  • This place could be fab. Unfortunately most of the stock is overpriced tat. The children's section is quite good, although very overpriced. Popped into the glass and engraving shop - some lovely work ...  more »
  • Lots of great crafts and items, I spent a fortune whilst there, oops. The restaurant was great, I had moussaka for lunch and apricot creme brulee. Definitely worth a visit, great afternoon  more »

  • We have visited 3 times for different reasons and a couple of the smaller units have never been open. However, it's still nice for a nose about and coffee and cake. The meals look good too
  • Some nice people here who really know their stuff The main shop had some items of interest, but it needed to be sought out. They have an extensive selection of ties from the London Tie Company with patterns for almost any sport or pastime, unfortunately choral singing was not amongst them! Clive in the crystal shop impressed my wife and daughter (the latter is studying crystals and their benefits). They had a long conversation here. The lady in the gallery upstairs was quite knowledgeable about the art and artists on display and another conversation ensued, my daughter having studied art at college. Then we visited the weaving shop and here it was my turn. The weaving lady explained how her new large loom worked and how to produce patterns. It is similar to using a computer spreadsheet apparently. It was from studying looms that Ada Lovelace developed what later became known as computers. Finally, we visited the tea room and had tea and very generous portions of cake at a very fair price.
  • Pleasant food and lovely gift shops on site
  • Good lunch here. Always able to find that ' special' gift for birthdays or anniversary.
  • Good place to eat and lots of gifts and cards
