Always worth a visit it is a pleasure to return and see the current exhibitions. Friendly and knowledgeable staff take a pride in the exhibits. The cafe serves delicious food well labelled for vegetarians/vegans/gluten free and all delivered very promptly.

Set in interesting buildings, with happy accommodating staff, really good sandwiches, coffee/tea and cakes - not be missed. By the river and a convenient car park (with a tourist information centre) - highly recommended.

Smart craft centre with interesting exhibitions and a popular cafe with lots of gluten free and veggie choices. Good place to spend an hour or so, would be pleased to receive any of the craft items as a gift!
