We visited here using tickets obtained through Tesco Vouchers so it was quite a cheap day out. The factory tour was quite interesting and the guide called Karen was very pleasant and the lady doing the plate painting was very good.

The cookery demonstration was first class-very professionally presented -the chicken and sweet potato casserole was delicious as was the plum pie!

Love denby pottery and especially their monsoon range. Have some excellent shops also alongside the main buildings, Unfortunately lift out of order which makes access difficult for disabled individuals

We were in the area for a few days and spent a couple of hours here. A great place to visit especially with our dog. The Cafe was first class with lots of outside seating. The shop sold every conceivable kitchen utensil not just their own products. Certainly worth a visit

Plenty of denby seconds and new stock to choose from. Gifts, toys, kitchenware and baking products. The restaurant has some lovely food. Make sure you look carefully at the seconds to get the best buy.
