Well worth a visit to see the David Hockney exhibition and other floors to explore. The book shop has a wonderful atmosphere.

Let's be honest, when you visity an art gallery or museum you're hard pressed to find a decent cuppa and a savoury snack. Not so at Salts Mill, where the upper floor diner attracts foodies in its own right. A great place to eat, lovely food, surrounded by original Hockney art... what more can you ask for?

Very impressive site the fantastic Hockney Gallery is worth the visit alone, loads to see and do. Take a walk around Saltaire Village as well. Nice shops and Cafe's. Roberts Park and a walk along the canal is lovely and relaxing too. And all this with no charges for parking or admission.

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
