Friendly staff, free parking, kids loved it, loved the hands on stuff activities, all want to go again! Would recommend. We went with tesco clubcard vouchers- even more of a bonus.

Living quite local we decided to have a morning stroll to Denby pottery & call in the cafe for breakfast. Never again! 2 overpriced breakfast baps which was basically a dry cob with a very small amount of dry hard bacon. Tasteless! On entering the cafe we were pointed this way for drinks & that way for food. So by... More

DVD was informative but I think I may have already seen on a website. Tour guide informative and showed some of the processes involved. Then on to making our very... More

Discovered this place when we had time on our hands in the area. Really enjoyed our visit. The restaurant is clean with a decent selection of hot food and snacks. Staff very friendly. Good offers available at factory outlet shops. Cookery demos available throughout the day.. Parking is extensive and free. All in all a very pleasant day out.

Went on the factory tour using tesco tokens. Included in this was the tour, 4 plates which we painted and lunch for 4. The tour itself was a short history of the company and then a hands on explanation of how the pottery is made. In all very worthwhile. Recommend the cookery demo it was good even the kids liked...

This is the third time I have been here and was more disappointed than ever. EVERYTHING I liked or was nice was EXCLUDED from the highly publicised 2 for 1 offer. Things were too expensive and only junk was 2 for 1......won't be back.

Like any man I had been dragged to the establishment. After parking the car in a sensible car park I started to enjoy the facilities available and to be honest was quite impressed. I have been told that we are going back.

We always really enjoy visiting g denby. The restaurant is lovely and the staff are always welcoming and the cookery demos are very good. Defiantly worth visiting during school holidays. Our kids love the little beach they have set up and they even sell buckets and spades. They have fun things to do over Easter and Christmas as well.

We have been to the Pottery restaurant many times and always promised ourselves Homity Pie so our latest visit was the one when we had it...and very nice it was too. It was a cold,wet day and it was the perfect choice. We can thoroughly recommend the soups too - we often have those.
