“My husband”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

This was my husbands favourite place until he became ill with advanced dementia, sadly now in a Nursing Home. He was a weeking visitor as he colleted Spite Fires and pictures of them. His one love apart from his career. The last time he went he came back with a WW1 helmet, complete with a dent, possible a bullet. There are 3 floors, but no lift, you can buy anything from an egg cup to an Antique. Don't miss the fabulous place

“Bric-a-brac centre”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

A lot of stuff which is fun to sift through, but the antiques are fewer than the bric-a-brac and the prices tend to be high, so you do need to look carefully to find a bargain. The cafe was truly dreadful other than the view over the valley. The staff were disinterested and the coffee is made with instant coffee. In fact, the most antique part of the whole centre is the cafe: very reminiscent of the 1970s and that isn't a compliment. It is worth a visit but don't stay for lunch.

“Fab place, not sure about antiques”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Really enjoyed scouting around this amazing place. As others have mention, I doubt there are many 'valued' antiques but still a great place to buy, sell & recycle.
I wouldn't take children.

“take time to have a look”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

a great place for hunting down a bargain, and for that something you have been trying to find for ages.
you do have to wade through a lot of junk to find that gem, and that junk tends to be over priced. But I have found many a gem and often go for a cuppa at the tea rooms.

“Looking for Bargins”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Found this place on the internet did read previous review where some one said it was more bric a brac than antiques which appealed as we like a bargain . We loved this place floor after floor of bric-à-brac but also many many antiques . Really enjoyed hunting around found and brought loads of items from coloured glass candle sticks to vintage kitchen items . Spent nearly three hours looking around . Free parking out the back . Would recommend you have a look will be going back .
