Delightful location, with warm staff on both cafe and shop. Cafe very inviting, shop with a variety of unusual items, and museum galleries though small were excellently displayed in a traditional museum way. This is not the place for modern interactive displays. Impressive model of...More

This a charming restaurant with an unexpected amount of style. Good cooking and good value. It's enough to make the cafe the destination rather than the Museum.

I'd have only given 3 stars if it weren't for the delicious afternoon tea we enjoyed. The gallery needs more works on display. The Karel Lek exhibition was a little disappointing compared to similar I've seen before on Anglesey.
