Visited today with my 4 yr old g.niece. Staff were very young, uninterested and too busy making slime to deal with us. Ceramics were reasonably priced however, the £4 studio fee is a nonsense. The shop was clean and tidy and the kids seemed to...More

Been here a few times with the kids and its always a winner, they love painting and getting messy and its better being able to do it here than at home. Reasonably priced and friendly staff.

Lovely , homely cooking. I would recommend the soup which is always homemade and served with a smile. Tucked away up a close it is compact but well worth seeking out - look for the lifesize cow at the entrance.Very reasonably priced.
