Nestled in the picturesque South West countryside on the shores of Chew Valley Lake, Salt & Malt offers visitors a quintessentially British dining experience, with a traditional tearoom, restaurant and fish and chip takeaway.

Serving up breakfast favourites from hearty porridge, poached eggs and the full English, through to lunch and dinner offerings of jam & scones, steamed mussels, fishcakes, scampi… then there’s the fish and chips.

Our award-winning fish and chips are cooked to a crispy battered perfection, the way it ought to be and our top secret recipe is gluten free, which means our fish and chips can be enjoyed by everyone.

There is also an ice-cream kiosk for the summer months featuring ice cream made right here in the Chew Valley.
