Pub SignMan left this review about Salt

Located practically next door to Terra Nova, this is another Brains venture, but not so much in the pub mould. Another vast modern building accommodates this relaxed bar which turns into a loud nightclub in the evenings. Unfortunately I visited late on a Friday night, so I’m not sure I saw the place in the best light and looking now at pictures on the venue’s website, I barely recognise it from the dark, crowded bar I remember. Split across two levels with bars and dancefloor areas on each, the most remarkable thing was the almost clinical approach to decor, with virtually no decoration of note on the plain white walls. The curved staircase connecting the two levels was perhaps the most eye catching feature, which just about says it all.
No cask ale is sold here, much to my disappointment, so I had to make do with keg Brains Black, which was thankfully quite drinkable. Brains Smooth was also available alongside Tiger and a few other mainstream products.
I was a bit let down by this place which looked quite pleasant when we passed it earlier in the day. It may well be a lot more appealing during the day and I don’t doubt that I saw it at a low point, but based on my visit, it scores pretty poorly.
