Pleasant spot for lunch

Had a really pleasant lunch at the Darley Mill Centre. We rang ahead to book as we were using a Groupon. Upon arrival we were greeted and shown to our table, the Groupon deal was then explained to us. Maybe a limited choice but we had no complaints what so ever. We both had the tomato soup which... read more

Went for lunch with friends and had a lovely meal. Everything freshly cooked, very friendly staff and the desserts were excellent. Walked around the mill shop afterwards which was lovely. Great meal and I would definitely recommend it. I will certainly be returning!!

Meals included chicken pie, cottage pie, lasagne or fish and chips with apple pie, fruit crumble or tray bake for dessert plus tea or coffee. We had to wait a while to be seated as got sent... More

Very nice mill conversion, with shopping on three levels. Good range of items to purchase. Very good busy restaurant. Ample parking outside.

Hi I am pleased that overall you enjoyed your time at The Darley Mill Centre. Unfortunately the steps to the toilets from the restaurant are steep but The Mill is a listed building & we have to comply to strict building regulations. There are toilets on the downstairs floor that are on a better level. The signs are up letting... More

We called here on the way to fountains abbey for some lunch. Being a blue badge holder we parked on the front in disabled area. We were met at the door by Santa and elves rattling buckets for donations. I felt this to be a bit rude as we had just arrived. We proceeded to the cafe and were told... More

We were passing and out of nowhere poppped up this place. Lovely atmoshpere in the shop and a cafe which was almost full was a good sign. Just had 11s but was pleased with the service and the prices. Well worth the stop.

We've been here many times before and the coffee is great and so are the cakes. The restaurant is so quaint and has a lovely ambiance, with open fires and beamed ceilings. We cannot go to Harrogate without stopping here first!

My mother and I decided to have a run out to Darley Mill today to combine a bit of lunch with a spot of shopping. I suppose, being early November, we should have anticipated the overwhelming display of over-priced Christmas tat but, as the previous reviewer said, we did feel a bit "bah humbug" too. However, more importantly, when we... More

It's very difficult to know what to make of the rather conflicting reviews for the restaurant at the Darley Mill Centre. Let me say how we got on when we visited on 25 October 2014. The first thing is the sweep of steps going up to the entrance -- not steep but quite a few of them. Once inside there... More
