Visited here with the family for unplanned Sunday afternoon drinks and snacks. There is a great selection of drinks especially local craft ales and cocktails which we were happy to work our way through. Along with them we had a selection of bar snacks. Food was good especially the boneless wings and triple cooked chips. We didn't feel the cheeseboard... More

I went there with my husband last weekend. Lovely place and staff were amazing, friendly and went out of their way to please us. We were late for dinner and the chef even put on a dinner for us after serving time! Fry in morning is delicious!

We visited the hotel previously in 09 and we were very disappointed so when there was a fab online discount site offering it we thought we would chance our luck. The hotel has changed in so many ways that it is like a different place. Reception and bar staff were welcoming. Rooms are what is expected from a boutique hotel... More

Although we did not stay here myself and partner could not wait to see it as we had heard so much about it. We called in for a relaxing drink to find the very small lounge area full so we went directly to bar area My partner ordered 2 glasses of red wine and as there were lots of free... More

Visited Salty Dog with grand daughter and son home for flying visit. Having dined here when named the Sands years ago when kids were young the immediate impression was very cheering. Table was ready in short while and the food was excellent and enjoyed by our family. Coco, 4 years old ate all her sausages and gravy. Quite expensive but... More

My partner and I popped in for lunch last week. We were able to change the menu, making a main dinner into a lunch size for half the price. (The main portions are huge and def value for money.) We both ordered the goats cheese linguine, it was like grown up mac and cheese (one of our favs!). The keen... More

This rustic seaside hotel has a certain amount of old fashioned charm with a modern twist and being sea fronting it is in a great location. It was a shame that our room faced away from the seafront as it was disappointing to face the walls of the rear of the property but as this was a Bank holiday weekend... More

Visited the Salty Dog numerous times on business and had some fantastic meals, unfortunately our recent visit was spoilt due to poor quality (rib-eye) steak, which was as tough as old boots. On other occasions our rib-eye was perfect, so something needs to be done to rectify this as fast? Three rib-eye steaks ordered to be cooked three different ways... More
