We have visited here many times before, but not written a review. It was a lovely day today, so we went for a quick look round the brilliant 'homage to Paul Hockney' mill, before heading up to the second floor diner. (There is also an espresso bar on the fourth floor) The mill is a surprising place, full of delightful lilies, and a large bookshop. We passed into the restaurant , and were quickly showed to a table. All three of us had the rib-eye steak, with chips (home made), mushroom, stuffed tomato and lettuce, each cooked to a different degree. All were spot on, and very tasty. All the food on offer is nicely presented, and served by quite cheerful waitresses. It was an enjoyable family occasion, and I would recommend it as a destination for visitors to West Yorkshire.

Visited Salts Diner when at The Mill and had good and bad views.
Good - lovely cakes & milkshakes!
Bad - service a bit haphazard, very busy and loud, very over-expensive for a lunch time sized meal.

Sadly my last couple of experiences here are letting the side down. Menu needs more gluten free options and the basic menu is upteen years old and could do with refreshing.(I am aware there are daily specials). Staff aren't as attentive as they could be, although they are friendly on interaction, there's perhaps more attention to customer focus needed throughout. The setting is lovely and for that I will return, but please just a few small positive changes would go a very long way. Sadly as someone else mentioned the acoustics aren't good and the chairs not at all comfy for those of us with disabilities but if everything else was spot on it probably wouldn't be a issue I'd particularly comment on.

Saltaire provides a perfect example of effective renovation in Britain’s industrial heritage. The Mills shops, galleries and restaurants are well presented and we enjoyed soup, salad and pasta dishes that were generously portioned, tasty and well presented.

The architecture of the old mill is such that toilet locations are somewhat idiosyncratic and there are also far below the standards elsewhere in the mill. The alert to “very hot water” in the gents must be heeded although dealing with this without plugs in the sink can only result in poor hygiene.

I really enjoy coming here, the restaurant is in a mill and has very high ceilings. David Hockney paintings adorn the walls and the view of Saltaire is pleasant. The restaurant is spacious and the food is always good. Every meal I have tried has been tasty and brought to me in good time, which is why I tend to visit on a monthly basis.
