  • A good place to visit for interesting information about mining also a good cafe to stop and have a snack in home cooked food at a reasonable price
  • Very interesting museum. Worth the trip up here especially if combined with the railway and Miners Library in neighbouring Leadhills (which is actually the higher of the two villages, despite what the signs say!)
  • Fabulously friendly staff, the cafe was superb, best coffee had in ages, staff knowledgeable about the food too
  • Returned after many years absent to find the whole place so alive. Glad to see its history being preserved in the museum. Very nice staff and had a nice snack in the tea room. Hot rolls at reasonable prices {link sausage one was just perfect ]. Again staff were attentive and friendly .Highly recommended. Visited 10/06/2016.
  • Nice Cafe attached with great soup
