Had an amazing meal. Steak was perfectly cooked. Wine was excellent. The home made sorbets were amazing. We left there feeling very full and very well looked after. Will be recommending this place to friends and will be back next time. Thanks

I've been to salt house a bunch of times for a number of different types of occasions. From birthday dinners, to post races parties to baby showers. It's a great atmosphere, location is hard to beat and they make good cocktails. Do not go here...More

Excellent visit to the Salt house. Food and the wine was great. The wait staff was excellent and they did offer smaller plates as well as full meals. Loved the small plate duck entree. Walking distance from our hotel.

Had been here before 2 yrs ago & had a nice time, so very annoyed to order 2 simple lunch specials and then wait 40 minutes to be served. People arrived after us & received their a la carte meals before us. Not Happy!
