    Amazing experience
    We decided to give the paint box a try when on holiday for a few days. The staff were amazing. So friendly and helpful and the children loved them. They had so much fun and as we weren't staying long enough to get them glazed, we were offered alternative paints so we could take away the items the same day. Would definitely recommend and will be returning next year when we return for our annual Cleethorpes trip.
    Katie, thank you so much for this! The children were amazing and it was our absolute pleasure. I hope you had a great stay and we can’t wait to see you again next year xxx

    Amazing.
    The paint box is the most welcoming place I've ever been to. I first went with my first little girl 4 years ago, as a baby for baby prints on anything Rach and her team offered. She gave me advise on motherhood and offered support on things I asked! Not just a pottery painting experience. I place I felt I needed while on maternity leave. I've continued to go here as I've had my second child and both love to paint. Your always welcome, Rach always has time to chat and smile and as a mother some days I don't speak to many people so it's a lovely experience to have somebody to listen when you just want to chat! There is a great variety of pots to choose from and my girls absolutely LOVED the gabby doll house event Rach put on. Thanks for being there and being a huge part of people's lives when I don't think even Rach realises how much people need her and her shop! Please visit. You will not regret it.
    What beautiful words Alice. Thank you so much, it’s a pleasure to be part of your memory making and my door is always open. This view has mad me cry a little bit 😘

    Day Brightener
    A wonderful little gem of a shop that offers you the opportunity to create, chat and enjoy a cuppa. Both my girls adored our most recent visit, where they painted their own little master pieces to cherish for ever. I collected them today and they are so happy with the finished results to add to their collection. Rach greeted us with a smile and her enthusiasm and sense of joy was a real day brightener. My Girls and I would highly recommend a visit xo
    Ruth thank you so much, this review has brightened my day ❤️

    Lovely morning spent at the Paint Box
    Lovely morning spent at the Paint Box. Rachel created a lovely keepsake of my babies footprints/handprints into a design special to us. Very friendly environment, my two year old had a lovely time. Would definitely return.

    Friendly atmosphere
    We've been a fair few times to The Paintbox and each time it doesn't disappoint. There's always a friendly and welcoming and inclusive atmosphere from Rachel and her lovely team! We held our daughters birthday party there last year, and this birthday, she wanted to go again! Rachel remembered our daughter and her friend from last year which was lovely 😊 there is a great choice of things to paint too, that's the hard thing, choosing which item to paint! Well worth booking a table as it does get busy, but walk ins are always welcome. We highly recommend The Paintbox!
    Thank you so much for this be review!! Hope to see you again soon xxxx

    Lovely friendly place with a calm atmosphere. My 9 year old daughter loved painting her mug and can not wait to go back to design a plate and bowl for a full set!! We’re looking forward to seeing the final product later today.

Amazing service and support from an equally amazing team.
Lots of advice and support for us when collecting a take away pack for our 6 year old grandchild who we had with us for a week.
Just perfect in every way and nothing is too much trouble
Well done Paintbox - we will be back

My daughter and I visited the Paint Box after my daughter had visited a couple of other establishments that do similar activities in Manchester and Leeds. It is a very friendly place with a lovely atmosphere. While we were there, the place was busy with young children painting their own pottery; young families creating handprints on pottery and adults enjoying creating their own works of art.
When we arrived, we were greeted and shown the plate of colours which we could choose from and shown the selection of plates, pots, teapots etc which we could choose from. We were then left to our own devices for a therapeutic painting session. At the end we paid for what we had painted (prices were on the individual pieces and from what I could see, ranged from about £10 up to about £20). I received a text to say that they were ready about a week later.
I was very pleased with the visit and enjoyed the activity-very relaxing.
I would recommend doing a little research before hand so you know roughly what you want to produce as you are limited to 1hour45mins for a session.
