Went in to try and confirm reservation made 2 days in advance. Uncontactable by phone or e-mail, don't reply to messages by phone or email. No one who could help when attended to confirm on morning of intended visit. Went somewhere else. Shame.

We needed to book a table for Saturday night, it was well worth it. We each had 2 main dishes and a side dish which was the perfect size. The menu was filled with great options of meat, fish and vegetables. We then chose one...More

An interesting menu with local ingredients. I ordered three different vegetarian dishes - summer greens, beetroot tarte tartin and almond crusted goat cheese ball with rhubarb jam. Service was very friendly and pleasant and was appropriate. The food was tasty and the bottle of wine...More

My partner and I had dinner at Salt over the Bank Holiday. The place is charming, with excellent and friendly service and a fantastic menu. Not having too many items on the menu means the kitchen can focus on quality and locally sourced ingredients. Combined...More
