Very disappointing, Expected wider range of stock. One small room with limited stock. Good level of interest from one staff member in charge but nothing like the range inferred in previous reviews etc. Left feeling deflated and empty handed.

Interesting to look at the museumesque room and be told about the history and current abbeys. Lovely food and friendly staff, wouldn't feed a hungry person though!
