I meet up with a friend for lunch every couples of months and we love the atmosphere and the food. It's always excellent service and wonderful food. You need to go early, no later than 11:30 am to get a seat.

Lovely historic Saltaire is a beautifully preserved Victorian model village. The mill built by Titus Salt has been converted to a space for art - notably David Hockney - and interesting art and bookshops. Fascinating to look around - by the canal, the park, the various public buildings and the built got the mill workers. Unique.

Set in Saltaire, the mill has been turned into a museum/ art gallery, with shops and stalls selling quirky items. Numerous Hockney works of art adorn the walls, and even the menu in the cafe is Hockney designed. Definitely worth a visit to learn some of the history of Saltaire

Our guests from London did not know what to expect when we pulled up on a windy and rainy day. The calm and excellent atmosphere soon won them over. Added to this an excellent Diner made them vow to return.

Although Saltaire is a World Heritage site, it is still amazing to find a modern art gallery, bookshop, art store and the other shops in a restored mill between the railway and the canal. The Diner is a bit pretentious but has good atmosphere and varied real food and real alcoholic drinks.Leave two hours for a visit, which is free.... More

I live near this village. I visit regularly. Geographically it is beautiful, and historically it is a wonderful experience to visit. The Mill is a wonderful collection of David Hockney's art, bookshops, and cafes/restaurants You can also walk through the village (see if you can just look into Victoria Hall on the way past) or walk across the river towards...

Marvellous old mill which has been converted into shops and eating places. Lovely village with equally good shops and cafes/bars. Good for a night out or a day out in the nearby Roberts Park and lovely walk up to Shipley Glen and Baildon Moor for the more energetic (only about a mile). Take a picnic, bat and ball or bikes...
