  • Interesting and eclectic collection of modern art. We were there for a business dinner and function and the biscuit factory made for a relaxed and pleasant place to enjoy event hospitality! Some art wasn't to my taste but I find that with art. Also it makes you think about what the artist was trying achieve. I liked Gordon Wilson's stuff the best!
  • A nice place to visit, but the service in the cafe is poor. Visited today and it was very quiet, waited over 15 mins to be served a coffee and it only arrived after a reminder to the staff. It was eventually brought to the table with not a word of apology for the waiting time. Heaven help them on busy days.
