I've visited many times and things haven't changed much. The pottery sales are the same as always but nothing stood out this year and I couldn't quite see the connection between pottery and shoe sales! However, the shoes on offer were very good. I also liked the clothing range.
I always visit the cafe as it's one of the better ones in Poole but I was sadly disappointed this year with the quality of the teacake they toasted for me. There was simply no taste to it at all. My coffee was fine, as was the price. As usual, the cafe was very clean although the furniture is showing signs of age. The lift to the first floor is a bit of a museum piece!
It's the sort of place that I'll always visit when I'm in the area and I'll time my visit to avoid the inevitable coach parties that always seem to call in.
