  • Had a delicious quiche, salad and fries here although they were very accommodating and I could varied this meal. The quiche was home made and very tasty. Unfortunately they are not open through the winter and are now losing until Mothers Day 2018.
  • Haven't been here for few years. Has really changed for the better really good. They gave updated and changed all exhibits. Cafe reasonable prices too. Well worth a visit
  • A great location, had a splendid day out with sister and nephews, great for children and adults alike, lovely cafe too and plenty to do.
  • Really good day out. Such fun/sorrow to see how we once lived.
  • Good layout and informative for its size. Only down side is the entry price is very high and not good value for money. Wait till an special offer day is best
