For a quick meal and mosey around the store - an excellent place. Food is always good although getting a bit pricey.

Visited here in the Easter holidays for lunch with my 12 year old daughter. Easy to get to and plenty of parking spaces. Lunch was lovely, ok priced and had a great look round after.
