This was a superb small gallery with probably the best coffee and cakes ever. Unfortunately it has been closed for some time now and as far as we can ascertain is unlikely to reopen. Greatly missed for it's ambience.

Really pleasant art gallery featuring the works of a variety of professional artists. Much more interesting stuff than the usual touristy paintings of Holy Island!! Home made cakes, comfie sitting area and warm welcome. But note it's only open thursday to sunday.
