An excellent lunch of Walnut & Yorkshire Blue Cheese Tart with warm new potatoes and salad, and the coffee was excellent also. Interesting foodie items for sale, but I managed to resist them. Glorious weather (early October) so managed to sit outside. A most pleasant interlude.

The wind was whistling off the North sea down the quaint little street when we popped into Real Meals for a Hot Chocolate. Sitting at a window table with the sun streaming in, it was hard to believe how chill it was in the street. A really friendly young man chatted to us and brought us cups of delicious hot... More

Called in today for lunch. Had a beautiful ham salad. Asked for tap water and we were brought a jug with mint and lemon, a nice touch and much appreciated. Fantastic staff, helpful and friendly. Will definitely go back ☺️☺️

Our annual trip to Saltburn meant plenty of chances to sample the food in this amazing place. Amazing soup and such a choice for my veggie wife. 2017 holiday booked today so will definitely be back.

We came here in May for lunch (spiced chicken soup and sharing platter - yum!) then again last week for a great breakfast. Nice staff, I get the impression they all really care about the top quality food served. I'd highly recommend.

Stopped in for lunch here - had a delicious lunch of stuffed mushrooms; my friend had the ploughmans' with great cheeses. Alas too full for pudding but there was a great array of cakes. Not to be denied, I bought a couple of lemon tarts to eat later. They were wonderful!

Were recommended to visit for an informal light lunch and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Although there is an opportunity to seat outside, that is limited so we took a table inside which was lovely and the service was excellent. There's a choice from their specials board and lots of items available for purchase to take home or eat... More

Real Meals is without a doubt one of the best foodie places in the region. The combination of wonderful customer service, lots of lovely goodies to browse over and buy and of course wonderful, freshly cooked food. The only challenge I have is that despite the great looking dishes on the regular menu, I never get to try them because... More

Saltburn by the Sea is a lovely survivor of Victorian seaside England. Lots of Victorian and Edwardian streets with interesting shops and restaurants, often proprietor-run. Didn't spot a single chain store or restaurant with the exception of a Sainsbury. Real Meals is what it says on the label. The seabass had by my neighbour looked delicious and he said it... More
