The Salt Room. A Brighton Icon On The Foodie Scene of Sussex

The Salt Room is a modern British seafood and grill restaurant, its focus centres on celebrating the Fruits of the Sea, delivering the finest seafood and grilled meat cooked over charcoal to the table.  With emphasis being on sustainability, championing local produce and continuing the ethos of sharing plates like its sister restaurants, The Coal Shed and Burnt Orange.

Located opposite the West Pier on the ground floor outcrop of the Hilton Metropol, 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 vast outdoor terrace which boasts amazing views of the Skeleton of the West Pier and i360.

The luxurious interior of the restaurant consists of striking rustic-meets-industrial décor, in which no expense has been spared. Bare brick walls are sparsely adorned with a grandiose wine rack and the odd west-pier design blueprint, rustic iron downlights and stylish comfy teal leather backed chairs.

The ambitious, cleverly designed and easy to navigate menu depicts a whole host of tantalising seafood small plates with delicious offerings such as charred scallops in Café de Paris butter with pickle, lemon and edamame, and grilled octopus, in XO, with seaweed and pomegranate. Irresistible seafood mains like Barbecued Cornish Monkfish and Loch Duart Salmon, as well as singed meaty offerings from the Josper Grill such as dry-aged ribeye steaks. The menu also boasts vegetarian dishes which could tempt even the most ardent carnivore.

The Dessert menu deserves equal attention, the Salt Room’s signature showstopper “Taste of the Pier” dessert is not to be missed! A colourful sharing platter of seaside-themed treats is a masterful and thoroughly entertaining dessert showing off the chef’s technique and vision. Two sticks of cloud-like candy floss, icing sugar coated pebbles of black chocolate truffle, Mr whippy style ice-cream with hints of salted caramel in a wafer thin cornet, sinful iced doughnut’s filled to the brim with intensely fruity jam and chunks of honeycomb encased in white chocolate.

The Salt Room is THE restaurant that tops everyone’s list. The extremely talented kitchen team turn out truly outstanding dishes made from fresh well-sourced seasonal ingredients. It is possible to give The Salt Rooms menu a serious and costly going over, though it is accessible to all, with a lunch and early evening menu set menu where you can enjoy three courses for just £20.00. The size and ideal location also make it the perfect place for functions and group bookings with a private dining room available year round.
