Not a trucker just a joe bloggs.
We travel down from Northwich, Cheshire several times a year just to have the "big Breakfast"
It's as good now as when we found it all those years ago.

great site - something which I'm pretty sure is true is that one of the blokes out of Showaddywaddy owned the Saltbox. Maybe someone can confirm (or deny that). I don't think it was Romeo Challenger - the drummer, but one of the others.

I think the Showaddywaddy connection was with the Silver Wheel cafe which was further down the old A50 towards Derby, in Etwall. We're off to the Salt Box for breakfast tomorrow.

the saltbox was started by les botham and was a old shack over the road next to the pub on uttoxeter rd


appalling access for disabled people,been in 3 times and last time i asked why they didnt have clearly identified disabled bays. i was told they didnt need them because the land was private. must say though food was bang on but staff watched me struggle when i had to collect my own food and drink. i dont ask for much out of life just whats right


No, the guy from Showaddywady owned the Silver Wheel cafe just down the road in Hilton

It's now been knocked down. I used to live next door to it
