We were on a canal boat holiday as passed this centre. When we checked the website on our phone it said it would be open. We went along for 10:00 when it said it opened only to be told by the lady on reception that the museum was closed that day. We said the website said it was open and she replied that if you paged to the bottom it said that it wasn't. It is a very poor website that means key information is at the bottom of the page. We did visit the factory shop and the outlet shop and made purchases. We could have got a free coffee in the tearoom but we only realised that when we looked at the receipt later in the day. If only the shop assistant had said something about it !

You can literally spend the whole day here, museum is free and plenty in there to keep you interested, so clean it's unbelievable. Nice outlet centre, and shop. We had a go on the potters wheel ,( great fun ), All set up for wonderful afternoon teas too.

If you have any interest in ceramics or history, this is one of the key places to visit, a temple to design. Friendly staff, lots to see, the colour a plate and hands-on pot throwing are worth doing. During the current covid rules, they have implemented things well, and as it is spacious, it all felt very safe. (Barlaston is still Tier 1, I think, unlike Stoke City.) Not so much for younger children, they'd be better off at Gladstone or Middleport. But otherwise, now is a good time to visit while the foreign tourists are non-existent.

Our recent visit to the dining hall was a great disappointment. Having visited many similar establishments locally and within a 10 mile radius their Covid-19 procedures are totally out of step with their competitors. The staff are unhelpful, rude and bordering on bullying. If you do get past their registration process the wait to be served is long and if like us you prefer to sit out it’s cold. Not a place we will use again as there are lots of cafes close by with friendly and helpful staff.

Are you the creative type ? history buff? love a fun filled day out? Well if you are any of these, you will love this experience day. You get a museum entry, a factory tour, morning tea and biscuits, afternoon tea, throw a pot and design a plate. £49.99 each person, great value!! I booked this as an idea for my friend's birthday but it was postponed until yesterday due to C-19. Everything was operational other than the factory tour. However on a arrival you are given a life time membership card for free and this means you can return anytime and can get the factory tour and entry into the museum as part of the perks and 20% of the shop gifts. The day was amazing and the only thing that was not perfect was the sandwiches in the afternoon tea, bit too old and dry for my liking. The breakfast morning tea and freshly baked shortbread mini rounds hit the spot after an early start from Essex. So great start to our day. There was a whole variety of teas to choose from. I also asked for hot chocolate instead and that was fine. We then threw our pot, great teacher, just the three of us and we got three chances to make something half decent. They also send you one of your pieces if it survives the baking process. No extra charge. We then had afternoon tea. As I said, and sandwiches were not freshly made. Then a bit of time to look round the gorgeous shop and factory outlet shop. Then designing a plate or mug, again this is put on an actual plate or mug and sent to you, no extra charge. Then time for a muse in the museum before buying a gift and jumping in a taxi. The grounds are stunning but what made the day was the pottery and the staff. The staff are friendly and really welcome you. Now if the sandwiches were fresh, this day would have been exceptional!!!! They also have lots of events going on, Christmas events looks amazing.
