“Lunch and shop”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Visited on holiday in the area. Rainy cold day in the forest and needing lunch. The only place open but lovely once inside. Friendly staff trying to carve pumpkins for the evenings Halloween party. Limited menu, we had paninis which were good value for money. Small shop with craft items for sale. Centre appears to be used for meetings, courses etc. if you want a value for money light lunch then this is the place to come.
