    Lovely meal very slow sevice had to keep reminding staff about our drinks and food order, I hasten to add this was not their fault just simply too many diners for the amount of staff working that evening, wouldn’t visit again however.

    Good service and friendly staff, bit of a wait on food but it was very busy. Second time we’ve been and just as good the second time round. Food was freshly cooked, worth the wait.

    Very accommodating brilliant staff, couldn’t do enough for us. Will definitely be returning!

    Very disappointed with the limited menu! Expected something a little more considering the location of the venue and the overall look of the place, however, the food we received was good!

    Booked for a pre show dinner, we ate in the restaurant but chose from the bar menu. The food was lovely and the waitresses were all very friendly and helpful, the only criticism was the speed of service - thankfully we had booked the table for two hours before the show, we had main and pudding with no coffee and didn't have a great deal of time to then get into our seats at the arena

    Pleasant enough setting, waiter was well spoken and attentive without being intrusive. Thought the menu was a bit average but was incredibly quickly served and piping hot , coffee was really good too, desserts weren't particularly interesting but it's a sports bar so maybe not too surprising. Overall a pleasant experience and extremely convenient for playoff hockey weekend.

    Was a lovely meal, piping hot and great friendly service!

    Fab meal at Saltbox before going to a show!

We say…

PLEASE NOTE: Opening times do vary day to day. 

Based in the heart of Nottingham and adjacent to the Motorpoint Arena, Saltbox is perfect for those wanting to dine before or after a performance. Only a 5 minute walk from the trendy Lace Market area and 10 minutes from Old Market Square and the centre of town, Saltbox is well located for any diner visiting Nottingham. Recently taken over by the well known Great Northern Inns, the company responsible for other brilliant restaurants such as  Copper and  The Cross Keys the Saltbox is destined to become a dining landmark in its own right. 

Once inside you can see impressive yet classy interior on display with a mixture of hanging exposed light bulbs, recessed lighting, comfortable booth areas and a smart restaurant area. Split intro three main areas, the main bar area and lounge, the Box restaurant and the first floor private dining area complete with private bar. Above the main bar their even includes a unique glass walkway to a mezzanine dining area, perfect for parties or birthdays! 

When it comes to the food Saltbox offers a huge range of different dishes to suit even the fussiest of diners. To start we always recommend the Cajun Prawn Cocktail with Cos lettuce, sun-dried tomatoes and spicy mayonnaise. Or perhaps the Fighting Nachos with spicy beef chilli, jalapeno peppers, melted cheese, guacamole, sour cream and tomato salsa. Then for the main event we love the Cheeky Monkfish with creamed spinach, rosemary, potatoes, brown shrimps and caper butter. For the vegetarians among us the Baked Ricotta and Spinach Canneloni is excellent choice with goats cheese, white wine sauce, mixed salad and garlic bread.

Whether you are visiting the Arena for a performance or an Ice Hockey match or simply want a venue perfect for a celebration, Saltbox is always an excellent choice!
