“excellent restaurant”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

The food is second to none at the restaurant in the visual arts centre. went with a friend for lunch and were lucky to get a table as it seems to be busy at lunchtime most days. definitely would recommend it.

“Great space for contemporary art”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Surprisingly large art gallery for a small town. Constantly changing exhibits, mostly contemporary (i.e. weird but interesting).

The building its self is very modern and worth a look for architecture fans. Set in the attractive grounds of an old seminary (now college)

Restaurant on downstairs.
