We have been here every year for the past three years and have never failed to have a great and relaxing few hours. A great idea to spend some time in here on a rainy day, with great coffee and food and excellent service. And hopefully the quality of our pottery painting is improving!!

Apologies for the late review but it's taken me a while to get back online! Had a great time painting a few weeks in June sometime back but unfortunately we were sat near a table where some of the staff were sat painting, we had a few conversations with them and my daughter loved watching them paint getting ideas but...

We went here and had a fun time making items for family and close friends. After spending a lot of money and waiting a week to collect our things we noticed that some of the items had marks on them which had not been cleaned off before glazing. (even though we had been promised it all gets cleaned up) Also... More

A unique arrangement inside for refreshments and for the arty types to make their own designs on numerous types of pottery. Very busy on a Saturday and appears to be doing a roaring trade. If you are on holiday you need to visit early on as it takes a week for the objects to be fired and glazed.

Thank you for your kind comments, we're glad you enjoyed yourself with us. We can get very busy at the weekends and during school holidays and therefore we now advise customers to come early or book with us where they can. Whilst it normally takes a week for the pottery to be glazed, subject to space within our kilns, we... More

I came in here a few weeks ago with my elderly mother, she has trouble walking and the staff were very accommodating to her needs. All the staff were so friendly, officiant and on hand to give assistance when needed. Would definitely recommend.

This is the most relaxing place to go. Lovely drinks and cakes, but most of all a place to grow creatively. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, nothing is too much, many mum's and children go there and the staff go out of their way to make everything easy. Also a late Thursday evening is excellent for the likes... More

This is a great venue for family bonding for all ages. In fact it's perfect for older teens, students and a good activity for a mixed generation family group. Time stops as you each create a masterpiece and that's the reason we'll be back. Love how the refreshments are served in "in house" creations to inspire customers. Tea in a... More

Reading some of the reviews I am not surprised they are very mixed. On the one hand the venue is great, well laid out with a great range of ceramics to paint. You can buy coffee and cake which is well priced and I was really pleased with the products we created and took home a week later. The ONLY... More
