Gets busy on nice days and is priced at the... More

First visit here, beautiful setting, lovely food, friendly staff. Took my Aunt as well who is celiac, and she was really impressed that they did gluten free bread with the delicious soup and had a choice of gluten free cakes! Will most definitely be returning.

My family and I go regularly here because we love the shop which features the cutlery designed and produced by the founder. We visited three weeks ago with my eldest daughter, herself a designer, and her partner who (along with me) is a big fan of the late David Mellor's work. Having passed an hour or so in the shop...

Chanced upon this place when thinking about a morning coffee stop. I had heard of David Mellor but didn't realise he designed such a wide range of items. Interesting small museum, shop and good coffee.

My first visit to the David Mellor cafe/museum/shop was a very pleasant experience. While the food may be slightly expensive, it was tasty and well presented and the cafe staff were polite and helpful. The museum and shop, which are housed in the same building as the cafe, are well worth a visit. All in all a very enjoyable afternoon... More
