  • Lovely bright cafe and beautiful gallery. Well worth a visit. Pleasant cafe staff offering a good selection of cakes and lunches. The scones are delicious - perfect texture, light and not dry. Best I've had in a long time. Also not too big. That's probably enough about scones! Beautifully renovated building a real treat to visit.
  • Great variety of exhibitions. Very interesting. Free entry with voluntary donation. The short film was difficult to hear for a deaf person as no subtitles. Great cafe too. Would recommend.
