  • The coffee needs a rethink. It's not strong enough and I'd prefer a larger amount. It's almost as if whoever bought and set up the espresso machine doesn't like coffee. Great selection of cakes!
  • A wonderful place to visit and see the birds. The new visitor centre has a lovely cafe, shop, and facilities providing information about the area. The staff there are super friendly and helpful. I would visit frequently if I lived locally.
