  • If you like photography this is worth a visit. The old home of Julia Margaret Cameron it has exhibitions, displays of equipment and is nice house too. Nice tea shop. I particularly liked the exhibitio...  more »
  • A pleasure to see the early and later black and white pictures. Interesting to see prints by a pioneer of the genre. The gallery showing images of the 1970 festival brought back a few memories. Overal...  more »
  • Just happened upon this place at the end of a long walk and grateful to find the tea room - very nice cakes & tea sitting outside in the garden. But there's quite a bit more to see at this quirky plac...  more »
  • Great exhibitions in a fab location. The Jimi Hendrix statue is a must see.
  • Very interesting.
  • Dimbola lodge cafe review- not the museum! Without a doubt the worst cafe experience I have ever had- hilariously bad! Ridiculously slow service- we had to get up and find someone to clean our table, bring us menus, take our order etc despite the cafe being half full and there being plenty of waitresses. After an age (and prompting), half our lunch arrived. When we asked for the other half, 15 minutes later an absolute monstrosity was delivered- a salmon and mustard panini. SALMON AND MUSTARD. I had asked for ham and mustard, and instead they brought me this despite it not being on their menu. Maybe this should have been on their menu. The other options were nearly as ghastly, e.g. microwaveable pizzas (chicago town I believe). Not cheap either. The disaster contined. They brought us tea with no milk. We asked for milk. They brought us an empty jug. Hmm... I had to queue some time at the kitchen door behind other angry customers in order to get the bill (despite there being supposed table service- most of the waitresses were just hiding in the kitchen). When I finally got to the front, they had lost the bill- and had no recollection of our lunch. I wish I was similarly able to erase this experience from my memory...
  • Mesmerizing collection of Victorian photography by world famous Photographer . Put that together with a lovely restaurant and you have a great place to enjoy.
  • Friendly atmosphere good food at good prices.
