Had lunch here last week. What great tasty interesting offerings they have, especially for someone like myself that requires gluten free options.

The history of the building is fansinating - worth wondering around and reading the info cards. The building is filled with interesting art from local artist and artist further afield. Lots of narrow, steep stairs to negotiate to be able to gain access to all...More

Food was amazing, but staff seemed to be rushing us through. Didn’t remove any of our dirty plates between courses so the table was FULL. Worth of visit for the food and a tour of the gallery.
