    The afternoon tea itself was lovely and the fact we were able to try a number of teas on the menu. Only issue was the service was really slow, my tea was forgotten and we had to keep asking for the bill and then to actually pay (took 20 minutes just to get the bill and to pay)

    I booked afternoon tea as savoury plus cake selection because I thought would be the best in town however was disappointed, the sausage rolls not as good as my own scones both cheese and with cream / jam crumbled and not that good . We were informed unlimited tea, coffee or hot chocolate no member of staff came back to see if all ok or if we would like another drink, shame to say I would not recommend this to anyone .

    I took my mum to the SaltHouse for afternoon tea for her birthday. We both loved it and will definitely be returning.
    There was a lovely atmosphere, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food was amazing!! (especially the sausage rolls)

    Great food but very pricey.

    The afternoon tea was lovely. The staff were not very attentive, had to go to bar to ask for extra tea/ coffee etc, they were quite happy to chat amongst themselves. Seemed to avoid all eye contact when trying to get their attention. Once again had to go up and ask for bill as were just sitting with our coats on. I wouldn't let that put me of but not quite the experience we expected.
