Legend has it, in the late 1800s Blood Alley was flooded every night with the blood rinsed from the surrounding butcher shops – it ran down to the square where public hangings took place. Ooh Spooky. Winding your way down this dimly lit street, you will be relieved to spot the black flag marked with a salt shaker.
This is Salt Tasting Room. Minimal and uncluttered, the cement floors and brick walls make you feel as if this place is a canvas and the media to colour it, is you, your people and the amazing wine you’re about to imbibe. The best place to get amongst it is at the long, communal table. The cellar downstairs is for large groups and tasting events.
The menu at Salt is never the same. Consult the giant chalk board menu to see the ten artisanal cheeses, ten small-batch cured meats and plethora of condiments on offer that day. Choose your own, or advise the server of your preferences and they will curate an array to perfectly suit your tastes.
Order a tasting flight of three different wines to complement your meal. Beware, the total volume of the flight comes to only 6oz. Take advantage of the dynamic selection of wines, beers and sherries and order another glass, or three.
