What a find. Was going to have afternoon tea in salt's mill, but it's worth exploring Shipley to discover this eccentric jewel. Great atmosphere and service, and a cream tea full of Yorkshire value and finesse. We'll be back...

Hidden away behind the indoor market, Interlude Tea Room brings an ambience and quality not often found in today's busy times. Great food, all made and baked on the premises (including their bread), wonderful service and a chance to chill out before returning to the 21st century.
