy was lovely, the potatoes were dry. We also had the beside the sea dessert, which is their signature dessert priced at £18 for two. We've had this before, but sadly this time around it didn't even come close to how good it used to be. I'd go as far to say it was a bit stale in terms of some of the sweets. Kids eat free under 7 and in all honesty the food was good for our little one. The service was exceptional. Just such a shame about our meal.
An amazing place good food professional staff that really look after you, nothing is to much. With out question the best place to have an evening and eat some wonderful food !!!
A treat meal and probably the best dining experience in Brighton. Attention to detail impressive, imaginative and flavoursome food, very good wine selection and excellent advice from a knowledgeable sommelier.
Had an amazing afternoon tea on a busy Saturday with the dining room full. Brilliant food, lovely atmosphere and nice to see so many happy staff working.
Food was amazing, atmosphere was great and the service was fantastic. Will definitely go back!
Excellent service, very good food, great wine - really enjoyed it!
Fabulous food and service
Great food and service. However let down by the awful chips. I really dislike fat chips but these were not even cooked nicely please can you do thin chips.
Went to the Salt Room to celebrate hubbys birthday and were fortunate to be able to sit outside as it was a warm sunny day.
We had lunch there which was perfect, gorgeous varied menu and lovely service, attentive but not imposing and not rushed, I had the monkfish which was exceptional and hubby had the halibut, we had starters too and a Tour of the Pier which was great fun although very sweet - not a criticism but just beware.....
We both said we would definitely go back and the blankets provided outside if it gets chilly are very welcomed.
Had a really lovely time, thank you.
The Salt Room doesn't disappoint. Great seafood served in relaxed but elegant surroundings.
We are a family of 4 with young kids. It was ok.
Had a lovely evening with friends and family. Good food and excellent service.
Incredible dishes with an amazing view. Highly recommended for anyone who loves seafood. Only suggestion is for better disability access - the front doors where extremely heavy to get through.
An early mistake with our order was rectified immediately and graciously.
Our waiter Ross was very attentive, professional and warm as were the other members of the team, most importantly the fish was superb, presented and cooked perfectly which is no small feat with a full terrace on a busy Saturday lunch. Really worth trying the Basque wine also, all in all a lovely and memorable afternoon well spent, a “must do” in Brighton.
Food & service were exceptional as always, Aga was very informative & looked after us fabulously. Thank you.
Shan’t be coming back. Food was mediocre, tables were sticky and first bottle of wine ( which was changed foc. ) was not very palatable . We mentioned our dissatisfaction to the staff who were sympathetic and agreed that the decor was shabby made no comment on the food and were very obliging in changing the wine . For the price I would have expected a far better meals. Probably the worst we have had in Brighton
Good seafood. The seafood platter was fresh and delicious. It was the second time we came. The steak last time was really good but this time was a let down, lots of tendons! Interestingly though there is no lobster in the platter nor the menu at all. Desserts were good too. Nice presentation, nice to the eyes and to the taste buds.
The only thing I can say which weren’t to my taste were the chips, bit chunky but other than that superb
Brilliant food and excellent professional service from our waiter Silvester, would recommend dining there to anyone.
A very good restaurant, great food/service and top location.
Not sure it justifies its prices to be honest. Food was not cold enough to complain but not really hot either. I didn't find it particularly inspiring
This was one of the best meals my wife and I have had for a while. We started with a couple of King prawns each and then had the sharing roast (beef sirloin) and it was delicious. We'd recommend the restaurant to anyone who's thinking of visiting Brighton. The service was attentive without being fussy, too. All in all, an excellent meal.
We were four people celebrating my daughter's 20th Birthday. The Salt Room has the Sunday roast in Brighton! We had two sharing roasts and they were wonderful- the meat was so tasty and the vegetables were perfect, as was the home made horse radish sauce. The desserts are an experience in themselves, especially the sharing plate 'taste of the Pier'.
Lovely service as always-attentive, friendly but unintrusive. Ambience is always lovely too.
Thanks The Salt Room!
The Salt Room is an absolute treat. We had the surfboard as a main course with bread and seaweed butter and we finished it off with the dessert platter. Everything was exceptional. I can honestly say that it is the best meal I have ever had.
Holly our server was great, attentive, friendly but not intrusive. We really enjoyed our meals, the seafood is high quality. The salt-baked bream was a highlight, but all of the fish was amazing. The one little issue we had was quickly and politely corrected and taken off the bill.
Incredible food, might not be your everyday seafood restaurant in terms of price but there’s a reason for that
We are regulars at the salt room and never had a bad meal always tip top as is the service.Perry
Great place lovely atmosphere
We booked a celebration meal for my birthday with my parents and partner. My parents order fish which came out severely undercooked. We asked for it to be sent back and they sent out a ‘warmed up’ version which I thought was horrendous as you can get seriously ill.
No apologies were given and the service was not up to the standards given that the food and drinks are very expensive.
This is not the first time they have served uncooked fish so be warned!! Plenty of better places to go in Brighton.
Thank you for your recent visit to The Salt Room and feedback. I am really disappointed to hear about your experience. I can assure you no fish would be served undercooked to a level that compromises H&S , but if the customers wants something to be cooked further we are always happy to do so, everything is cooked from fresh. I was on leave last week, I would welcome a direct email with further information regarding your visit, email@example.com. Olivia
Food was delicious but portions are small which makes sides necessary.
it was our first visit to the Salt Room and had come highly recommended, it did not disappoint, absolutely fabulous.
The Salt Room is always reliably excellent. Great food, lovely service and cool cocktails. Never lets us down.
Very good food and service was good. Not cheap but well worth it. The sharing platter of shellfish was very good. Probably don’t need a main as well.
Excellent food. Warm and friendly service. We had a lovely sunny day with a beautiful visa of the sea. Highly recommend this place especially for fish lovers. I had the sea bass on the bone ... delicious
Very good , charming, well informed service from the staff which included an absolutley seamless shift changover; this was a late lunch.
Most excellent food very well presented ambiance also good
