Went to the restaurant for something to eat. We found the menu far too fussy and couldn’t see anything we really wanted so settled for garlic chicken & bacon baguette. When it came it was very underwhelming, bacon was soggy, chicken was bland and I...More

This place was a real find. Beautiful food and fresh produce and an excellent play area. If you need an oasis with kids while travelling this place is it.

The outdoor kid are is brilliant. Kept the little one entertained as we had coffee and food. The Cumbria tasting platter things was great. Nice ham. Good pork pie and good pickles. The kids pizza was nice. A good size and well made.

This place is really excellent value. It is very interesting with amazing craftmanship on display with the fully scaled-down models. There is a lift so no need to worry about stairs.

Our WI had lunch here yesterday. To say we were disappointed is an understatement. The food was awful! The chips were soggy and we asked for our quiche to be served hot. It was not even warm. Very expensive for the bad quality of food.

You'd be better off asking on their site. Only visited for short times and not tried their butcher's meat.
