Lovely little gallery with a gorgeous garden. First visited during the Jane Bown exhibition and planned a revisit the following week to take another look. Sadly on the 2nd visit (Saturday lunchtime) we were clearly in the way as the staff wanted to photograph and close the exhibit :(
A really enjoyable gallery-interesting local exhibitions of art, self - serve coffee bar with home made cakes, even a secondhand bookshelf or and a lovely garden in which to wander and reflect.
Lovely little gallery with friendly atmosphere and a wonderful secret garden. Largely staffed and maintained by enthusiastic volunteers.
Lovely place for a quiet cuppa and a wander. Great kids activity bags too
A fabulous few hours for anyone with an interest in ceramics, with some amazing delft in particular, but a good mixture overall. The tea room has delicious home made cakes and the staff are friendly and polite. There was a historical photograph exhibition set up in a large gallery on the day of my last visit, I imagine one of many temporary exhibits and exhibitions! Well worth a visit, in my opinion..
