Its a must visit if you are going to Saltaire, been going for donkeys years and service is very good, manager is excelllent and keeps everything flowing with a personal service and menu is excellent - good for vegetarians and the food is fresh. Excellent selection of homemade cakes.

I have eaten at Salt's on many occasions. More often than not its just been for a coffee and piece of cake. Both are usually OK, but not amazing. If you are having a mooch around the mill and fancy a break its worth stopping off. The unique setting inside the mill is always enjoyed by people visiting for the... More

Salts Mill is a real treat for all the family, the History boards and story of the mills history on the tiop floor is well worth a visit. The lower floors have been utilised in a variety of ways and are worth a stroll around. The mill is at the heart of Saltaire and this world heritage site is well... More

Although we found the interior of the mill disappointing it wouldn't do for us all to be the same. If you are not interested in books or paintings then it's not for you. However there is a Home section which is very very expensive to purchase anything. Visitors can use the three floors but all seem the same. There is... More

On the whole it's fantastic, I'd live here. The bookshop, the smell of print combined with the most beautiful floral displays, peace & tranquillity it was a treat to my senses. The Hockney artwork & story is interesting even if you're not into art. But the best bit for me is the story on Titas Salt, it's a fascinating piece... More

Last week we visited Shipley and Saltaire in Yorkshire. Salt's Mill is a fascinating building, there is a large collection of some of David Hockney's latest digital art, including several portraits that have been drawn digitally, you can see the skilful work he ahs put into them. There are books for sale, art equipment and other shops in the complex.... More

A very interesting place to spend a day. This is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The mill is beautifully preserved, the Hockney works are beautiful and the history is well worth exploring.

A must visit place. From the moment you see the outside of the building you are struck by the industrial grandeur of the enterprise. Inside everything has been done with so much care and attention to detail - an amazing balance between retaining the heritage and illustrating creative design. The internal structure and the modern furniture, etc are in perfect... More
