Why have I not been before? My wife and I visited on a very cold Saturday evening. There was only one other couple but the background music helped to provide atmosphere. We were warmly greeted and seated. The menu ( which changes according to what chef gets in and prepares. There are no menus as such, you are told what... More

We were in and out within an hour due to this which was a real shame all food was brought out at the same time some... More

For some reason I've always overlooked the Salt Marsh. Finally went, and glad I did. Good service, big tasty dishes and good value. Not a huge choice, which I think is a good thing as everything is freshly cooked. Good music too.

Booked this restaurant for 23 family members the night before my wedding. Weren't quite sure what to expect but we were completely blown away by the service, the food and the ambience. The host was so welcoming, charming, courteous and generous, we felt immediately at home. She checked our guests preferences, allergies and intolerences etc and was extremely amenable to... More

Great eating for family, friends and special occasions. We often go here with friends and our children and for £20 a head you will get a terrific selection of tapas style dishes, including sizzling prawns, chicken wings, chorizo, patatas bravas and whatever other seasonal dishes the chef has created. The atmosphere is great and there is a lovely selection of... More

Local knowledge is always a good thing. Down visiting friends for the weekend so they had pre booked a table for a party of 9. On arrival they sorted the drinks (bottles of red and white ) both of which delicious. As for main course we/they had arranged just to bring a load of grub out . No one ordered... More

I must say the place is a little old but has a lovely charm. I do love the concept. A great interactive meal. However being fussy I was left feeling very hungry after as most I wasn't taken by. Maybe just me. But felt the food lacked my type of variety.

Celebrated my husbands 70th birthday. It is at the back of a pub but we had the whole conservatory area to ourselves We were told the meal would be a 'feeders' menu. I did not understand the extent of the amount of food we had on offer. The staff brought out dish after dish of the most exquisite food including... More

Great evening good food. We had the restaurant all to ourselves for a 50th party. Dishes of large prawns with salad then chicken and steak with bowls of chips. Plenty of food for us all. The waitress serve the food and drinks all by herself she was amazing thank you for a great night
