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:Sent on 07/23/2020
* 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!Sent on 10/07/2019

The Old Salt’s staff was amazing to work with throughout our wedding. We had met with them multiple times on our wedding site to make sure everything was going to work smoothly. The food was amazing and was a highlight of the event. All of the staff was very professional and would recommend to anyone. Thanks again!Sent on 06/16/2019
