Hello SANDYWorcester, I think you may have the wrong location for this review. Unfortunately, we don't serve food. We do have friendly staff and free entry though!

Excellent medical museum, visit made all the more interesting by our wonderfully informative guide Chris. His knowledge of the building itself, the people who instigated building it and who worked there. Well worth a visit.
