We visited Saltwells Inn in January 2014, primarily because were exploring the adjacent Saltwells nature park which is well worth a visit. The inn itself is based right next to the park and is an ideal place to finish off the walk.
On the plus side, its location and parking are both good. It is very family friendly and with two very young children this was a big relief for us. There were other families there too who clearly felt the same. Baby changing facilities and great outdoor play area. Staff very welcoming and amenable.
We were disappointed however with the overall quality (and selection) of the food. As a mainly vegetarian family we found only one veggie meal on the menu (and it wasn't very exciting either). I sometimes eat fish so I ordered salmon. My husband had the cheesy pasta bake. I could have done better myself living on a student grant! Poor quality ingredients and limp, sorry looking vegetables that had clearly been reheated several times. Mashed potato from a packet. Our son had chips and a cheese bap, which were better. My mum enjoyed her baked potato. So not all was bad... It seems that they do the quick n' easy stuff better. Overall, we would go again because of its location and welcoming atmosphere, but stick to chips and jacket potatoes!
