Love going here it's like another world. Had afternoon tea at Penny Black the most outstanding place for afternoon tea that I have been to. Service and food all excellent and the best pork pie I have had anywhere. Tannery shopping is worth a visit

Nice to stroll around and window shop. No high street stores here - boutiques and quirky home ware stores. Not many options for a coffee.

Sitting here drinking Cassels and Sons Golden Age lager, waiting on a friend. The beer here is invariably good, and I often get the calamari as a bite to eat. No need today but still tempted. Sitting outdoors under shade, probably best given the sun...More

Yes it is a little out if the way but a cool concept - a historic old building find a new life as the home of quirky boutique shopping. You can find anything here- from antique and second hand stores to clothes shops and cosmetics....More
