Went to visit the Salty Squid this morning with some friends for a light breakfast. Enjoyed every bite of my plain steak pie. The flavours were so delicious and the pastry was amazing, definitely a must visit. I can't wait to come back and try something from the lunch menu :D P.s excellent customer service from front of house staff.

By this time, we were only customers left, all tables, cleaned and water bottles refilled. Maybe takeaway customers are not as valued as eat in customers. Fish (5 small pieces) was ordinary, one piece... More
