Arrived for a day visit. But because the national glass centre had decided to allow a conference to be held in the building on this day, they decided to close the brasserie at 11am until 2pm. Luckily we arrived 5 minutes before it closed so were granted the privilege of coffee and a fruit scone. But for several unfortunate others who arrived moments after us, they were unable to get aanything to eat or drink on the premises. As it was we had to leave earlier than we wished as I suffer a condition meaning I need to drink water very regularly but with the brasserie closed and no other water dispensing facility available, was unable to get a drink of water and had to leave. On top of this the conference attendees had used up all the free parking meaning we had to pay £6 to park in scruffy un-tarmaced overflow council run car park instead.
If it wasnt for the excellent quality of the glass blowing demonstration and the friendliness and helpfulness of all the non-brasserie staff this might have ruined our day. So highly recommend a visit to the centre but make other arrangements for food and drink. Or call before you visit to ensure there are no conferences being held before you decide to visit.
