One of the most unfriendly places I've ever been to. When we entered the shop, the nearest sales assistant didn't even make eye contact, let alone say "hello" or "good morning" to us. She then proceeded to shout across to two other assistants, ending the...More

You enter the cafe through the shop and there are always lots of quirky and interesting things to check out. The food in the cafe is fresh, well prepared and very tasty. Staff do their best to assist and are always very helpful

Stopped for tea and cake. Selection looked great. But millionaire shortbread tasted cheap (especially chocolate ). And my coaliac partner has had a reaction with the gluten free cake which we suspect is due to cross contamination. Shop was good but won't stop there again...More

Yes, cafe is but beware the shop, as a lot of items are on display on random sized display tables, easy to accidentally knock things off.
Do you have an online price list of things to paint , I have a set budget and would like to work out costings before I come so I can tell my kids the options to avoid them choosing something out of my price range , thanks
