Visited today with my two year old and a friend with two older children. No real identity and all a bit random. Trip Adviser was mentioned twice by different employees - have management asked them to tout for reviews? The chap in the Big Red Barn I heard twice tell people (including the crowd at the end of a show) that he is self-employed and receives a % of the token value (which I heard him say 30p to a lady outside). Quite frankly this is in poor taste, today it rained and there must have been 40-50 people in the magic show, based on 40 at two tokens each that is 60p per person x 40 = £24 for an hour's work? Even shared with the other girl that's £12 each. I don't earn that an hour! I do not expect to hear staff talking about their salaries.
Staff seemed lack lustre - well apart from those in Hoppers who were happy and helpful.
Strange experience in the cafe - appalling food selection! Was told there were no sandwiches on offer so asked for a baguette (on the menu) and got told "I'd come on the wrong day, we don't have any, we weren't expecting to be this busy!" REALLY? It was only a few minutes past noon. There was nothing my daughter could drink (I had to leave the dining area to buy still water elsewhere) and everything on offer was terribly unhealthy - I wish I'd taken a picnic.
We won't be re-visiting.
