Honestly, it was literally like just walking around a scruffy farm and scarp yard (piles of old furniture, old wood, old fridges, even manky boxings bags lying around!), trying to find a few pound shop halloween decorations, using a map that only someone who has no orienteering skills could have made. No sign posts and a few dead ends (others were just as confused as us and so wasnt just me being crap) there was no kind of flow to it at all. I didnt even know where the tea room and shop was, wad much smallet than expected. When we went in we asked if we could have a kids menu and what was on for the kids for halloween and he said we had to ask at the desk and would bring us a menu. Then forgot about us. So we asked for another menu from someone else and she got it for us.
Took so long for someone to take our order my husband asked if we could order at the till, they said no, and were too busy to apparently tell us about the halloween treasure hunt too. we had someone take half our order and then walk off and be in a huff when we asked to order the kids at the same time.
The food was pretty mediocre (kids shared a plate of chicken goujons and chips, no side veg offered and husband had ham, egg and chips). Mine was terrible and tasteless (a veggie pie which wad just chunks of potato in pastry). The only decent staff member was a blonde girl who actually was decent and polite.
But overall a pretty expensive and stressful time was had. Not to mention the huge amount of cars and motorbikes coming from all directions and around corners and the boggy areas around the edges of the lakes, so wasn't exactly somewhere I would want to let the kids run free.
The room its self is pretty small and crowded, claustrophobic feeling. Wasn't even offered a high chair for my youngest who sat on my lap. There wouldn't have been space anyway!
Just a bit of a let down as been meaning to go for ages and heard it was a great family place. Our expections were too high!
