Re-opening our shops

We are delighted to announce that our House & Garden shop and The Food Hall are both open.

While we’re not able to open all of our shops at this time, we have created pop-up areas within House & Garden to showcase some of our favourite products from the Craft Shop, Little Rascals, Books & Cards and Samphire.

The team have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure our customers get the best Snape Maltings shopping experience while keeping everyone’s safety as our top priority.

Open daily 10am-4pm

Re-opening our cafés

The Concert Hall Café and a new takeaway hut on the Hepworth Lawn, with their beautiful views and abundant indoor and outdoor space, will open to the public from Saturday 4 July.

We have put together a small menu of some of our favourite dishes from The Granary Teashop and Café 1885, supporting some superb local suppliers and produce from on our doorstep. The menu will evolve over the next few weeks as we learn how best to adapt to the new way of working here at Snape Maltings.

Open: Mon-Sat 10am–5pm / Sun 10am-4pm
