Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A fabulous place!!! Really interactive, lots of interesting things for adults as well as children. Knowledgeable and friendly staff and really reasonably priced. Some of this things we loved - the Victorian section, the trenches were incredible, and the children loved feeding the lambs. If we were locals we’d be buying a membership!

    The place is lovely, nice setting and very friendly. The 2 ales I had were fantastic aswell. Mocktail we had was very heavy on the lemon juice and very sour and close to undrinkable . Food was piping hot and tasty, few suggestions not criticisms, nachos were house made and nice but lacked like a cheese sauce or guacamole over the top so were a lil dry and unpleasant to eat. And they’re stated on the menu but I’m guessing we just didn’t see it, but the addition of deep fried mackerel/sardines on the sharing platter was a bit unorthodox and didn’t really fit the rest of the platter but otherwise all good, would come back again definitely and maybe try a different dish.

    Lovely spacious park with beautiful flowers, band stand, putt putt golf, lawn bowling, tennis and a nice playground. A statue of the WW1 poet Wilfred Owen & memorials to the fallen in both World Wars. You can quickly cut through to the shops, cafes, fish & chip shop, pubs & the post office by the playground.

    I'm sorry but I have to chip in after reading some of the reviews. One. Those dog walkers who apparently ruined your visit probably live here and take their dogs out for a walk. wouldnt you if you had access to something like that?

    I took my two boys (aged 8 and 6) on the Santa train on Sunday 3rd December. We had a great time and even had a bit of snow to make it feel extra special! Santa was lovely and had some great jokes for us. All the staff were really friendly and the driver of the steam train let the boys have a look on the engine . They have asked if they can come back next weekend!

    The water tumbling over the spillway is amazing to see, even more amazing to hear. Take a walk over the dam wall.

    Quite a lot to see on our visit to the Museum.We were met by a very pleasant and helpful volunteer who gave an introduction as to what we were about to see on display.He also told us about The Guinness Book of Records Collection that was on display which was quite unique.There is no admission fee but donations would be kindly accepted. Well worth an hour of your time.

    We were passing by and looked through the window and it looked like it would certainly be worth a visit. They had an exhibition on that they described as - An exhibition for established and emerging textile artists working with stitch, fabric and mixed media. What a fantastic range of different types of textiles and it is really hard to describe the work and how talented they all were. It is on until the 19th August, so don't miss an opportunity to view them. There is also a cafe.

    Was lucky enough to have a Party at the Cricket Club. What a fantastic venue, lots of parking, great function room, and everyone had a brilliant time. Good range of beer, and the caterers did an awesome job. Could not recommend it highly enough.
