This is an art gallery and café. The gallery contains ceramics, greetings cards, paintings and other things by artists with a connection to Romsey. The café is pleasant, with good service and some very nice, though expensive cakes.

Thoroughly recommend Rums Egg, it's a unique space that showcases local artists and talent. The standard of exhibits is extremely high and this also gives you a chance to buy something completely individual. The coffee shop is an added bonus.
