Son took his father - fresh from hospital - and myself out for a treat. We ordered coffee and cake. It took 45 minutes to arrive. I would never go again.

All designed by David Mellor's design team in an iconic ambience and with a café and shopping facilities. Do not miss a visit to this wonderfully-designed facility and check-out a visit to the factory - I think on week-ends only.

I live nearby so I'm a little biased but this is a fascinating place to visit, especially when you can do a workshop tour. A must for Design fans, and the Cafe has some great cakes. Do be prepared to pay!
