Stopped by to listen to a wind band on a Sunday afternoon, lovely venue but if you visit the coffee shop beware it's very expensive... 2 milkshakes and 2 sundaes £22, lots of nice seating was set out and the acoustics were great

We visited here for the café so didn't see it in all its glory. I'm sure if there was a band playing this would be a great place to sit with an ice cream.
