Chew Valley

With a restaurant and takeaway on the bank of the stunning Chew Valley Lake, the original Salt & Malt has something for all the family. Relaxed and informal, you’ll find award winning food, friendly service and a knockout view of the rolling Somerset hills.

Our staple is great fish & chips. It’s what us Brits are famous for! You can get a great meal any time of day, be it breakfast favourites from poached eggs and the full English, through to lunch, serving quiche, soup and our signature fish and chips. We also offer afternoon tea, with a range of cakes, tray-bakes, scones, and hot drinks!

For those in a hurry for a good south Bristol “cod lot”, the takeaway is your friend. Fish & chips as you know it, with a few added touches. Signature crushed peas, Cornish artisan malt vinegar and chips fried in 100% British rapeseed oil so no saturated fats – better for your ticker and your taste buds too. Feed the hungry ducks whilst you’re waiting.
