We had a lovely visit for breakfast. The restaurant is very stylish and we were made to feel welcome. The breakfast itself was top quality and well served to the table. The accompanying toast was served with chef's home made marmalade. Best breakfast in Topsham!

This is a restaurant with rooms, so the emphasis is on the food, but the rooms are more than adequate. The star of the show, however, is the cuisine. Modern inventive food which is beautifully cooked and presented. The chef/owner is aiming for a Michelin star and we hope he succeeds.

We came for Christmas Eve and we're simply blown away, we settled on the four course menu and were not disappointed at all. From the drinks and nibbles in the lounge area to the pudding course and everything in between - it was all delicious, complemented by lovely surroundings and friendly, attentive service. I can't recommend The Salutation highly enough...
