We were encouraged by many people and the guide book to visit the Tithe Barn. Upon entering we were greeted by a gentleman who offered to tell us about the tapestry. He was very interesting and we learned more than we would have learned on our own. It is a beautiful tapestry and the town should be very proud to own it. The remainder of the museum is very well done, the hands-on activities are as much fun for adults as they are for children. We enjoyed seeing the videos, creating the stained glass and playing the board game on the wall. We wanted to have a meal in the cafe, but there were no available tables. Some tables had only 1 person and could have shared space, but we were discouraged from sitting. Just when we thought a table might be opening, a family rushed in ahead of us and grabbed it. We stood for a few minutes hoping that another might open, and no one behind the counter offered to take our order. We began to feel uncomfortable about watching others eat so we left.

Thank you very much for the review. We're really pleased you enjoyed your time upstairs in the Tithe Barn. I'm sorry we didn't have any tables free when you were looking to eat. In warmer times we are able to make additional space outside to accommodate customers at our busiest times. We will take the feedback on board and see if there is anything we can do to improve customer experience when we are busy.
