We often come to the centre for activities fur the children and lunch. Today we came to walk the Maze which we enjoyed in such lovely weather. At the end of the walk we treated the children to an ice lolly from the Maze shop. It was an extremely hot day and the kids were hit and bothered after paying... More

Having checked website before arrival there was nothing to indicate most of the units are closed on Mondays. Very disappointing visit!

There are lots of lovely and interesting shops and the Timbers Restaurant is gorgeous and full of character with great breakfast as well. Very nice place to visit!

Stopped in here for an early lunch with my friend today. A bit dark interior but nice old music and nice staff. We had eggs benedict but changed ham for mushrooms. It was delicious, if anything too filling ! Would recommend.

The place was empty and the three staff were chatting in the kitchen. When I went back to the counter to ask if someone could take our order I was rudely told by... More

First visit to the restaurant. Strange opening times in the evening. Used Groupon voucher, so booked in advance, but the place was very quiet on a non-tribute act Thursday. Limited menu. Friendly service. Food was good. Big desserts. Would go back.

Having been to the on site restaurant several times, I found the staff (the owner especially) very rude. The worst case being the owner talking about the party I was with in an extremely negative and offensive way whilst standing in ear shot of said people. It doesn't surprise me the place is always empty. Best avoided as it ruins... More
