We had arranged a visit for about 60 people including about 30 French. We were split into three groups to do the craft visit which is on Fridays. Each group had a demonstration on hand painting a plate, throwing a tea pot a short talks about the clay and glazing. Then each group had the opportunity to make a small frog from a mold. We also had the chance to hand paint an item of pottery although to have it fired cost more. The guides were great and very knowledgeable. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and were able to buy things in the shop afterwards. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.

We visited 2nd June 2018 and spent a fortune saving money by purchasing sub standard goods anyway a great afternoon buying pans, mugs and cake stands. Polished off with a visit to the lovely cafe / restaurant and had a mix of hot food quiche and panini between 5 of us. Lovely staff and food we will be back in September

Well worth a visit. Very nice cafe/restaurant as well as cut price Denbyware and a small range of gift and food shops.

This is not a 'farm shop' in the true sense. A good range of nice looking products and I'm sure very tasty, but a lot of the meat is imported - you have to look closely at the label or ask. Some labels with the very English 'Oak Tree Ferms' headline giving the impression it is English. Disappointing that this business is not supporting local producers as farm shops ought to, in my view.
