Having known A E Housman's cycle of poems "A Shropshire Lad" since I was at school (in the 1960s) I had long wanted to visit the Clee Hills - and see those "blue remembered hills" for myself. I was not disappointed - a fantastic view.

I was delighted to come across this market which excelled in a wide range of innovative food. I particularly liked a stall with a range of savoury croissants (camonbert and cranberries)and a tempting range of bread; bread layered with lasagne sauces ,.bread with onion and tomato fillings....mushrooms etc. Another stall had an amazing range of vegetarian..corn and spring onion cakes,sausages made with halloumi cheese and sun-dried tomatoes...vegetable pancakes made from courgette, potatoes, onions, apples and cheese. Another stall had a tempting range of homemade cakes.

Reviewed By hannahjayx - Herefordshire, United Kingdom

Regularly go to monkey mania as my little one loves it, and I have to say I find it much better then ‘Quackers & Mickey Millers’ for one the cost of entry isn’t expensive as you only pay for the child, the food is amazing and I highly recommend the sandwiches ~ 10/10! Depending on the age of the child is how much they will do, as I have a 2 year old who loves the toddler area & the main slides, but I can see why people say there children get ‘bored’ as there are bigger places - BUT you won’t get it for the same price as here!
