Square Meal Review of Salts Diner ?

Philanthropist and cloth magnate Titus Salt created a workers’ village by the River Aire in the mid-1800s, when the Yorkshire textile industry was at its peak. Now a World Heritage Site, Saltaire’s majestic buildings and cobbled streets have been winningly spruced up. This spectacular, stone-flagged diner in the stunningly renovated mill, was bought in 1987 by Salt’s 20th-century counterpart Jonathan Silver, who has brought his own vision to the model village. The work of Silver’s old mate David Hockney features prominently on all five floors, & his sketches of daschund Stanley are cutely printed on the napkins in the diner, as well as appearing on the top of a menu that shows a dedication to local ingredients & simple dishes: Salt’s sausage & mash is a perennial favourite, & there’s a proper pizza oven, with the pepperoni good value at £7.50. On the top floor, the ‘Cafe into the Opera’ serves rather more sophisticated, mainly fishy delights such as Arbroath smokies & grilled king scallops in view of Hockney’s scale set designs for The Magic Flute & The Rake’s Progress.

    Rate My Bistro :: Salts Diner – Saltaire

    Often when things are on your doorstep, then for some reason, you don’t visit them. This was the case with Salts Diner located in Salts Mill. It’s always great to have the quality time out with my dad! This time we thought that we may as well stay local and hence headed down to Salts Diner. A late Sunday afternoon lunch meant that Salts Diner was busy but not heaving. The specials on the menu sounded great and the fish dish was the one that my dad chose...
