We arranged to meet a group of friends at The Saltmarsh last Saturday evening and had a great experience. The menu is fairly simple but very good with a good choice of fish, meat and vegetarian. The ambience is a very rustic and relaxed and there is no pressure to eat quickly and leave. Overall we had an extremely enjoyable... More

What a gem. Nice staff, relaxed atmosphere in a nice old barn-like setting, excellent simple but delicious dishes made with good quality fresh ingredients, large portions,... No menu but enough options to please everyone. Already miss it.

Never eaten here before, it was by far the best meal I've had out in some time. No menu, but an excellent explanation of what's on offer by the staff. The food is served all at once, there were eight plates in front of my girlfriend and I, slices of rump steak, a whole fish, meatballs, king prawns, fresh salad,... More

A lovely place to go with friends who like to share their food, but remember to book in advance. There is not lots of choice but the quality is great.

I love the Saltmarsh, the laid back atmosphere & always friendly welcoming staff. You get to choose 3 of 4 starters to share plus a big salad & brochette then 3 of 4 mains also to share with some sort of potatoes & seasonal veg. Then you choose your own pudding. We had king prawns, mushroom toast, steak, chicken, lamb... More

We went to this restuarant, after going to another which was fully booked. Apparently so was this one, however we were informed by a very helpful and friendly lady that if we opted for a "Hit" they could accomodate us and that the food would arrive in good time. We were not dissapointed! A hit is a sort of tapas/mixture... More
