“The Morris and James "experience "”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great Fun .we arrived and were greeted with coffee and muffin and given a informative tour of the process - then "roll your sleeves up". We got to decorate a platter of our own , with help from the staff there. Either their design , or a unique creation of your own. After a lovely lunch , we jumped into gumboots , and " threw a pot" .
Lots of fun , and best of all , our platters and pots will be delivered to us in a few weeks time , after being fired.

“Great pots and cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

The pottery at Morris & James has a very distinctive style with bright glossy painted pots with NZ themes and icons. They are quite amazing. Outside the pottery you can have lunch in the courtyard cafe under the trees. Very pleasant setting.Great for a half day trip, it is 50 minutes from Auckland by car.

“Always a lovely atmosphere and the food is good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

We often call at this cafe/pottery. There is a wide selection of pottery, very distinct to Morris and James. Check out their seconds, there are always bargains.

The cafe has a small selection of wine and beer and a simple menu. Good for a quick lunch or a long slow afternoon.
