Great place to go when the rain came down. Staff lovely and welcoming. Paint a variety of pottery to take away on the day. Milkshakes in more flavours than you can imagine! Highly recommended. Cost £50.00 for family of 4 with drinks.

Lovely little shop. Great for a dull rainy afternoon. Typical cafe food done nicely. Milkshakes are delish. Service from the ladies is most attentive. Lovely few hours spent here.

Hi we have a seating fee of £4 for whom ever is painting, this covers the cost of paint, glaze and kilning and our items that you can paint start at £3. We try to cater for every budget. I hope this helps.
