Coffee and cake or cooked lunches certainly worth the short 8 minute walk out of town or short drive. Great value and daringly produced, a venue that has a stunning setting and a guaranteed top class countryside walk on good gravel paths. Once you’ve been...More

They serve organic, often home grown, food which tastes great. We often have the quiches which come with amazing salads. We have also eaten cake there.

Range of interesting cakes, salads looked D-lish, lovely building and in aid of a good cause. Cafe is on the top floor so there are quite a few stairs to climb, worth it for the view if you sit on the terrace

Great place to stop for a weekend coffee / cake overlooking grounds. Always nice selection and reasonable price plus normally possible to get table on balcony which is nice in the sun.

When we arrived today after finally finding the mill we were a little confused as where to park. After abandoning the car in the 'car park' we eventually found the entrance. Walked into the gallery, which was lovely. We climbed the two levels to find...More

Ruskin mill had been recommended to us and I'm so glad we came here for lunch. Really interesting, healthy, tasty food at a fabulous price. The building is also amazing and there was a great photography exhibition in the gallery.

Called in with the grandchildren for coffee and cakes. Very good value for money and have heard from others that lunch is also good.

There is a car park on the right as you turn into the Old Bristol Road from the main road. Or what I do is drive up towards Ruskin Mill and on the left where their buildings start is space for about 5 cars and I try my luck... More

Ruskin Mill Cafe is open from 10am to 4pm, 7 days per week (please call ahead re Easter and Christmas opening times). Alongside teas, coffees and a good variety of home made cakes, we serve lunch from 12.30 To 2.30Pm each day. We are open to the public and during college term time we serve lunches to students and staff between 1 to 1.30Pm. Much of the food is locally sourced - often from our own organic (actually biodynamic) farm, market garden and smokery, and the emphasis is always on good, tasty and nutritious foods. Vegetarian options are always available as are our regular home made soups.
