The first time we attempted to have dinner at the Summer Isles bar, on a Tuesday evening, we turned up without a reservation, which was a big mistake. According to the waiter, everything was busy (although it looked like there were 3 empty tables) and...More

We had lunch here on a recent trip. The bar was very busy and the food was good, though we only had a bit of lunch: soup for my husband and a sandwich for me. The best bit was the views of the Summer Isles.

We stayed not far from the bar. Such a good place to be. Good service and welcoming staff. Had an excellent meal which we throughly enjoyed. Spent most of our stay having a drink in the bar in the evening. Definitely visit again.

This is a solid - seafood oriented restaurant. They have a good selection of wines and beer. The food was nicely prepared. The service was good. A good option in an area with few restaurants.

We did not book ( a mistake) but we were very generously offered a table for a quick meal before the reservation arrived. Very friendly service indeed. The restaurant is small, only seating 18 or so, but has a cosy atmosphere. Our cheesy fish pie...More

A quiet couple of drinks. Full lunch menu including a seafood platter available. Get a feeling many people now go to Salt for dinner during their open season or to the Piping School for lunch. Please tell and friendly welcome at the bar. The charge...More
