We've just had a delicious afternoon tea at the Darley Mill Centre. I'm glad we'd booked as all the tables in our section were in use and the meals coming out to other diners looked great too. The staff were rushed off their feet but couldn't have been more attentive and helpful. It's good to find a place in such... More

This was a good place to eat and shop, but the day after our visit, we passed and saw big closing down signs.

Seems this place has not changed in a year since my last visit..... The big Mill wheel is functioning at the entrance which is good to see, good parking area, clean well kept gardens. Loos under the arch way at the front, adequate and clean... On entering member of staff lacked lustre or enthusiasm towards customers....Pleasant enough....But....???? Good displays of... More

Went for lunch. The Darley rarebit was disgusting . No cheese flavour and horrid brown sauce on plate which made toast soggy. The toad in the hole was undiscribable. The sausages were not cooked in the batter and we're very wrinkly and not freshly cooked . The Yorkshire pudding was burnt and covered in what looked like brown sick. Never... More

I was surprised how small the shopping area was. There was not a lot to buy unless you want sweets or Christmas decorations. I looked into the coffee shop to find only one table not realising that round the corner there was a bigger room. A good selection of cakes. I found the old mill interesting as a building and...

Not totally sure what we expected, but it wasn't this, it's a large old mill, with moving water powered wheel, ducks on the river, situated in the beautiful Nidderdale valley. Pretty much of the building is taken up by retail space, selling any thing from pickles to Christmas trees, bird feeders to women wrestling DVDs. The coffee shop which appears... More

I'm afraid I have to agree with other reviewers, our visit today was met with a very rude woman (waitress/manager?). Everything was negative and too much trouble, felt like we were being told off. Only when I suggested we go somewhere else did her attitude change.The cafe wasn't busy but it took a very long time to get sandwiches and... More

We read the website and they claimed they had a playground and a duck hunt. We got there and asked the girl behond the counter where the playground was and she did not even know if they had one....not a clue! So we had to ask the manager who directed us to it. Some playground, there were 4 things there,... More
