We had a Saturday evening meal at the salmon inn,I absolutely cannot fault the food it was better than average,I had a steak and it was presented beautifully,unfortunately I could not fit in a pudding! The problem I had was the very slow service,we had a lot of waiting about to do and at one time we had no drinks left on our table and one of our party had To To go to the bar himself for a round of drinks.the young male waiter that was on was not very professional in fact he was a bit blunt.I would go back for food but the service needs to improve

Hello Sadie

Thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed your meal. Apologies for the lapse in service last Saturday - we were short-staffed but that is no excuse for poor service - we normally score very high in that area. Hope you will come back again.

Visited here for a family meal. Unfortunately it appeared that a member of staff was posted missing so the lad and lass were working extremely hard to cope with the busy bar and restaurant.

The choice of food was plentiful, the portions were impressive and the quality was excellent.

It's a bit cramped when busy but it adds to the ambience of the place. I will excuse the staff for not being friendlier, they had enough on their plates (pardon the pun)

I'm sure I will be back.

Hello,

I'm guessing you were in on Saturday evening when it was incredibly busy with one down as you say! Thanks for being understanding and glad you will make a return visit when the staff can be slightly more relaxed!

Friendly welcome by all staff with good food at great value with excellent service, shame about the whipped cream on the desert! Otherwise no complaints, would definitely recommend.

Hi Hannah - thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed your visit to The Salmon and sorry you didn't like the whipped cream. It was fresh cream - but not something everyone likes - more than happy to serve without :-)
