Unfortunately my visit here was ruined by an incredibly rude member of staff. Severely disappointed with the service I received. I will make a formal complaint as well as this review. While we were there mistakes were made with orders. I shall never go here...More

This was a very disappointing experience. Pictures of a man, dressed to look like a sheep, crawling through the countryside. We did not appreciate this exhibition at all. Perhaps we are too old. The café looked nice.

The Graham Shapland and Freya Dooley exhibitions were both brilliant. Thought provoking and interesting. Great gallery space, cafe and shop. Highly recommend it

A very high quality gallery. Consistently highbrow, I could do with a more varied programme, but I suppose middlebrow art is available elsewhere. Great cafe.

The gallery itself is nice and airy, well laid out. However the exhibits at the time we visited did not really get my attention. One part was very dark, and the route through not always clear. Seen better at the Baltic. (worse too!)
