More chocolate stalls than anything else. Too many ques. Not enough activities. Really hard to get cheese or wine because of ques.

Waste of time and money. Blink and you miss the wine and queues for stalls were ridiculously long. Merchandise was hugely over priced,

There are not enough exibitors at this festival. It needs to be at least three times the size to make it worthwhile.

Great day out. I'd like to see a few more stalls next time.

The stalls were limited and the wine and cheese expensive. Not enough opportunity to buy a glass of beverage.

Overpriced and hardly any cheese and wine stalls. The chocolate festival was the main event

See above, it was a scandal. Misrepresented the nature of the event, with so few stalls featuring either wine or cheese. Seriously Morrisons puts on a better display. And that's the lowest bar I thought possible. Go back to Merchant School, Cheese and Wine Festival! I was ashamed to have brought three friends out for such a terrible event, and I can tell you they were none too pleased with me for recommending it. I would like a refund on the four tickets purchased please.

There was a very small number of stalls. The majority were chocolate and only a couple were cheese or wine! Far too many people were admitted relative to the space of the venue and the number of stalls. This meant that we could not even see the stalls as there were 3-4 people deep. As is normal in other food/wine events there are tasters available - there was practically none here. On the whole it was an awful experience - four of us went together and left within half an hour. It was extremely poor value for money and I would discourage anyone from attending in the future.

There was no mention that it was 3/4 chocolate show and no where to sit., Everyone was sitting on the floor like buskers buying bottles of wine to drink and hunks of cheese to break off by hand. I overhead someone say "a typical act by Groupon a bit of a con " but it was the show not where it was sold that was responsible. Only one place to buy food to eat was just irresponsible and the queue for that went around the hall.!

It was very poorly organised - I couldn't get to any of the stands. There wasn't enough staff - I came with money to spend and didn't buy anything
