Great old mill in a lovely little village, offering shops, galleries and a restaurant. The walk by the river is lovely, you can take a boat trip if you wish. We weren't keen on the Hockney exhibition, but that's just not our thing.

Having been round the mill before, this visit was purely to it's restaurant and I found the food to be very good although in my opinion a little on the expensive side. The main course dishes were well presented and enjoyable. Service was quick and the staff were friendly. I would certainly recommend this restaurant when visiting the mill itself.

Great building and museum but like others maybe expected more of a museum environment.The adjoining Saltaire village , river and park are well worth coming here though.

Visited Salts Mill today, have been many times before, never get bored with the place, so many things to look at with Hockney thrown in as well. Salts burger at the diner was top notch.

Had expected more of a museum type experience and more history about the mill. The exhibition of work by David Hockney is very well presented. The rest of the building comprises shops and cafes. We were visiting Saltaire village so while there it is somewhere that you need to see as well but I don't think worth a return visit.

Stupidly I didn't look into what Salts Mill was and although I was disappointed not to find an integrated museum, it was not altogether a let down. If you're a fan of David Hockney then this is a must. Oodles of his work abound plus an artists emporium, a book lovers idyll, an outdoors clothing gallery and homeware shop. These... More

We were expecting a display of working spinning and weaving machines, instead there was next to nothing except a large restaurant and shop which were darned expensive

This, along with Robert's Park, is a must if visiting Saltaire. Salts mill has morphed into a collection of eclectic shops plus a couple of places for lunch. There is also some David Hockney works on display. The shops include a massive book section, art related items and an outdoor clothing specialist. At one end is an antique centre that... More

David Hockney exhibition, a brilliant bookshop, artisan quality hand made jewellery, modern kitchenalia, a really good dining area, an antiques centre, the history of Saltaire and Titus Salt, an outdoor clothing section...this is a superb place to visit. Sitting alongside the canal and set at the bottom of Saltaire village (a world heritage site), Salts Mill is a must visit.... More

A fantastic use for the Salt Mill. This building was opened in the mid 1850's by Titus Salt and was at the heart of his Mill empire. Since it has been taken over by the National Trust some years ago it is a combination of a bookshop, cafe/restaurant and an Art lovers paradise.
