We found the service was good and the the 2 tyes of burgers eaten were very nice, but the ribs, although tasty, needed longer cooking so were a little tough. We enjoyed the chips but a little salad would have been nice to accompany our meals. The serve sizes were generous so quite good value for money.

Had the pleasure of having dinner here on a wet Tuesday evening, the restaurant was full and we didn't book ahead but the lovely staff found a table served us promptly with drinks took our order. The food was lovely and plentiful. Unfortunately one of our diners fell ill and an ambulance had to be called by the staff, they... More

This is pub-style food, but with a menu varied enough to suit the palates of teenagers through middle agers through older visitors. Great burgers and chips - the beef burger was the winner on the day. But equally well made Caesar salads. And a pretty decent range of wines. We thought the service was efficient and friendly. No complaints here.

The burgers are delicious. There is a good menu with a bit of diversity. I think the dessert menu needs to be added to but overall I am happy with my dining experiences at Salt. I have to say the fish is delish too. I have tried the peanut butter cheesecake and it is very rich and gorgeous - and... More

Came here for lunch and had burgers. The chips were nice and crispy on the outside and soft inside. The beef burger was delicious - the tomato relish and cheese were especially tasty. Only thing is the burgers can be a bit tall and messy, so something to think about if that bothers you.

The staff serving us worked very hard. The menu is a mixture of 'burgers' ( we had the chicken and the fish, and these were fillets of chicken and fish not actual patty style burgers) and other pub staples. The flatbread in the flatbread, olive and dips starter was lovely, the burgers were reasonably good - not spectacular- but nice... More
