My rating is based on our experience in the cafe which was in contrast to the centre in general. Visitor centre is great but the service and food at the cafe were disappointing at best.

Although the visitor centre is no longer really new, it is a massive improvement on the small single room that it used to occupy. Much useful local information available. The only drawback is that the adjoining toilets close early.

The cafe had two other couples when we stopped by for some lunch. Completely ignored by staff at the counter to the point that we just turned around and walked away. The attached toilets to the centre had rubbish overflowing from waste bins outside which...More

I love this visitor centre. It is full of history and pride for the local area but still remains interesting. The shop sells a lovely range of gifts. Unfortunately it is let down by the cafe. It was really quiet but the tables were messy,...More
