Salt Market Social is a warehouse pop up event, bringing together the best of the region’s street food stalls, craft beers and spirits along with great local music under one roof in the heart of North Shields Fish Quay

Due to the recent changes in Government guidelines we will only be able to take bookings from people in one household and a maximum of 6 people per table.

In addition we now have to shut at 10pm so we will need to cancel any bookings made after 8.30pm and refund deposits. If this affects you please rebook for an earlier slot if available or for our next Social in October.

If you wish to cancel your booking can you please do this through the booking system or if you wish to amend your booking please email us – info@saltmarketsocial.co.uk

All reservations require a £20 deposit which will be deducted from your final bill. We will refund a deposit for any booking cancelled at least 24 hours prior to arrival time. Book your table here: https://saltmarketsocial.co.uk/#tablebookings

Can I book multiple tables?
Yes, you can make multiple bookings. Each booking is for 90 minutes. However please be aware that due to government legislation regarding social distancing we cannot facilitate the grouping of tables to accommodate parties in excess of 6, or the mixing of people from more than one table as this would be in contradiction of the legislation. Therefore we cannot group tables together.
Can I book for more than 6 people?
Due to government guidelines regarding social distancing we cannot facilitate the grouping of tables to accommodate parties in excess of 6, or the mixing of people from more than one table as this would be in contradiction of the legislation. Therefore the largest group you can book for is 6. You can make multiple bookings but please be aware that we won’t be able to group tables in similar locations.
How Long Is My Booking For?

If you wish to extend your table please ask when sat down and we will if it’s at all possible.
How do I order food & drinks?
You can request food tokens (worth £3 each) from our waiting staff which can be exchanged for meals and snacks direct with our vendors. Menus for all the food stalls will be on your table alongside an extensive drinks menu. To adhere to social distancing guidelines we politely ask that only one member of your party orders the food. Once ordered the vendors will bring the food direct to your table but please be aware that if you are ordering from multiple vendors the food may arrive at different times. Drinks orders will be taken by our waiting staff, added to your tab and brought to your table. At the end of your reservation our waiting staff will present you with your bill (minus any unused tokens).

To minimise contact between our staff and customers we strongly encourage contactless payments where possible, however we do accept cash as an alternative.
What happens if I am late for my reservation?
