Great gallery and tea room. Could recommend the peanut butter and banana cake - yummy! Hidden away just off Sheep Street so good find.

The gallery contains a wide variety of work - painting, collage, pottery, jewellery, glass, furniture and many other media - ranging from the quirky to the sublime. The silversmithing workshop upstairs is fascinating. The coffee shop is comfortable and shabby chic in style, with a good choice of teas and coffees, and some lovely cakes/biscuits, all at reasonable prices. Well... More

I only see one room of exhibition. Although the exhibition is informative and gives a good history overview, I first thought that was just an introduction to the whole museum. When I found out that was the only room to see, I felt rather upset as the entrance fee of four pounds is not quite cheap. They also had another... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I wonder if you have perhaps confused us with Court Barn Museum near St. James's Church as we do not charge an entrance fee and have a lovely coffee shop, historic silversmiths, thriving artists co-operative and an award winning jeweller to visit spread across two floors. Do give us a... More

Sheep Street where the Old Silk Mill is located is well worth a visit if you are visiting the most delightful town of Chipping Campden, probably the prettiest village in the Cotswolds. Within the mill is the wonderful gallery with works of more than twenty artists on display , from watercolours to oils to pottery to excellent and eye-catching sculptures... More

A time warp! Truly amazing trip back in time and a small selection of items to purchase. The skills have been passed down through the generations. Truly a family business and top quality craftsmanship.

The Old Silk Mill is worth taking some time to visit. Local artists display their work and many also work on site. Harts Silversmiths is wonderful. Our children love seeing sheets of silver, half made items and beautifully finished items. Not only does it look and feel like you're stepping back in time but you will be welcomed by the... More

I was staying in the area in my campervan and came across the Silk Mill by accident while mooching in the rain. What a wonderful place. The silversmiths area on the 1st floor was like stepping back 100 years. A real live museum with a very nice and pleasant man who was happy to show us what he was making... More

Arts and crafts at their finest! Ideal for the visitor to UK wanting to take home something special. The crowning glory was the traditional silver smith on the top floor - tap, tapping away at precious metals to produce exquisite pieces of silver etc. You are transported back over 100 years with the artifacts and the atmosphere. Don't pass this... More

Tucked away off the Main Street, this place is well worth a visit. Firstly it has an excellent cafe, serving good coffee, cakes and lite bites, secondly it has a wonderful gallery, packed with work by genuinely local artists, thirdly it has a jewellery making outlet, and last but by no means least, you can visit the Hart Silversmith workshops!...
