They try to make something out of nothing. Really wasn’t impressed. Very limited food choice, uncomfortable and cold seating. Certainly wouldn’t bother going again.

Visited for morning coffee. Fire burning in the cafe, lovely selection of cakes ( iced slice particularly). Nice to wander round the manor, there are some interesting exhibits, and a very good second hand book stall. The grounds are extensive and very nice.
