    Afternoon tea was exceptional!

  • ((((( 9 January 2017 by Tim Rodwell from Ipswich

    To start.. a friendly, cheerful welcome and a real feeling of 'this will be a good experience' which came from the desk staff who took us through. Really prompt attentive service from our waitress who helped with the menu when asked and generally made us feel a bit special. Food service was prompt no waits, faultless really. The food truly met expectations. It looked good, was well cooked and beautifully plated. Ribolleh? was all you want in a winter soup and some. My ex wife and I have brought our youngest son to eat with you for his birthday for the past 6 years. We wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Well done everyone involved.

    Plentiful afternoon tea ,with attentive helpful staff

    Brilliant! Superbly delicious meal, and the service was second to none. We were celebrating my husband's 50th Birthday (although we hadn't told you this), but your waiter must have picked up something from the conversation - when it came to the dessert, my husband's arrived with "Happy Birthday" drizzled beautifully across the plate with the sauce. It really made his day - Thank You!
    It was all good, but the chicken supreme was particularly delicious.

    I bought my wife to the Salthouse for her birthday on a gloomy January day and we had such a lovely evening. Staff were lovely and attentive but not over-bearing. The food was a complete delight and the ambience was so calm and relaxed.

    My husband and I took our four children for afternoon tea on New Years Day. We had a really lovely time, and can definitely recommend The Salthouse.

    Went to the restaurant for a family birthday celebration. Had an excellent time. Food was great, service excellent, atmosphere perfect, overall extremely enjoyable experience - will definitely go again for other special occasions ( a little too expensive for 'everyday' eating out). We were late getting there due to being let down by a taxi but a quick call to them to advise was met with complete understanding and no fuss.

    We enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea, to celebrate my daughters 21st birthdays, the service was attentive and the atmosphere was really good for a mid week afternoon.
