We were on a Travelzoo offer which we often use to try out different places, we had always wanted to come here so were very excited and also decided to stay in one of their rooms (which was great). We were first disappointed by the choice on the special menu for the deal (some places do this but they are... More

I went for lunch with a friend, arrived and ordered, or food arrived after 45 mins, staff were very polite but not very well trained. Ordered tap water and got bottled, ordered orange juice and lemonade together and they came in two separate glasses. I had Sunday roast at £20, portion small and expensive for what it was, my friend... More

From the phone call to book the table to the handing back of coats as we left, the staff were friendly, unpretentious and engaging. Lots of nice touches along the way, like etch-a-sketches and colouring for the children, a fantastic complimentary hors d'oeuvre, with a nice range of delicious morsels to delight the palette - each introduced with enthusiasm.

What a beautiful setting firstly, the lunch was perfect but what made it for us was the staff - the warmth of greeting, the care they took of our 16mnth granddaughter and the attention to our needs raised this restaurant to a different level altogether. I only had one slight concern regarding the tipping - we were pleased to tip... More

We came here for lunch. The menu is very small and makes choices a bit difficult. They offered a sunday roast of pork bellies which my wife chose and I had the ray. The roast was ok but certainly not worth the money. When chosing a pork belly these one would expect a soft and slow cooked piece whereas this... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the view. For all the hype, the food is alright but not amazing. The service is ok but a bit slow. Probably won't return.... except maybe for drinks and to enjoy the view

Well what can I say so much potential let down by the service. Just been for dinner with girl friends cocktails upstairs were good, but service in the restaurant was very slow; 45 mins to take the order, food when it came was of a good standard, overall it took 1.5 hours to be served our main courses! Go if... More

Restaurant was lovely, light and airy. Modern decor. Staff were all brilliant, just the right amount of attention. Food was great. Fish soup was superb. Mussels and coley gratin also. Jellied rabbit was a bit bland. Fritto Misto, gurnard and pork were all beautifully cooked and presented. Piece de resistance the sharing plum lardy cake with lemon curd ice cream

Went there this week on a £25 Travelzoo voucher. What a bargain. Brilliant window seat, so we watched the tide come in for the two hours we spent over an excellent lunch. Friendly staff, good wine and cider and near-faultless food. The whiting was cooked to perfection and my cod was, too. My wife went for chicken (they'd run out... More

I had an amazing meal with my wife to celebrate my birthday at Rocksalt and cannot convey just how excellent the food and service was. Thank you so much for providing a memorable evening for myself and my wife, we will definitely be returning. Compliments to the chef and staff, top class all the way through from start to end.
