Four of us ate at the Salt House last night (4 March). The first impression is of a warm, friendly local gastropub. However, initially, there was a queue of diners waiting to be seated and no-one remotely interested in helping – after a couple of minutes watching people “tutt, tutt” I went into the kitchen and appealed for help ! After that, things largely improved apart from the fact that almost all the wines at the “value” end of the list were “off” ! The suggested alternative to a £16.95 bottle of white cost £31.00 – so I thought that the waiter was either “having a laugh” or bonkers. Eventually, we settled for a very nice, cheap Viura (less than £15) and a bottle of a Cab Sauv from South Africa. The food was surprisingly good – hurrah ! The duck rillettes were as billed, the goats cheese salad was (I was told) very good. The Burger was very enjoyable and cooked medium as requested, The haddock and chips looked generous and was well received. One person had the steak and, having said that she would not be able to finish it, our friend consumed absolutely everything on the plate – which must be good. My wife had the salmon fishcakes and thought that they were not as bland as they sometimes can be (so why choose them ?). Altogether, a welcome surprise. We've booked to go back with our sons and their girlfirends !
