This is always worth looking at, as the eclectic collection of sculpture and paintings contain a wide variety of styles and subject matter. It's not a large place but there's much of interest to see.

We'd been browsing the books in the attached bookshop so decided to stop for re-fuelling. The café was very busy - good soup and burgers of various types. Nice ice cream too. Good service despite the crowds.
