Professional yet very welcoming and friendly staff. Seated immediately. Excellent service throughout.
Octopus starter was exceptional as was the Dover Sole. Indeed all the dishes were very well prepared and presented. They tasted great.
Would certainly recommend this restaurant and would most certainly return.

The Salt House is conveniently located between The Hilton and The Grand so an easy choice. However, the service and the food let it down in my opinion. Even taking into account the time of Covid the service could have been friendlier and the food certainly could have been much better.

Great food.
Ask for a table near the front windows. Ours was at the back right next to the waiter station so not ideal. Lots of clattering of cutlery

we were seated at the table next to ladies toilet and staff kitchen area so it was busy, always someone queuing given only one in, one out of the toilet. The table next to us had 6 people and was extremely loud at times, so much so we couldn't hear each other. Pity because the food and service was excellent. That said, I notice the food and drinks/cocktail menu were substantially reduced from previous experience, I assume due to COVID which was a shame. In future I would book directly with the restaurant in order to ensure a better table location

Kids fish was served with curry flavour batter - I thought it was delicious but neither child would touch it - kids food should be served plain without unusual flavours. So from a quite expensive kids meal all they ate was a plate of chips and a blob of icecream.
Thr adults had the Sunday roast which was delicious apart from being served with boiled potatoes rather that the advertised potatoes.
Over all quite nice but not worthy of the price tag.

Starter of Sour dough bread was an inedible brick . The slow cooked egg was jelly like and unappetising and not recommended but maybe im fussy. Fish and chips very disappointing. Fish was poor quality watery and bland. The french fries (not chips) were very greasy and salty and peas tasteless. We didnt bother with desert

Our Waiter was ok but we didn’t feel particularly that any big the staff were bothered, in fact when I asked a waiter if we could have four plates (we were sharing a desert) it felt like he was going us a huge favour. It was quite full and very noisy. The food was ok but we all felt overpriced.

My partner and I had an okay evening at the Salt Room. Our food was very tasty and nicely presented - particularly the fish platter. However, the ambience was lacking (no music playing when we arrived and other tables still being prepped). We also found it to be fairly pricey.

The Salt Room was a lovely setting and we had a table with lovely sea views. Each course was well presented. We both had the monkfish main which was well worth it. Our server was also very charming despite having to communicate through a mask.

For a plate costing £30 a head, it could have been presented a little better. We both had the sharing dish but didn’t see the mussels underneath everything else. The little cigalis looking shellfish are used to flavour stocks with in the Mediterranean as there is no substance to them. You get very little once peeled. Bit disappointed. Great service though.

Disappointed in the sharing roast, noted on the menu as on the bone however received the meat sliced up off the bone. Also came almost well done when we asked for medium/rare as that was suggested. Overall wasn’t as good as we were expecting. Wouldn’t return for a roast or recommend this to friends and family. Shame.

The food was very good as was the service. The only thing that stops me from giving this 5 stars was the wine. We ordered the Malbec which turned out to be a 2019 which was just a bit too young for our taste. We would happily pay more for good wine so would like to suggest a little more choice on good wines please.

The food is beautiful here and really attentive service too! Lots of effort made to make sure we enjoyed our meal and we were given the option to try wine so we could make sure we liked it before buying. Couldn’t recommend more! Will definitely visit again. It was quite loud and hard to hear especially with masks but the waiters did everything they could to help us communicate better!

WE came on Sunday and unfortunately the roast had already sold out even though we were there at 18:30 and so we shared the sea bass which was lovely but not enough for two people. We went to Nandos after as we were still hungry. I've been looking forward to going to your restaurant for such a long time so it was a little disappointing.
