I go to this place a lot with my young family. It has a good range of food to suit all ages. Its more of a cafe than a restaurant but they sell warm food and salads and sandwiches. The baked good are good great.

Rocksalt is a fantastic cafe selling delightful food from breakfasts to toasted paninis/baked potatoes and loads of other treats. The coffee is delicious and there are an array of tray bakes to tempt everyone! Service is happy and quick and has just been done up so its an even more lovely space to sit in (or out)

Popped in today - perfect place for babies and quite a few families around. Place feels really relaxed and friendly with plenty of space to get your own cosy corner. Particularly liked how light the place was given the high ceilings and big windows. Wife and I both thought that £2.95 for a sit in tray bake - which wasn't... More

I visited here recently for lunch with a colleague and there was a great selection of sandwiches available with the 'soup & sandwich' lunch deal. For £4.50 I thought it was very good value. Service was great and the food was really tasty.

Popped in today to have coffee and cake. Unfortunately we were left standing unattended for quite sometime. Staff members just walked past. Not even any acknowledgment.So we left. Very bad service. Went to an excellent coffee place next door. You should really up your game when there is a range of places nearby!

Popped in for Sunday breakfast to try it out. Sat down and waited unsure if it's table service. Had to approach staff to ask to order. Two lukewarm coffees and scrambled egg on toast missing bacon with unordered beans instead. Toast was lovely though, but everything lukewarm including beans. Lot of competition around needs to up game and getting coffee... More

Ordered online through justeat website, was about to leave to collect when an email came through saying the cafe had declined our order. Called to ask why and was told they were "too busy". No alternative time had been offered and no phone call to say it may be longer than expected (they get the phone number of customer in... More

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!
