About
Award winning, quirky paint your own pottery cafe filled with plenty of creative activities for adults and children. A good selection of pottery items to choose from before painting it how you like, maybe a hand and footprint of your baby/child, decopatch anything from photo frames to piggy banks. Indulge yourself with delicious home made cake and artisan teas and barista coffees. We have two studio rooms, one on the first floor and the party room on the second floor, so plenty of seating for everyone. So whether you just want to pop in for a coffee, meet friends for tea and cake or bring the family in for some craft activities we have room for you all and you are all welcome at Busy Brush Cafe. We even have free wifi so if you're planning on a 'work from home day' and want to escape home, we have become the 'second home' for a number of Wallingford locals. We look forward to your visit.

A lovely relaxing environment
Nov 2021
Our first visit to the Busy Brush Cafe today and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. They made us feel very comfortable. The shop was smaller than I had imagined so I can understand why they recommend booking ahead. There was lots of pottery to choose from and a good range of colours and equipment to use.
Once you have completed your piece you leave it with the shop for 7-10 days and come back to collect it once it has been put in the kiln.
I am very much looking forward to coming back to collect our pieces but to also do some more creating and eat some more yummy cake!
Thank you.

Delightful visit
Aug 2020
We called in for a tea and cake on a wet afternoon. What a delightful place. Lovely pot of real tea and yummy cakes beautifully served with china teapot, cups and plates. A family were painting mugs and clearly enjoying themselves, unfortunately as we were only passing through we didn’t have time to join them. It’s a tiny place on 3 floors and they might do better to make it clear outside that there is plenty of seating, and they don’t do only takeaways.

Fabulous creative time, the best iced coffee
Aug 2020
My daughter and I had the best socially distanced, safe, creative morning here. We loved it so much that we went back the following week. The kindest staff, the most fun creativity, delicious cakes and the best iced-coffee that I have tasted all summer. Thank you Busy Brush for a gorgeous moment.

Friendly, fun and quirky destination
Sep 2019 • Friends
I am a carer and took my client who has dementia and some mobility challenges. We were offered the only downstairs table (which is usually used as a work table by the staff but was generously cleared for our use)as the spiral staircase would have been too much for her. Lots of fun options for painting and decoupage - a great way to spend a morning. The coffee was superb and the cake selection looked delicioua. Can highly recommend for the coffee alone

Thank you for the review, we’re pleased we were able to help you and your client with some crafting by using the table downstairs. We are looking at re-designing the downstairs to accommodate more tables/people as we completely understand the spiral staircase isn’t for all. We are always happy to help where we can. Really pleased you enjoyed the coffee. We hope to see you again. Many thanks

Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon!
Aug 2019
My son and I spent a delightful 2 hours here together, the pottery painting experience was just great, we created our own little masterpiece with everything we needed to hand and lots of help and advice available too. The staff were fabulous and only too happy to help, even explaining the firing process to my son who was intrigued. I should add that the iced coffee was delicious too. This place is a real gem, whether you want to craft or just visit for coffee/tea!

An excellent pot of tea
Apr 2019 • Couples
Stumbled on the Busy Brush Cafe when visiting Wallingford and in need of an afternoon cuppa. A decent pot of real tea and a couple of home made cakes hit the spot. We didn't take advantage of the 'crafty' activities that the Cafe offers for adults and children. They look like lots of fun.

Mother’s Day Out: Success!
Mar 2019 • Family
What a great little place! Nice setting, great coffee and helpful staff. East to follow directions meant that even my two-year-old could produce a pretty epic multicoloured snail. Great fun.

Great atmosphere & quirky little café
Nov 2018 • Friends
What a fun experience! I took one of my close friends here for a birthday treat to her, and didn’t really know what to expect price wise. The prices of each item made sense, so was happy to pay this ☺️ Being a small business owner myself, it was so nice to see the both owners when you walked into the café and both lovely ladies! You’re doing such a great job with this café and will definitely come again soon! Once my little girl is old enough, I’ll be bringing her here ☺️ We loved it so much, we were the last to leave haha! Thank you for an afternoon of fun!

Long travel for excellent experience
Oct 2018 • Family
Granted my mum lives in Wallingford when we come and visit but when we do we will always go in for a few ours to have a cuppa and do some art work . Our daughter loves it when she can do art work with granny . The staff is always friendly and yes sometimes there is a till issue but at the end it’s not a massive chain but a little place making kids and adults alike happy .
We always go when we can
And we travel down from Scotland for two days . I’d recommend it to anyone
