Reviewed January 23, 2012

We saw the Hockney Exhibit which is brilliant. Not too big or crowded and well organized.

“HOCKNEY - MUST SEE - BUT UNHAPPY WITH RESTAURANT”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

The Hockney exhibition is truly awesome! His technique is second to none, and his painting the same scene at different times of year leads one to view trees and the natural environment in a new way. It truly opens your eyes!
Sadly, we had a bad experience in the restaurant. We waited for 30 minutes before our order was taken, and we had to ask for this to happen. Our drinks never arrived, and the food was not good value for money. We will not be using the restaurant again.

“Go into the woods with David Hockney”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

The opening of this exhibition will be one of the most talked about in 2012. This retrospective of David Hockney is mind blowing and the exhibition takes you on an incredible journey through the mind of this genius, who manages to combine his love of the east yorkshire wolds and nature and his influences, using the latest techniques and technologies. He continues to enthrall us with the wonder of the world and his colourful intepretation.
Not to be missed!
