I was part of table of 7, we were in the front part of the restaurant which was a shame as the main restaurant has more atmosphere. The service was great. The menu was interesting but perhaps didn't offer quite enough choice or variety. I ended up choosing a vegetarian main - curried aubergines with yoghurt dressing which was tasty.... More

We had a party of 9 pre booked on a Sunday in December. As the Salthouse is popular it is always an idea to book. For larger parties the seating is re arranged usually in a corner or along a back wall, which is no problem. The Decor of the restaurant is modern, it is not particularly spacious but does... More

Had a very pleasant lunch here (a very late treat for my birthday last year). Started with some grilled mackerel with orange, a decent chunk of fish perfectly cooked, off-set nicely by the orange. Followed with a main of local pork loin, which was also perfectly cooked and tender. Some nice dessert and pleasant wines including some unusual Argentine fizz.... More

Always usually order the same thing and somehow it always tastes different. Good different. A little on the pricey side but worth it.

My partner chose the Salthouse Eaterie as the venue for my surprise birthday party. 12 people were easily accommodated for and although we all only had two courses, everyone left very full. The lamb in particular was beautifully presented and very well cooked. The waitstaff were polite and attentive. All in all, a good trip and I would recommend to... More

A group of us went for lunch and we found it over-priced, lack of atmosphere, staff aloof, and food was OK. Nothing special and we won't be rushing back!

We ate here 3 times whilst we stayed at the hotel, staff are polite but useless! It's a shame as the lamb we had for dinner was excellent! Really lacking any decent front of house staff, during our 3 visits to the resturant not once were we asked if we would like any more drinks!! Even asking for the wine... More

Had 3 course meal at Salthouse Eatery but very disappointed by slow service, luke warm soup and roast not great. Given it wasnt busy until 2 hours after we arrived it took 20 mins to get starter order taken.
