Food is quite good, and the space is pleasant with plenty to look at. All the artwork is for sale, and a lot of it is very high quality.

Visited for browse around last saturday, and enjoyed looking at the array of art on display here, sadly everything was a little out of my price range so no actual purchases.

A lovey visit today, some beautiful works, but no purchases made. They sell lots of different mediums, glass, ceramics, oils, watercolours, bronzes, etc. There’s also the kitchen upstairs at the back which does good food.
