We visited here on 30 August with our friends and were booked in for an early dinner as the restaurant, we were told, would be busy later (good advice!). We had a drink outside first (back of Duke of Cumberland pub) and weren't rushed in for our dinner - even though our booking was early .... The waitress was lovely... More

We have just arrived home from an evening at The Salt Marsh; our first visit. There are mixed reviews about this place, but we were extremely pleased. No doubt we will be back! My wife wasn't keen on the rose wine she had and they then came straight over and opened three BRAND NEW bottles of wine for us to... More

Despite anything else anyone might say about Salt Marsh the food is gorgeous, tasty and you get good sized portions. Yes it's a bit dishevelled and there aren't any menus but there is a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and the food ingredients are good quality. Loved it!

We walked in towards the restaurant and was told we were to sit in the pub as they wasn't busy enough to open the restaurant. The table was sticky and just wasn't what we wanted for a birthday meal. The waitress came over after a while of waiting and apologised that she didn't get over sooner, but it was because... More

We booked here a couple of hours before arriving having been informed how nice the food was. When we did arrive at the pub it was very quite and as we were walking through to the restaurant we were called back by a rather disheveled looking lady to say that the restaurant was closed and that we we're being placed...

Delicious fresh local food, fantastic atmosphere and venue, freindly staff. Great evening out, something a little unusual. Definitely my new favourite venue. Will recommend to all. Love this little gem!

After one excellent and one disappointing meal last year, we tried it again last night. Really poor - pulled lamb with couscous was reheated chunks of rubbery lamb on a mat of congealed couscous. Spiced dishes were harsh with too much smoked paprika. Steak half burned half raw. Garlic prawns ok (frozen cooked prawns reheated with garlic and oil couldn't... More

Found this place by chance and was very impressed. We loved the laid back attitude - no menu and instead given a selection of excellent, good quality food! Great atmosphere! Makes such a change from normal restaurants! We will definitely be back!!
