Once you know it's EWM then you can know what to expect. Looked in to cafe for an afternoon cake....looked disappointing, didn't stay. Notice it's recently been demoted from 3 star to 2 star tourist attraction.

We called hoping to find an exciting bright mill shop. What we got was a standard dull Edinburgh Woollen Mill, with nothing new in it to distinguish it from all of the others. There was also a strong smell of cooked onions wafting greasily from...More
