Do wrap up warm. If you intend to descend into the lowest levels of the jail as it is cold. Some of the exhibits could do with up dating (bringing into the 21st century ) We had lunch as soon as we arrived, not cheap but very nice. And as for the hall that we sat in for lunch now... More

As much as it was very interesting, think they could do better with the exhibits . Make them a bit more real and move . Not sure the value was worth it . If you have trouble with walking or stairs this isn't for you . There is 5 floors with winding concrete stairs .

Quite unexpected..what a nice restaurant although when we visited it was very quiet. However the menu was surprisingly basic in a positive way for such surroundings with comfort food together with old favourites and very reasonably priced. Had a good Curry and Chilli which warmed us up having toured the jail on a cold and rainy day. Well worth a... More

Very enjoyable visit with friendly staff... Nice to see the renovation work as it such a lovely building with historical interest. Quite happy to pay the £10 entrance fee for works to be continued and I would visit again.

Starter of soup was quite nice, mains were a good size but the 'beef' burgers tasted like lamb burgers and couldn't be eaten. We told the staff and nothing was done about it regarding the bill. The Waitress was new so we can forgive this but she should have told the chef or manager immediately and someone at least offer... More

Amazing to see this jail, and to see the crimes people were put in jail for also the conditions they lived in.

Visited with friends for Sunday Lunch and was pleasantly surprised as this was our first visit. Quite unique the location offers much to see for an admission fee but the restaurant is easily accessible with parking near by, for passing trade. The food and service for lunch was to a good standard and good value. Well recommended if you are... More

Enjoyed Sunday lunch here today. Welcoming staff and surroundings. Good service. Tasty reasonably priced menu. The chef also kindly offered vegan options not on the menu. Mushroom risotto was delicious as was the stuffed peppers. Thank you

The staff were extremely friendly and the food was absolutely to die for! Tasted straight from a 5 star restaurant !! The restaurant is very underrated and in my opinion needs more recognition . Would recommend to everyone.

The service was very poor. From the time we were seated for our meal, 8.45pm till we finished 11pm! Long wait between courses. Main course wasn't quite as described on the menu. I would give the whole meal event only 5 out of 10! Also I ordered a pot of tea prior to the meal, but they forgot to supply... More
