Loveee The Old Salt!

The Old Salt was incredible. My now husband and I used them for our wedding and I'm so glad we did. Sarah was incredible to work with and the service day of was out of this world. The food.... the FOOOD! I'm still getting compliments on how good it was a month later when I see people. They cook everything fresh on site.. whether your venue has a kitchen or not (mine didn't) and it was out of this world. They have incredible prices, even better staff and the food... perfection. If I had to do it all over again I'd hire them in a heart beat. Thank you to The Old Salt fo rmaking our wedding that much better!

Outstanding Service, Quality of Food, and Value

I contracted The Old Salt to cater my daughter's July 2020 wedding at Birch Hill Farm in Gilford, NH. Birch Hill Farm and The Old Salt have put on a number of weddings and the two vendors worked great together to make the wedding a huge success. I selected the Old Salt for a number of reasons:
* I was a frequent patron of their restaurant when I worked in Hampton and always had good food and service
* The Old Salt menu options were varied and they were willing to work with us on whatever we wanted
* The value (quality of food and price) is exceptional
* The Old Salt can provide their own bartenders, if desired (one stop shopping for food and beverage)
* There are huge benefits when the venue host and caterer have prior work histories of putting on weddings and obviously work well together.

I found Sarah and the staff at the Old Salt very friendly and easy to work with. In the unusual circumstances of COVID-19, we weren't sure if the July wedding was going to happen. During this whole uncertain period, Sarah was in frequent contact with us regarding Gov. Sununu's re-opening plans, CDC guidelines, and what steps the Old Salt was taking to make the wedding party, attendees, and her staff safe should weddings be allowed in time. With just 5 weeks advance notice that wedding receptions were again being allowed in NH and our wedding was back on, Sarah diligently worked with us to put together the full menu and beverage needs with our changing guest numbers and helped create custom wedding cocktails.

On the day of the wedding the entire food was outstanding; the main menu portions were more than generous; the staff was professional and friendly. I highly recommend without any reservation or doubt The Old Salt to cater any function.

Old Salt Catering

We had such a great experience with the Old Salt --- the food is definitely one of the more stressful items at a wedding, and they really helped make sure that everything went seamlessly. All of our guests loved the food, and the service was excellent --- the food came out quickly and well done. Can't recommend them enough! Joe and Sarah were a pleasure to work with!
