“Coffee Shop/Tea Room”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Pleasantly suprised by this little gem which has improved considerably since my last visit. Small menu but only a small place so no suprises there. What is available is very good and reasonably priced. Sandwiches freshly made and served with a decent salad. Would recommend.

“Amazing”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The museum is an amazing little treasure trove , very well laid out with very interesteing artefacts. You could spend an afternoon here easily, for all members of the family from very young to much older! The 'art gallery' was disappointing but we didn't go for that.

“Place to remember”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Lovley little museum, full of history from the local (now defunct) regiment, the Durham Light Infantry. Not the Imperial War Museum, but enough to satisfy, set in beautiful grounds.

“A great way to while away a couple of hours”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Its a great few hours especially for the kids, as they have outfits for the kids to wear and alot of the displays are child friendly given the topic.
It made me very proud to see the modern day soldiers and a few of their stories brought a tear to the eye!!
