Food was lovely, staff friendly. The play area in the cafe was great especially the big ship. The venue facilities are great and the views fantastic. Great day out to relax and feel like your escaping it all.

It is quite tricky to find at first but if you look for the signs, its easy ! What a Victorian work of art and engineering and without the need to explain, the place does it for you ! So relaxing !
