Sladers Yard Art Gallery and Licensed Café
Sladers Yard is one of the most ambitious art galleries in the South West, showing contemporary British art, handmade furniture and designer craft. Changing art exhibitions are accompanied by ceramics, sculpture, Petter Southall’s woodwork, jewellery, glassware, leather and textiles by leading British designer craftspeople. Housed in an historic Georgian rope warehouse, with pillared galleries and flower-filled courtyard, it is five minutes walk from the beach and harbour in West Bay, Dorset.
The award-winning Sladers Yard Licensed Café is open serving delicious food every day throughout the summer and autumn. Regular and varied live evening events with dinners are a highlight. The venue is also available for catered private parties and weddings.
