Best to tread carefully in the Bar at Salterns, for fear of upsetting the locals and the boat folk as they don't take too kindly to holidaymakers entering their territory. Frankly, the bar service is poor and is not helped by the afore mentioned locals and boat people expecting to be served ahead of us holiday makers who wanted to... More

My mum and I ate here on a Monday evening. We ate in the bar and the food was delicious. We weren't rushed and nothing was too much trouble. We both had lasagne and we shared chips and garlic bread. We were too full for pudding unfortunately as they looked good. Cannot wait to go again!

Lots of interesting activity in the harbour with the boats and kite surfers etc. The upstairs may show some signs of the age of... More

It is in a great location if you enjoy gazing at boats and people enjoying themselves on the water. Of greatest delight to us was the welcome our two... More

The staff were friendly but inexperienced ,having to check with the chef to answer simple questions about the menu . The chairs... More

I brought my friend here and we sat outside in the garden area, it was clearly busy however we did eventually find a table. The menu is extensive, and fine things seemed a little pricey. Once I ordered at the bar I was advised to pick up continents, a little disappointing that these are not brought to your table. The... More
