What have they done to this place? All the 'furniture' is old and tatty gymnastics equipment and science chairs from your school days! Why on earth would I (or could I) put a drink down on a pommel horse?!? My friends and I turned up...More

Overpriced in an obscene way. Obviously cheap ingredients to anyone who's ever left their own house. Pretending to be a bit like somewhere good from a bigger town. The drinks are average but you'll never find out because you can't get to the bar. Yes...More

Went in for drinks on Saturday to see what the new HQ was like. Positives: Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Food looked and smelt good. Negatives: Odd layout with middle table/bar. New furniture feels a bit cheap. Beer choice was pretty rubbish: Coors Light, Staropramen,...More

This is our favourite place to brunch in Lymm, due to the brunch menu. It's reasonably priced and service is good. However, the decor is extremely tired and dated. I believe it's closed for a refurb; thank goodness!

We'd missed out on lunch so stopped here for a quick snack. The place was almost empty but that's due to the time of day. Service was prompt and courteous and the place was clean and tidy. We ordered a daily special of tomato pepper...More

Considering its in the centre of Lymm you would expect a higher standard. Espiecally when the drinks are somewhat expensive. You could argue that these prices were set when opened however, the venue is tired, chipped paintwork ripped upholstery. This place screams to be refurbished...More

I have been to Cafe Salar a few times now for different things. It strikes me more as a trendy bar that does food to make it more profitable. Nothing wrong with Cafe Salar, but in the 4 times I have been, service has always...More

Nice to sit on the terrace at the front on a sunny day. There is a decent range of drinks available within the usual cafe/wine bar kind of range - there is food available too but we didn't eat so can't comment on that.
