Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely food and drinks served by great staff who were friendly and welcoming. All the brunch items and tapas were all very much enjoyed. Good range of drinks and non alcoholic options too. Small plates and larger platters all very good.

What a find! What a warm welcome to a buzzing wee place. Cocktails to start and the SaltHouse Margarita was one of the best we've ever had (and we've had a few 😀). Placed our orders and the plates came tapas like and every single...one was exceptional. Couldn't recommend more highly. Do go but make sure you book. It's buzzing!More

Great lunch served quickly by some friendly efficient staff. Lovely lemon and thyme chicken, gorgeous gravy. Home made vanilla ice cream with sherry soaked raisins. Delighted.

Service ok, food not as good as hoped for. Small portions for price. Main gripe, allowing dogs to be at table! They belong on the floor! Not laps, not seats, floor! Enough to put me off a return.

A beautiful spot and fantastic food! We booked for our anniversary and we received a lovely welcome. All the dishes were amazing, really tasty and full of flavour. We will definitely visit again when we are in the area.

Visited today in an unplanned visit as we were desperate to have a good traditional Sunday lunch . Whilst at £15 the cost is on the top end scale, the food did not disappoint. Gorgeous cooked beef , accompanied with the perfect crispy roast potatoes...and a good sized homemade Yorkshire pudding. The only disappointment was the service... While not terrible in any way it was sadly non existent! After the initial first drink and food ordered and arrived we saw nothing more of anyone and had to make a real effort to find someone for the bill. In a time where service is paramount in not only ensuring the customers are happy and become recurring guests . The need to obviously try and gain extra sales with more drinks and desserts wasn't obviously required. The restaurant wasn't busy and staff found time to chat to themselves in the detriment of its customers. Would i return... maybe, the food is that good but the service needs reviewing to really wow customers to be repeat customersMore

We were pleasantly surprised with the Sunday 'roast' lunch. It could have been a bit hotter when it arrived, but that was the only negative. There is also a separate dog-friendly section in the restaurant that works well. The starters and desserts on Sunday seem...to be from the tapas menu offered on other days and were not the best 'fit' with a roast lunch in our opinion. Not a sticky toffee pudding in sight.More

Fabulous staff...always well looked after. Had the pork Sunday lunch which was nice ..but didnt blow me away.... like the reviews suggest. I do love this place...great tapas on previous visits...but was a bit dissapointed on my Sunday visit ...a bit sad to see i...was billed for an extra jug of gravy....when the lunch is just under £16... paying extra is step too far... never ever been charged for extra gravy!More

Visited the Salthouse last night to watch the choir perform. The atmosphere was so lovely and the choir were amazing. I absolutely loved my tapas dishes that I had and did my friends. The staff were very attentive and the service was fast which I...was very impressed by with how busy the place was! Credit to all the staff both kitchen and serving staff. Will definitely be returning. Thanks xxMore
