Selection of food, interesting bric-a-brac to browse. Antiques, old books and records. A nice way to spend a morning. Beautiful and interesting venue.

I’ve always loved uncle Tim’s. And that was before the revamp. It’s even lovelier now though the restaurant isn’t as good anymore. But the second hand bookstore, antique shops and all-round ‘ougat’ make up for that.

various stalls with a variety of interesting articles and antiques. Eatery is well priced and food and drinks are of good quality. Seating inside and outside under trees gives it a country-like feeling

If you're into antiques and collectables, this is the place. Anything from beautiful old furniture, war collectables, old gadgets and art. Not for the bargain hunters though. The little restaurant has the cheapest wine in town, so if you like your sip of wine, you...More
