I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at both the menu and the quality of food we received. We ordered the cheese board as a starter, with lobster rolls - I would swear the entire lobster... More

We had a wonderful dinner here last night. Very beautiful setting in the Wentworth Hotel. Salads, main and deserts were very good. Three of us had the Chicken Saltimbocca because they were out of the Skirt Stake, which was strange as it was 5:30 in the afternoon. But the Chicken was great. My wife loved the 1/2 portion of the...

Hello T D, We are delighted that you enjoyed the food and the setting. The domed ceiling does increase the noise in the center of the restaurant. It's part of the charm of a historic hotel built in 1874. Please visit us again when your travels bring you back to New Castle. Best Regards, Dean Pratt More

My husband and I have not been away together in over 10 years! We have alpacas, chickens, and dogs and one of us would always stay home to care for them while the other visited family or traveled. Enter a fabulous farm sitter, so we decide to come to New Castle for three days and stay at Wentworth by the... More

Outstanding service and food. One of the finest dinners I have had. Salmon dinner with fresh mussels prepared perfectly. Waiter Doug was totally focused on our comfort and explained every course of the meal. Will definitely recommend Salt to others and will return. 5 stars

Visited with kids/grandkids. They took great care of all of us. The Rustica pizza was incredible. The views at the hotel and on the ride around the islands were awesome. Take the ride on Rt 1B even if you don't stop for food
