“Yet Again”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

You can generally forgive slow bad service if a place is packed. It's Thursday afternoon and at a 10th of its capacity with more staff than customers yet the service at Salts Dinner really is shocking.
Yes the place is pleasant but please get over yourself's and sort your dreadful service out. It really does spoil what could be a very enjoyable place to come. Andrew Smith

“Good value for money”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

The food - Niçoise salad, burger, lemon drizzle & coffee & walnut cake were all very good, excellent value for money & well presented. The staff were polite but lacked interaction with the customers. Not too keen on the primary coloured furniture, but that's personal taste & the room has very bad acoustics but that can not be helped given it is set inside an old industrial building. The latte was nice but there is a lack of barista training. The food is good & this shows in just how busy it is & I will be returning.

“Are you sitting comfortably?”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

Salt's Diner - set alongside the excellent book shop, ground floor arts shop, Hockney Gallery and other fascinating shops specialising in design, this is a good place to spend time with friends - if only the chairs were more comfortable. For a restaurant set amidst excellent and innovative design, surely they could offer a more comfortable sit. I left with aggravated back ache!

The food is a good standard, if a little on the expensive side. Service could be a little more attentive and careful - I was brought the wrong tea, but this was corrected without fuss.

Reasonable selection of foods and drinks. Many people were present and the noise level was considerable.

“Stairway to heaven!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

I visited with friends and family on a Saturday lunch time.After a steep climb with a six year old we shopped a little in the bookshop then through to the diner. We hadn't booked but got in early, 12 o'clock so we were ok. It got very very busy soon after. I had a mushroom burger which was juicy and delicious. The others had sausage and mash( they do small portions for children) large pizzas and a large burger. We still had room for pudding and 3 of us ordered sticky toffee. Now I have made it my life's work to sample ST P on every menu I see it and grade it 1 to 10. When this one came it was the size of a small brick swimming in a sea of toffee soup. It was amazing ,gorgeous and I gave it a 10 easily!!!! My granddaughter had choc cake which she devoured with gusto and the other friend ice cream.We had coffee and with the drinks before lunch it came to about £90 for 5 of us. The staff were friendly and although it was so busy we were not made to feel rushed at all.
