Was a little disappointed with this especially as we were looking forward to the visit. Worth a look though.

An interesting shop which sells far more than pottery. Worth a browse in view of the variety of products on sale.

Most of my china in the kitchen is Purbeck pottery. So well made, lovely designs and lasts beyond the norm. I love the shop too with so many beautiful things on sale. You'll always find a gift for someone, or yourself of course!

This used to exclusively sell pottery but they’ve branched out a lot. The shop is full of ‘nice things’ but they do come at a price. Still it’s well worth a visit if you are on the quay.

Closing down 15th October, no more paint a pot, 50% SALE finishes this weekend! The outlet was a good place to find a gift, hopefully replaced with a more upmarket venue...

A varied experience. Some of the shop had some really lovely and interesting things whilst part of it was filled with tourist tat and clutter! I suppose it is trying to give appeal to everyone. A nice place to have a half hour of browsing.

We went to their store at Poole Quay on our return from Brownsea Island and found out that are closing down due to redevelopment of the site by the owners - hopefully they will reopen in new premises. They had an up to 70% sale...More

Not much pottery at all, it seems more of a gift shop for anything and everything at a slightly higher price than usual due to its location on the quay
