Loved Salute for brunch on Sunday. Fabulous, buzzy venue. Wonderful tapas - everything was delicious. Interesting wine list too. A recommendation. Great staff too. Loved being there.

Sitting down to lunch here recently, I just couldn't remember why I hadn't been back in the longest while. After that lunch, I won't make that mistake again. The amount of flavour the kitchen can pack into the tastiest morsel is exceptional .. and of all the things we snacked on, I wasn't expecting a falafel to be my standout. Try it - so far removed from anything you've tried before! And a pleasing level of service in a really small town - see you soon Salute.

Arrived with huge expectations as heard the place was fabulous. The service was okay nothing stunning and unfortunately the double cooked pork belly was overcooked and just way too crunchy without the soft melt in your mouth centre we were expecting.
Did explain this and it was noted but was dissappointed. The menu felt limited and we would have liked to select from the entire menu.

I am sorry to hear you thought your pork belly was overcooked. It is very rare we receive a comment like this on that particular dish, as it is a favorite of many return visitors. Should you return, please let us know your concern from your previous visit so we can alert our kitchen.

I am confused about your "limited" menu comment, especially being followed with "liked to select from the entire menu". Our twice cooked pork belly is only available on our complete menu, which has at least 27 options to choose from not including many desserts and cheeses. Our wine and beverage menu is quite extensive as well.

We do offer limited specialty menus on Sunday brunch and Monday nights, and these menus are posted on our website as well as on our outdoor menu boards. But we do not offer the twice cooked pork belly on either of those specialty menus, so I cannot derive what your comment pertains to.

We hope we can give you a better experience should you choose to return.

En route to a family weekend at Martinborough before WOW. Where to have lunch!!!

Salute is a gem. The menu is well constructed - we could have ordered it all!! Standouts - order the porcini risotto (duck ‘qwackling!!) pork belly, arancini - to name a few. But leave room for desert. Lemon fritters and rocky road. Ecstatic stuff!

Service is friendly - and helpful. The chef?? HE CAN COOK!! Enjoy.

Friendly staff, good service and tasty food. We have a lovely bottle of rose, 5 tapas dishes and a sweet between the two of us. Absolutely stuffed at the end but I couldn't stop eating. Highlight dish was the smoked duck and truffle risotto and also the molten choc and grand marine flan. Awesome
