Many Thanks for the kind feedback, I loved how you describe the visit as a "great wee family bit of fun". The painting process does take a week as everything is professionally fired with under-glaze paints for a ceramic finish like pottery at home. Obviously...More

I stopped for a coffee and scone on a wet and cold Christmas shopping mission...a delicious gingerbread latte with a big freshly baked scone, and a super warm welcome. Thanks for the extra shopping tips and friendly chat. Happy Christmas!

Came for my daughter's 3rd birthday and she absolutely loved it. The food is good and homemade and the hot chocolates are amazing. The staff were really informative and helpful as well as welcoming and cheery. Would recommend this to many people. Thank you!!

My friend and I went to Coffee and Clay with our two girls. Such a fab place, pottery painting was great and afterwards we had a delicious lunch in the cafe. Lovely food, very reasonably priced!

My son loves this place. There is good hearty food (and yummy cakes!) and there is also a great selection of items to paint. My only negative is the price.

We visited in October and attended the pottery evening. The food was lovely and it was a very laid back atmosphere where I could enjoy an evening with my friends. I’d definitely recommend this venue for a friend catch up with a difference.
