Ate in the cafe, spent a bit of money in the shop (too easy to do) and found the information about David Mellor & co very interesting.

Second time we have visited and came away with some lovely stuff again. Some of the items are available elsewhere (Amazon) at lower prices but there are some great ideas for gifts which you won't find elsewhere. Nice cafe and the place is immaculate.

Love this place - can go back time and again to see his inspired designs and creations and lovely historical stuff displayed so nicely in a beautiful peak village! Cutlery is my particular favourite but lots of great stuff to look at and buy😎

A wonderful place to visit. If you like modern design, this is for you. Mellor's cutlery is iconic. Follow any shopping spree with great coffee, amazing cake and cheerful and happy staff (despite what other reviewers suggest). Delighted!
