Afternoon Tea, featuring the best of sweet and savoury treats served with Jing Tea and Taittinger Champagne is served from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

Critics Review
Sophisticated Seaside Choice!
9/10
As concepts go, a seafood restaurant located 300 metres from the crest of a wave is a pretty good one. And while Brighton might lack the glitz (and weather) of Miami Beach it more than makes up for it with individual style and quirky food scene. Leading from the front in terms of both attributes is The Salt Room. Opening in early 2015 it has already been named in the prestigious National Restaurant Awards Top 100 (2015) and came 3rd place in Brighton’s Best Restaurant Awards in February 2016.

Took amazing care of us - special evening as we had just got engaged, I had reached out before hand to arrange champagne on arrival and everything was taken care of. Staff were super attentive and food was incredible. Oysters to start, SeaBass special for mains and a pudding to share. Throw in some advice on the wine and honestly it couldn't have been a better evening. Would go back again and again. Thank you!

We had a another lovely meal here. Our third visit - and each time the staff have been fabulous and the food is great. To make it perfect we would add one more non-fish dish to the menu please (a naked burger perhaps?). Also - window tables (we were on table 28) - it would be nice to have the chairs of the tables for 2 facing out to the wonderful view. Having said those 2 minor things (well - you did ask!) we will be back and we will be recommending you onto friends and family. Thank you - again!

My husband asked for real ale. The beer he chose was canned not bottled and being stored in chilling cabinet which spoiled his enjoyment of the Punk IPA. We were celebrating our son's birthday and my husband's birthday. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the food and spoiled us by presenting thd birthday 'boys' with a celebratory plate and truffles. We had an excellent meal and service. Thank you very much.

Fantastic food but had a table at the back of the restaurant and found the acoustics very bad. It was Saturday night and full. We had a job to conduct a conversation without shouting.

Almost great but let down by little things like having to send back my main course which was cold cod fritters also tepid), an underwhelming cheeseboard,and wine arriving after food. Overall the food was delicious, the wine advice very good and service pleasant.

My experience of the Salt Room has always been exceptional so I was really looking forward to one of the hotly tipped afternoon teas. With a choice of teas / gin / champagne, it was a real treat - melt in the mouth homemade scones with a selection of traditional and not-so-traditional savoury and sweet accompaniments. Surprisingly we had to return the cream as it had curdled but this was quickly rectified. Overall it was very enjoyable.

We absolutely loved our experience at the salt room. It was a very special lunch for my birthday and the food lived up to the standard for the occasion. Service was very attentive and we really appreciated having a table out the way with a sea view as we had a new born in tow. We couldn’t afford to eat here regularly but did not begrudge the pricing for the experience. Only negative was that I would have appreciated a covered bin in the disabled toilet (nappy change), I felt a bit bad leaving nappies and pads in the open basket.

It was all brilliant except for the coffee which was clearly not fresh and virtually undrinkable. Apart from that everything else was perfect.

This restaurant is absolutely excellent. The waitress that we had was extremely attentive, receptive and extremely pleasant. We went as a group of 11 people and everything was spot on. There were no delays in the food getting out and everything was scrumptious, would just have liked a bit more on the plate.

Absolutely lovely but......pre lunch cocktail tiny and expensive, together with a can of lager at £5.50! In my view WAY over the top. Food fabulous. But again, quite small portions. And £3.50 (I think) for a very small dish of chips?! Why not include and prevent criticism. We'll go again though. Thanks

Had been keen to visit, followed the menus for a while. So when the £20 deal came up, we booked, very excited. On the night, the main course was, finally, everything we'd hoped for, succulent cod, delicious. But we would have liked to have a choice of starter or desert, we would both have chosen a starter. A nice experience but not as good as we had hoped.
