The salthouse has a great location and lovely booth seating. We found the service started off well and was personal and attentive, from starters onwards the service was non existent, the food is fine but too small. Nothing special.

A family birthday get together - 7 adults and a 1 year old in high chair. Waiting staff were attentive to begin with but it became increasing difficult to get their attention as the venue filled up. Food was mostly enjoyed by the diners in our group - however, me and my wife both ordred a duck dish that was... More

Right up there with the best sunday roasts I've had. The smoked haddock was to due for as well. And all at a very reasonable price - considering the quality, the service and the five star surroundings as well. Got there at 16:30 so a little on the late side for decent meat but both the beef and chicken were... More

We took some friends out for supper on a wet cold November evening and having tried the other restaurants we thought we would give the Salthouse a try. The booking was efficient and on arrival we were welcomed by a young waitress and they seemed to expect us, this is a good place to start. We had a drink in... More

It was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was fairly quiet but I couldn't fault anything about this beautiful place. Spacious and elegant with large well spaced tables the food was amazing. New on the menu was a beetroot and goats cheese starter. So tasty. Bressingham duck off the bone and plenty of it with celeriac was a great main.... More

Having eaten here previously, we were looking forward to a return visit and introducing family visiting the town to the excellent food served at the Salthouse. The food did not disappoint, the whitebait 'nibble' being excellent, followed by some delicious sea bass. Unfortunately the service was poor in many respects; our table was booked for 8.15. and I had to... More

Not quite top notch the specials could be better. I had chargrilled Mackerel which was nice, Trout with brown shrimp well cooked and tasty but slightly too much butter for my liking. Followed by cheese and biscuits which was served with a very good date chutney. Wine list was good but a little pricey. Service good but should be just... More

The first thing you notice when walking into the hotel / restaurant is that the decor is interesting, intriguing and definitely a good talking point with your companions. Lots of interesting art and artefacts dotted around the place. The time we went to the restaurant on a Sunday evening it wasn't too busy so we were served quickly and the... More
