About The Salt Room

The Salt Room opened on Brighton’s sea front in February 2015, headed by the team behind Brighton’s award-winning The Coal Shed Restaurant.

The Salt Room is a modern British seafood and grill restaurant. It's focus centres on celebrating the fruits of the sea, delivering the finest seafood and grilled meat cooked over charcoal to the table. Our emphasis being on sustainability, championing local produce and continuing the ethos of sharing plates like it’s sister restaurant, The Coal Shed.

Located opposite the West Pier, this seaside dining retreat has uninterrupted sea views that can be enjoyed from the inside via its glass fronted windows and for when the temperatures rise, outside on its shaded terrace.

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.

At the bar you’re able to choose from one of the innovative cocktails or something from the extensive wine list whilst you wait for a table to sample some of the delights…

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.

Hello We had an absolutely delicious meal on Tuesday evening in the private dining room - the food was incredible and the setting and service were wonderful. A huge thank you to Agatha who was a wonderful waitress and really made us feel looked after, she is a gem!

Definitely a good experience. Outstanding (French) waiter. Crab starter was disappointingly more mayonnaise than crab (I can only assume there was some crab content...), but still managed to be pleasant (though I would not choose it again). Will certainly give it a try again, when next in Brighton.

Our booking was for private dining for 10 people. In fact the table was in the main restaurant but in the far corner and can be separated by a curtain although the curtain was not closed during our visit. However the food and service was exceptional and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening

Wow what a great evening. The service was great with such lovely friendly staff. We enjoyed a whisky tasting pre-dinner conducted by Matt who was incredibly knowledgeable and made the experience both interesting and amusing. Thanks to everyone who made our evening so great.

Our waitress, Agatha, was lovely! She was so professional, but also happy and funny and relaxed. We felt very well looked after. It was a special occasion and the birthday pebbles and Happy Birthday writing was such a nice touch. The food was incredible. We had a great night. Thank you!

Very friendly service. We all enjoyed the food and thanks for creating a dairy free menu for my mum. The bill was wrong by quite a lot to begin with but was quickly sorted once I queried it.

Went for dinner on Friday which we loved and ended up sampling lots of cocktails in the bar after. The cocktail lady was awesome and really knew her stuff. Our waiter was really nice and friendly. We liked it so much we went back on Saturday for more cocktails and dessert. With some friends. Loved it so will definitely return on our next visit to Brighton.

Situé face à la mer, à 5 minutes à pieds du centre de Brighton, cet endroit est une perle. Une expérience de « grand restaurant », pour un établissement spacieux et agréable (avec une grande terrasse pour les beaux jours). L’accueil et le service sont impeccables. Les serveurs sont agréables, joviaux et aux petits soins. Comme nous sommes francophones, notre serveur, qui nous a suivi jusqu’au bout du repas, nous a présenté une employée française, qui nous a également suivi tout le long du repas; bar woman, elle nous a pourtant détaillé le menu à la perfection, et a parfaitement aiguillé nos choix, pour, entre autres, un poisson en croûte de sel, divin. Le menu est concis, offrant une cuisine classique de terroir revisité pour un résultat contemporain très réussi, avec un accent sur les produits de la mer. Les portions sont conséquentes et on en a pour son argent. Bien que les prix soient élevés, le rapport qualité/prix est au final raisonnable. Je recommande vivement cet établissement, qui fait partie des meilleures tables de la ville. Par contre, il est primordial de réserver, car bien que grand, le restaurant est vite complet. Réservation par téléphone ou via la plateforme de réservation sur leur site internet.

I had lunch with two friends from London on a chilly, blustery day. The Salt Room welcomed us into a warm, friendly and spacious environment, providing a thoughtful lunch menu with fish dishes as well as a la carte. As one of us has an allergy for anything in the onion family we were delighted to see that this had been noted on booking and care was taken to ensure onion-free dishes were available. I have already recommended to friends!

Both my friend and I thought the food was over seasoned with salt...a shame because the ingredients were high quality and beautifully presented - starters and mains unfortunately. Service was impressive though..very quick! Wouldn’t put us off coming back however we both said that we would request less salt as it over powered some of the delicate flavours
