  • I love the setting of the Holburne cafe but would it hurt to go the extra mile and serve a coffee at 4.31 when closing at 4.30. I think the running of the cafe lacks imagination for what it could be. A beautiful day like today it could be open into the early evening with a bit of food and music. It is never short of customers. Surely it could do better than the odd late Friday once a month.
  • My first time there. Wednesday after 3 it was free to visit. Really interesting and cleverly curated exhibitions. Good cafe and plenty of outside space for kids to let of steam and adults to relax.
