Mr Salvat is an eccentric gentlemen dressed in C18-style clothing and writes orders with a long quill. He's getting on in age, but has a spring in his step and constantly humming. The indoor table/seating areas are intimate, and the secluded garden is an oasis of tranquillity, despite being on a main road. His own blended tea was very good, but would have preferred it in a china cup rather than big thick mug. My friend's lasagne was very tasty with very lean mince, although rather small, and would have been better with a little salad. Sadly, my potato & leek soup was very powdery and tasteless. However, the atmosphere and his joy was infectious, so more than made up for any shortcomings.

The food and drinks are fine (from a small menu) and reasonably priced, but the real point of Mr.Salvat's is its eccentricity, from the high backed settles to Mr. Salvat and help in frilly shirts.

This is so different you just have to give a try!

We had a lovely soup here served in a querky environment which has to be seen to be believed. I just wished we lived nearby so that we could go there more often.

Occasionally its good to try places that are so very very different from the modern world and Mr Salvat's coffee room is certainly that!. We loved it.
Belief can be suspended for a while, just enjoy the quirkiness of this establishment.The open log fire that looks as if it has never gone cold since the 18th century, the quill pen (biro) that the impish man uses to take your order, the cosy cubicle style layout built it would seem using early Ikea plans and material and the bathroom! Don't take any notice of the gaping hole in the ceiling at the top of the stairs or you could think that the whole place is about to fall down about your ears. Yet the food was excellent and reasonably priced. We hadn't seen the coffee served with the hot water dribbling from its cup-top container since the 1970's. The tea was made with real leaves - now there's a novelty .Do go and experience this throw back to years ago but not on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday as Mr Salvat will be at the market
