Breakfast

Good food, French toast and bacon were great. Fish cakes weren't what we expected.. Little dry and the smoked haddock didn't seem very smoked. The sesame seeds on the costing were a strange combination.

I eat at Rocksalt around once a week, and have never had a bad experience. I love the food, the staff are very friendly and they have taken the time to get to know their customers. Will be back!

We popped in to Rocksalt with the idea of getting a quick sandwich, but were too tempted by the burgers to stick with it. Both the beef and the halloumi burger were delicious, served in a crusty bun, with chips and proper salad - the halloumi burger also had pesto and peppers in it and tasted fab! The service was...

It took 25 min to get a baked potato with cheese. meantime all my group had finished their meal I had not got mine, despite going to the counter on 3 occasions. Eventually I asked and got my money back. I will not take my group back, I am talking 20 plus people.

Rocksalt has been a regular lunch spot for me for several years, and it just gets better and better every time I go in. The mezze platter is a favourite, and the lunchtime soup and sandwich deal is a bargain. The staff are lovely, even when it gets really busy, which it often does at the usual times. Highly recommended... More

One of my favourite places to have brunch. Reasonable prices and tasty food ranging from hot dishes to cold salads. My particular Sunday brunch favourite being the French toast, bacon and maple syrup. Yum! Crispy bacon and thick eggy bread perfection drizzled in maple syrup golden goodness. Mmmmm The decor is bright and spacious. Even when it's dark outside this... More

I love the food and the service in here but the price is a little higher than the average in the area even for takeout. You are looking at around £6 for a basic salad with any additional items priced at 75p. It is nice as a treat but unfortunately, not the kind of place most can afford to eat... More

I really dig this place. I think for the price - I paid around £7 for a Turkish breakfast - that the value is great and the food is really fab. Tasty and satisfying. The atmosphere is nice too and the cakes are ace if not a slightly overpriced. TI could eat the Baklava all day long! Will definitely be... More

I visit Rocksalt often, the food is good but pricey. The staff are nice, but generally very slow. But the food is so excellent I could put up with it's shortcomings. Today, I stood around waiting for a bacon roll for 40 minutes. The staff were reasonably apologetic, but didnt seem to be in a particular hurry to help me.... More
