Situated as part of the shop/visitor centre, the cafe is frequented by locals and tourists alike. I went with some work colleagues as some had been before and really liked it.

Nice bright, airy room with a. Good feeling of space.

There is a nice selection of soups, sandwiches, lighter bites and also some more substantial choices. There is a also a good selection of cakes, and the coffee is good.

I had sweet potato and bacon soup, which was excellent, along with a sandwich.

Pretty good value and staff are nice too.

This is a bright warm coffee shop with plenty of room between the tables. Service was very good and all products used are advertised as being from local businesses, which is worth supporting.

A good place for a quick snack. Service could be better. Xmas lunch menu looks good value, but you must book!

We had a lovely tour of the Mill and it was absolutely fascinating to see all the different processes and checks that each garment goes through before appearing on the shelves and it was great to get the opportunity to chat to the staff as they worked and see what they were doing. We then went to the cafe had had a truly amazing afternoon tea with freshly made sandwiches and homemade savouries, scones and cakes. Will definitely visit again and take some more visitors.
