Review | Salisbury Seafood & Steak House

Normally when I travel, I tend to enjoy dining at local restaurants than eating at the hotel because I like to experience the town or city whilst I'm there. During our recent stay at the Milford Hall Hotel in Salisbury, we had the chance to dine at The Salisbury Seafood & Steak House - which I'll be honest and say that I was quite uneasy about beforehand.

If you're like me who is pretty simple and isn't really into 'fancy' food, you will understand why I felt a bit uneasy. Located within the hotel, the AA Rosette restaurant is pretty 'posh.' Not posh in the way how you have to rock up in a shirt and tie with a napkin tucked into your collar, but posh in the way how you probably wouldn't know what half of the dishes actually are on the menu. Kindly invited to try out The Salisbury Seafood & Steak House by the events team from the Milford Hall Hotel, we were given their 3-course menu to choose from.

The young and lovely staff were as helpful as you can get. They were always happy to help, whether that'd be explaining what the dishes actually were (haha!) or helping my boyfriend figure out what he could order from the menu - as he is gluten intolerant.

For starters, I ordered the Fillet of Cod, Herb Crust, Hazelnuts and Pepper Coulis. This dish was really tasty. I never would've thought that hazelnuts and cod would mix well but it genuinely did! Sat ordered the Smoked Salmon and Prawn Crayfish Bolero. Similar to the popular Prawn Cocktail in Rose Marie Sauce, he really enjoyed this restaurant's version. They added red apple into the mix, which initially tasted unusual but we started to enjoy it after a couple of bites in.

As for mains, Sat chose the Cajun Chicken Breast, Sweet Potato Fries and Rocket Salad. If I'm honest, the chicken was a little bit over-cooked. The cajun flavour was also pretty non-existent, which resulted in Sat asking for BBQ sauce to make his main more enjoyable to eat. He didn't really mind but because I'm pretty particular with things like that, I was a little disappointed for him.

On the other hand, I chose the Chargrilled Pork Steak, French Fries and Grilled Tomato. If you know me, I love anything that has the word steak in it. I just love meat too much! This was such an amazing dish though. I honestly really enjoyed it. The pork was seasoned really well and cooked perfectly too! Not in the slightest was it dry. Accompanied with crispy french fries, I gobbled this up pretty quickly.

OBVIOUSLY still having room for dessert, I decided to try out the Chocolate Fondant with Salted Caramel Brittle and Caramel Sauce. This dessert was so dreamy and I wish I could have it again! The chocolate fondant was quite rich but alongside the vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce, it created the perfect combo and balanced the richness out really well.

Sat went for the Lemon and Lime Posset with Cream Chantilly. This dessert was 'ok', I'd have to say that it was very sour! I can take sour food. I love sour food. However as a dessert, this was way too sour and half of it ended up being left behind.

We had a lovely time at Salisbury Seafood & Steak House. I thoroughly enjoyed my 3-course dinner and I know Sat did too - just not as much as I did. We both did leave very full though, so that's always a good thing! Not forgetting to mention, the staff were the most polite and friendly waiting staff I've ever met, they genuinely made our experience at the restaurant much more delightful due to their service. The 3-course set menu does seem to be a hit or miss though, so I would suggest you to see the restaurant's main menu for a larger range of dishes.

Have you ever dined there before? If not, what do you think of 'posh' restaurant's like Salisbury Seafood & Steak House?
