We popped in for a late breakfast and the hot filled rolls were excellent. My mum wanted soup and although it wasn’t lunchtime they served it without question. I have to say that the service was truly wonderful. Also try the shop. Highly recommended.

Well worth a visit if you're interested in the military, recording the history of this famous regiment. There's a good quality restaurant which is accessible without having to go through the museum.
