Excellent shopping with unusual and attractive homewares and furnishings at fairly reasonable prices. Food in the cafe upstairs was average and be prepared to wait around an hour for your meal even when it is not full of customers.

This a great place to wander around the shops and galleries. They are all well spread out in the various buildings. It was a quiet day when we went so no problem with parking but I can image it does get very busy. There is a great home shop with a nice deli attached. would recommend a visit.

Lovely shopping complex as well as the iconic concert hall, all set by the marshes and the river Alde.

The 'Maltings' has so much to offer; from it wonderful concert hall, excellent but pricey shops and beautiful walks. Something for everyone. The day we visited it was cold and rainy so the boutiques pulled us in. What a fantastic place - pricey but fun!

Easy to find but in such a tucked away spot. Amazingly restored Maltings turned into a top notch music venue. Loved having my daughters school able to perform at such a professional location. They really enjoyed having their own dressing room. A great day!!

We came here because it was raining. The buildings and the history about them was interesting, and it was good to see that there were lots of small businesses and some housing on this site, plus the concert hall. The shops were interesting although we didn't purchase anything. There's a big one way system with lots of different parking spaces,... More

With a small time window allowed worried this big busy pub would be a problem. But no the staff were quick to order and bring food , they even temporarily turned off the fans underneath our table as it was so rattly with no probs. Lovely food, great local beer

A great place to wander around all housed in an old maltings. There are several shops - gifts, homeware, clothing, craft, antiques, art gallery etc all alongside the River Alde where you can also walk around the marshes. There are also eateries. There is also a river boat trip from the Maltings along the estuary in the summer. You can... More

Quite a varied selection of shops & a few places to eat at Snape Maltings, including cafés overlooking the Alde estuary, a little blustery today owing to storm Doris but enjoyable to mosey around. Antiques, craft store and more . Well worth a visit .
