Nice little gift shops and a great cafe have a nice all day breakfast and some great Sunday dinners all at a good price!

RUSSELL BALMER

Plenty of parking, nice shops and café very good food. We used the centre as a base for a walk around the quarry then back for food.

DAVID POWTER

The staff are always pleasant and helpful (even when run off their feet). The menu has a good selection and the food is homemade, would recommend the mince pie with all the trimmings.
