Lovely cafe, very friendly staff.
Chose the quiche with 3 types of salad - delicious and plenty put on the plate. Guinness cake was gorgeous too.
Well worth a visit...

Lovely little place. Enjoyed a walk around the arts and crafts for sale and read about the history of the site before popping to the cafe for a takeaway drink and some Rocky road. The staff were very friendly.

The Ropewalk was the site of almost 200 years of rope making, with the family run factory finally closing in 1989. The building has since been regenerated, turning it into a museum, craft shop, gallery and cafe. They had an interesting variety of art, pottery and jewelry on display and you can easily while away an hour or two here.

Lovely cosy cafe. Polite and efficient staff. Gorgeous cakes to choose from. Good selection of paninis with carved thick cut ham! Stack of pancakes for breakfast with red berries, delicious and well presented. Hot chocolate and lovely filter coffee. Well worth a visit

Unfortunately we didn't have time other than to look in the gift shop and enjoy refreshments in the cafe. The gift shop had some very nice and unusual ceramics, much to my wife's liking! The cafe had a good selection of snacks, cakes and drinks. Next time we will allow more time to enjoy the building in full.

This was the site of an old rope making factory, rope being very important to the maritime and fishing industry of the area. The building is the longest registered building in England. Very narrow and very long as rope was twisted and stretched and made ready for all sorts of uses. Supposedly the ropes for the first accent of Mt Everest were made here.

The building now houses spaces for artists, community rooms, a cafe and theater.

If you're heading for the Humber Bridge it's worth making a detour to the pleasant small North Lincs Town of Barton on Humber to visit the Old Ropewalk. Now an art centre and museum it has a lovely shop with locally made artistic crafts, prints and cards. The cafe is a great space and handy for coffee or lunch. You can walk from the Ropewalk to the Waters Edge visitor centre too, and find out about the wildlife of the wetlands along the Estuary shore. Google maps is confusing and tries to send you up a cul de sac of modern houses. Aim for the Tesco superstore and look across to the long redbrick building just beyond. Barton seemed a pleasant small market town and if you like architecture it's worth a walk to St Peter's Church which has a rare Saxon tower. But check opening days. Get the right church too, as the one near the pond is St Mary's - a large and lovely medieval building. All in all it's worth a little detour and there are some grand views of the Humber Bridge as it zooms over the wide Estuary.
