“Allen Gallery - specialist ceramics”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The Allen Gallery in Church Street, Alton, is a small treasure. It contains a wonderful specialist ceramics collection and a good point of reference for pottery and china. There is a delightful garden where you can eat your sandwiches and there are teas and cakes available.

“Lovely garden, too!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Good coffee and home-made cake, and a lovely small walled garden in which to enjoy it. What a lovely spot.

“Brilliant gem of a place.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

A surprisingly comprehensive collection of ceramic drinking vessels and teapots. Beautiful gardens for afternoon tea, or just to hide in if life is getting too much. The place is run by volunteers who have a passion for local history and have lots of fascinating stories to share. Definitely a place to keep coming back to.

“Deceptively large!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

By far the best collection of tea cups and saucers - great for a tea lover like me. The ceramics were stunning, can't believe what a huge collection they have here. The garden at the back and the tea shop are great for relaxing in.
