The art in this place is really suited to my taste so I love it. We met at least two different staff members and both were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We couldn't resist the cake either so got some to take away!

I've recently taken up painting, and was delighted to find this place so close to my wife's holiday rental house. There's a lot of surprisingly good stuff here, and the prices won't make your eyes water.
