A special wedding anniversary treat and we were not disappointed. Excellent food, well presented, lovely location and quirky decor. Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

Me and my partner decided to have lunch at The Salthouse. A lovely place with very nice decor. The service was fine and the food was alright. Not a big choice of beers & ciders on draught. Would give it another try.
