    The museum was awesome went to lecture of Paignton picture house which was really good so interesting and would come again to other lectures . However went for lunch in the cafe not good £6.50 for a tuna pasta bake when it arrived was over cooked so hard you couldn’t chew it. When I complained the guy said we really have problems with this dish think we leave in oven to long will try to do it differently in future. Really no apology no offer of money back you can’t run a business that way if you get a complaint reimburse or at least offer something else . Will not be eating there again .
