  • Lovely exhibition of porcelain musical instruments with humorous themes and absolutely fabulous Lionel Lindsay exhibition which is on until April 2018. Free. Lovely place to eat too.
  • Found the gallery accidentally while doing something else in the area, very nice, lots of variety and some nice work by local artists both young and old.
  • A favourite for breakfasts and lunches on the weekend. Can be busy but the food is superb and worth the wait. The coffee is consistently excellent.
  • Great variations of art exhibits, changing often enough that there's always something new to see. Delicious food and coffee in the adjoining cafe.
  • Great art experience for kids xo loved the craft session 😀✍
