We are a ceramic cafe where you can come and ;paint your own pottery & enjoy some delicious pancakes. Our Pancake menu includes both sweet and savoury options & we cater for wheat, milk, egg & nut allergies. Painting sessions generally last between 1–2 hours depending on the piece painted, our friendly staff will be on hand to guide & advise. Everyone is welcome either as individuals or as part of a group. There are no fixed painting times so you can just drop in and have a go anytime you like!
