  • Good museum. Lovely, airy very popular cafe in a great venue at a good location. Wonderfully, no piped music in the cafe. Enthusiastic cafe staff. Free parking for visitors. Very cycleable via North Inch. Good playground nearby on the Inch.
  • Excellent food although the service is hit and miss sometimes. Would definitely recommend this place for food. Close to the North Inch playpark as well which is good if you have children.
  • staff very friendly on entrance, reasonable choice in restaurant although bread in sandwich was stale as was my carrot cake which might have been great as it had all the right ingredients
  • We had a great time there!
  • Full of history, amazing guides.
