I took my friend to the Denby cafe for a change. - very dissappointed! only bagged leaves... More

Liked: cooking demonstration of kedgeree and ginger&rubarb pie. Have never mind kedgeree but will definitely do so after this trip. Our cooking demonstrator- Helen was very friendly and showed us how easy cooking can be with everyday ingredients. Liked: discounted prices off denby kitchen ware, bought some beautiful designs. Disliked: came on a bank Holiday Saturday and unfortunately the factory... More

Did the shops and tour: Enjoyed the tour as the process was well delivered and presented. The shops were predictable but clean and bright. Had a meal in the restaurant: Nice fresh and different at a fair price. I suggest Tour and Tea!!

We paid yet another visit to the Denby centre yesterday, and as with all of our other visits, it was a great experience. If you collect Denby tableware, as we do, then this place is a must. The seconds shop is the main attraction for us, where near-perfect crockery can be bought for a fraction of the cost of the... More

Even of you don't wish for the factory tour, you can spend a couple of hours in the shops. The Outlet shop is well worth a visit as the prices are a fraction of the price in the departmental stores. The emporium shop has several shops in one building, including kitchen, cards , and even a small deli. There is... More
