Run by Dubliners, Andrew Costello and Rebecca Lynch the emphasis on the menu at Salt n Bone is on high quality pub food made with locally sourced meat (though there are some veggie options).
A long list of sumptuously tasty looking cocktails is on offer, made from an impressive display of spirits behind the well-stocked bar. Dedicated beer drinkers like me can choose from a huge range of bottled brews and a changing selection of 6 beers on tap. The menu includes suggestions for which beer styles may be best suited to each dish.
I washed my food down with two beers from local Berlin Breweries: ‘W’ IPA from newcomer Wolfgang and a Pale Ale from Berliner Berg.
Steffi and I couldn’t resist sharing the Breakfast Scotch Egg – ‘a soft boiled egg wrapped in bacon, sausage & maple Syrup, crumbed and fried crispy’, which came with a gribiche sauce and I could happily have eaten 3 or 4.
We drooled over racks of ribs, burgers and the Salt n Bone platter for two being served at other tables but couldn’t be distracted from ordering the Sunday roast that we had both been dreaming about since it was announced on Twitter in the morning.
Sunday Roast is Sage & Garlic stuffed Turkey wrapped in Bacon with Bread Sauce, Roast Potatoes, Glazed Carrots & Beetroot Purée!

We were delighted with our choice.
On a previous visit we were equally pleased with Cornfed Chicken Supreme, Potato & Celeriac Smash, Beetroot Puree, Roma Tomatoes & Cider Honey Jus.
A Sunday roast is for me intrinsically linked with my mum’s cooking and family time so it’s well-suited to the cosy, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere at Salt n Bone.
Salt n Bone is on Schliemannstraße in Prenzlauer Berg and the kitchen is open Tue – Sun, 17:00 – 23:00 – the bar stays open later for those wanting to turn a relaxed meal into a boozy session.
