Went to China Blue with the hope of seeing some good Devon pottery. What a disappointment . The store was full of Christmas goods and one stand of awful pottery. OK it is Christmastime so we decide to go for a coffee and cake only to find a dog in the cafe being fed scraps from the table by the... More

My family were invited to a children's Birthday Party, which of course included all the fun of creating ceramic potteries and enjoying lovely coffees and homemade food in the cafe. Somewhat unique and an Aladdin's cave offering festive fun and a buzz around the blaze, which suggested this business is a goldmine. I would recommend a visit anytime to feel... More

Visited with friends who were holidaying with us. They bought several gifts to take home and have since rang to ask if we could get them other items they'd seen. When we visit them shortly our car boot will be full! We enjoyed browsing as there are so many lovely things to buy, we were spoiled for choice! We also... More

This is a very easy cafe to park, meet up with friends etc. The only thing that let's this place down is the waiting to be served.

If you want to pick up a gift and are looking for something a little bit different pop into China Blue. Lots of choice and their gift vouchers can be used for items or for the ceramic studio where you can paint your own (any age will love this even Granny!) There is always time for a cup of tea...

Came to Devon for our Anniversary and decided to do something different. We called here for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by the vast amount of choice we had to choose from all the pots to paint. Expecting it to be full of children it was nice to see adults enjoying the painting experience as well. The tables... More

Been here many times (especially good pre Christmas) always find a few goodies to buy, and also picked up a few pressies to put away. Plenty of choice for lunch at a decent price. Also, parking is never a problem.

Popped in late after a day out for tea and for a bit of shopping. Full of interesting items. Contrary to previous reviews we found the staff helpful and attentive. Café area good with the choice of sitting outside. Good for garden ornaments and for interesting household items.
