  • We went to the Thomas day here. Such effort was out into the day it was lovely. My three year old loved it. The train rides were really good was lovely to ride on Thomas and daisy and the troublesome trucks. We met the fat controller and watched The Rusty and Dusty show which we enjoyed. Staff were happy and friendly making the experience extra special. Thumbs up from us.
  • My sister held her wedding reception here in June, it's a lovely, unique site with a lot of character. The guests all appeared to love the venue and the kids loved being around the trains. Especially the chance to ride on the mini railway after the meal. Would highly recommend to anyone!
  • I'm not a great train buff, but this place is really interesting for adults and kids, plus there is a very good cafe with great cakes and seating in old rail carriages. Arrive by train. Make a day of it.
  • Very friendly staff and kids love it on Thomas themed days. Just not much choice to eat. Best take own lunch with you.
  • One of the best days out in Suffolk. A hidden gem!
