Up on the roof at Vintage Salt

Today I’m on the roof of Selfridges, that stylish store in the middle of Oxford Street. Vintage Salt is a new addition to this summer’s alfresco offerings, the London outdoor lifestyle continues to grow and I’m loving it. And this is the perfect place to refuel mid-shopping, a peaceful haven high above the hubub of London’s busiest shopping street..

The decor is kind of seaside village with plenty of whitewashed wood and blue trims. The menu offers a good range of seasonal dishes and the service is warm, friendly and efficient. And the food is lovely.

My shrimp burger was plump and flavoursome with good chunks of shrimp, a crispy crumb and a lovely spicy tartare sauce on the side.

The tastiest of shrimp burgers and a spicy tartare sauce

The fish and chips was a substantial portion and came with more tartare sauce and mushy peas. One of the nicest pieces of fish I’ve had in a long time, it was sweet and moist inside with the most perfect of light and crispy batters. Now this is what fish and chips is supposed to taste like.

It’s hard to beat perfect fish and chips

Here’s a good view of the roof terrace, looking very welcoming.
