  • although it is a small cafe it is very busy, and you can see why. Food is fresh and cooked on the premises including cakes and scones which are very scrumptious  more »
  • There is a smashing, small exhibition on the Egyptology work of the Barnsley-born painter, Ernest Harold Jones, curated by Professor Joann Fletcher. I had not seen his work before, but my, what a tale...  more »

  • I love this place because it's small and friendly, catering for kids as well as art buffs, with a cute little cafe too. The exhibitions give you insights into the collectors lives as well as the artists, and a sense of what life was like for well to do Victorians with a sense of public duty. But I mostly like it because it has two large portraits of local characters from the working class, Peggy Airey and Watter Joe. The artist, Abel Hold, was my great-great-great grandfather, and these must have been a labour of love.
  • A small, compact and lovely art gallery in the heart of Barnsley. Has small shop, cafe and toilets and has a fabulous homely feel to it. There are some works of arts by local artists on exhibition too for a small price. Worth a visit.
  • Sin the cage, the service is so friendly and efficient, time and time again. This is a business which others should aim towards. The newly created gallery is very interesting.
  • Serve a lovely healthy lunch. Plus coffee and cakes that are home baked x Exhibitions in the gallery are changed regularly but need to have more local exhibitors x
  • Terrific exhibition of art work by Richard Kitson a must see
