I have visited this reserve several times with my grandchildren.

After a good walk around the nature reserve the with 2 young children we had all built up an appetite.

My wife and I had a tasty soup with fresh crusty bread and a... More

Absolutely terrible Sunday lunch, completely tasteless. It was very cheap, but maybe increase the cost and quality. Have had tea and cake many times and enjoyed, but avoid Sunday lunch.

A present to us and very good this was too. There is a canteen feeling so atmosphere could be better though large picture windows looking out onto the wetlands was impressive. Sadly the strong December afternoon sun (yes we do get this here from time to time) resulted in serious glare which was a shame. A pleasant afternoon.

We've eaten at Saltholme regularly since the reserve opened and this is our second review. In our first review in 2012 we commented favourably about good food at a fair price. Snacks are now regrettably quite expensive e.g £2.75 for a sausage bun and the latte coffees rather weak that we now have think twice about eating here and often... More

We came into the restaurant freezing cold to find a warm welcome & a delicious gluten free hot chocolate & scone suitable for me as a Coeliac; gorgeous. Thank you to the helpful, friendly staff.
