We went yestarday,the staff were very helpful from the min we walked in the door,the kids were asked to choose what they wanted to paint (all clearly priced) after they made there choice they were kitted out with long sleeve aprons.The woman then explained what to do and left them to it,when finished the pottery was put in the oven for half an hour,time passed quickly as they played outside on the slide and see-saw.The items were then packed into boxes. Lovely staff and there are lots of choice of items to paint from piggy banks to butterflys, also you can get baby's foot and hand prints done a lovely keep sake.Couple of hours well spent.

I have taken my son here at least once a year since he was tiny, sometimes more often, and he is now 6 and has enjoyed it every time! The pots are great keepsakes and there is a wide variety to choose from. I usually end up painting one too, not just to keep my son company but because I enjoy doing it too! Good value for money and great service from friendly staff.
Play area outside for kids to play while they wait on their pots baking and a nice cafe for the adults to enjoy a nice tea or coffee while they wait too.

We will definitely continue to visit!

This place is good fun - you can choose to make pottery or do some 'spin art'. The items are competitively priced and the cafe is attractive and welcoming. There is also a small slide and climbing activity area in the back garden for while you are waiting for your items to dry. Ample parking, artwork and collectables for sale as well.

Small, quiet pottery with a relaxed, family feel. Spend as long as you like painting your pottery which is actually much more fun than you'd expect. We went as a couple and really enjoyed ourselves though, no doubt, it is aimed more at children!

Food's good, though not cheap. Would recommend hot chocolate and homemade scones.

Nice little cafe with items for sale and pots for you to choose to paint. Very friendly welcome, shown what to do and lots of paints, good choices of colours etc, My 2 eldest children (4 and 6) both painted bowls, £8 each. Not badly priced at all, as I have been to similar places and they charge this for the pots, then another £5 to bake it. This price included both. Nice little play area out the back, so the kids could play whilst they waited the half an hour it takes for the pots to bake.
The kids really enjoyed this and they are very proud of their bowls!!!
