  • We stopped here for breakfast and were very pleased with the service and portion size. The food quality was excellent. The setting is very quaint with sparrows looking for the odd crumb. Very reasonably priced.
  • A wonderful place to visit. My 3 year old grandson was absolutely blown away by all the little houses and little people and animals etc. He was so excited, his little voice was getting higher and higher pitched! The staff are wonderfully friendly and welcoming. Its a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Top tip, if you want a trip on the Swanage Railway on the same day, you can get a combined ticket for both, which saves a couple of quid!
