“More like a cafe”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Only average based on the fact that the seating area is in the middle of a public area and is very crowded and noisy. You have to queue for food, which takes an age, and the food is very mediocre to be generous.

“amazing art”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

you have to visit this gallery - astonishing that the city elders were buying much of this as contemporary art up to 150 years ago. Some world class paintings.

“a tardis of a place”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Entering the gallery it may, at first,seem a very small place but do not be fooled this is a real box of delights. From medieval to modern the art is impressive for a provincial gallery and the gem of a craft gallery on the ground floor is not to be missed. Temporary exhibitions are always impressive and well curated and span a rich variety of areas. This is a place to return to again and again.
