/ Open Day FAQs

Reservations – No booking is required, please just turn up at your convenience and we will seat you as soon as a table is free.

Getting here – We're situated bedside the River Colne and Huddersfield Narrow Canal in West Slawit, a pleasant half-hour walk from Slaithwaite and Marsden villages. We encourage walkers, cyclists, and those using public transport. Cycle racks are available outside the front of the roastery (but please bring a lock)

Parking – Our main car park is situated at the REAR of Holme Mills with plenty of space. We kindly ask that you drive very slowly on-site. Avoid parking on West Slaithwaite Road itself, to help keep the road clear and safe. Please do not park in front of the houses next to the mill.

Dogs – As much as we love our four-legged friends, unfortunately, we cannot have dogs inside the roastery/indoor pop-up areas; but they're very welcome in the outdoor spaces.

Food offering – For each event, we will endeavour to have a selection of vegan/gluten-free/non-dairy options available, but some cakes and pastries might be subject to availability. Any dietary concerns at all, please speak to a member of our team on the day.

Environment – We have several residents, neighbours, and local wildlife, please respect their privacy and help us to keep the area clean and tidy - thank you.

Accessibility – We have a fully accessible toilet, available for customers. Plus, baby changing facilities.

Extra curricula - The Zapato Brewery tap room and beer garden (next door) is also open from 12 pm each Saturday, and often has a pop-up street food truck (please see their information for times and details)
