    The food is always very good at the salthouse, the downside at the restaurant is how slow the service is. Had a business lunch that we wanted to keep to maybe 1 hour 30 mins with 2 courses, should be pretty achievable, sat down at 1pm, left at 3.20pm because the food took so long to come out, but also the staff took ages to come and take our orders, and I had to chase up dessert as we needed to go. Otherwise the staff are extremely polite, but we also had 5 different waiter/waitresses throughout the meal, which might be why things took so long. it took roughly 20 minutes for 1 coffee to be produced as well, the restaurant had about 5-6 tables with dinning guests on them throughout our whole meal, so it wasn't even because the place was too busy which I would have understood more.

    Came to the Salthouse for afternoon tea with my best friend as a pre Christmas treat - we loved every minute of it! The ambience and quirky little features around the restaurant, the friendly and professional staff where nothing was too much bother and of course the food! It was delicious and lovely to be able to take our time over it!
    Thank you for a wonderful afternoon!

    Very good food and very good service. I've eaten here a few times recently and they've definitely upped their game. The food used to be 'up and down' and the service was generally awful. Not anymore. Please keep up the good work Team Salthouse! Only complaint is lack of parking. The hotel desperately needs to have other parking options available other than their tiny on site car park. Having 'bouncers' on the car park on busy days is ridiculous. I can understand hotel guests having priority but they've tried to turn me away before from an almost empty car park. Hotels in London manage to sort parking options for all guests so please sort this out Team Salthouse!

    I booked afternoon tea for my Mums 60th Birthday. We were impressed with the range of hot beverages not only limited to tea. The food was amazing, hot sausage rolls and cheese scones were absolutely delicious and an unexpected delight. The cakes were beautiful and tasty. The waitresses were friendly and polite and made us feel welcome with no rush to leave. We would definitely come back for another treat.

    A lovely setting and ambience, attentive staff and amazing food! We went for the chateaubriand; well worth the 45min wait - cooked to perfection and tasted out of this world!
