    Although seated late due to a very large group dining, we where well looked after fron entering the door to leaving, Inital drinks and early ordering in the lobby, followed by impecable friendly service, efficient friendly service and food that was both stunning to look at and exquisite to eat, combined to make our anniversary night out thoroughly enjoyable.

    Nothing special I'm afraid. Service not that great. Staff fairly friendly and polite but left for ages before we were asked if we wanted another drink etc; had better service elsewhere. Food nice but nothing amazing; risotto like porridge!! Desert was very nice. Not offered any bread with the meal?!! Expensive for the quality of food. Far better gastro pubs/restaurants nearby for similar price. We eat out a lot!! To add on a service charge is pretty poor be is discretionary or not. Won't be going back! No Fever Tree tonic for gin either!! If a gin lover then very disappointing. Location nice but parking not through the fault of the venue is poor and restrictive. Fairly trendy but quite dark inside, can't appreciate the harbour view. Sorry Salthouse....had higher expectations.

    Food was good but the service was very, very slow. Apparently the problem was one party of 30, whereas it was understandable it didn't make it any better for us, by the time we got our main meal we didn't really fancy it. The restaurant staff was aware and offered complimentary desserts, but still a little under £100 for a meal for two, we were underwhelmed.

    Polite service and nice setting, but once I was there I remembered why I rarely book at this restaurant - every time I go there is a delay in the kitchen which means I end up eating my meal in a rush. The waiter was apologetic... it just keeps happening

    Good size portions, food lovely and fresh.

    Service very good. we ended up with our steaks being the wrong way round medium and well done but generally very good. Food was lovely. The automatically added service charge is at too higher percentage and the mere fact that it was requested has put me off returning

    Celebrated a work event here and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
    Would have liked just a little more choice on the fixed menu, but otherwise very good.

    Delightfully quirky dining space within hotel. Restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful and overall service was excellent. Very good portion of calamari as a pre dinner nibble and chose beer battered haddock for main. This was the best fried fish I have eaten - so fresh, flaky and cooked beautifully. Lots of atmosphere in the restaurant without being noisy. Good selection of drinks and cocktails - overall an excellent experience.
