We popped into the centre whilst on a visit to Clare. I can remember coming here several years ago (as a teenager!).
There are lots of nooks and crannies to explore, and lots of stairs to climb. Prices are on the whole reasonable. If you like antiques this is worth a visit.

On drizzly days the indoor tearoom is cozy, but on sunny days you can sit out front, either under the shade of the old loading dock or in the sun. Pleasant light lunches and really great salted caramel brownies. The occasional swan wanders up from the river (don't feed her!) and the Warehouse itself always has some bargain or another. Good parking and walks.

Thank you for this great review of our tearoom. The homemade salted caramel brownies are very popular.
We have bags of quality floating swan and duck food available to purchase for 50p and bring to the nearby river in the country park.

We had a wonderful time looking round this amazing antique centre then went into the cafe for a drink and snack. All the empty tables were littered with dirty crockery but we sat down and moved the dishes aside and waited for the waitress. There were two young women working there at the time. We waited and waited while one of them pottered about, clearing tables, but failing to come anywhere near us or even acknowledging our presence. In the end I went to the counter to see if I could order there. Another young woman saw me but turned away, again not even acknowledging us. I waited a minute or so but she continued to ignore me. By now I was thoroughly fed up and we left, to take our custom to No 1 Deli int he High Street where we were welcomed and served immediately. Not impressed at all with being ignored like that at the antiques centre! Will not return.

Sorry you felt ignored when you sat down in the tearoom on your visit to the antiques centre.
We have a notice asking customers to order at the counter and apologies for the misunderstandings.

Great traditional teashop at the front of the old mill containing the antiques centre. Attractive outside tables, seemingly using furniture and table items from the antiques centre. My small butter dish must have been lead crystal it was so heavy.
We just had coffee and toasted teacakes, which came with butter and jam, and free coffee refills. All excellent and good value, with friendly service as well.
