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!

I visited with my two year old son on a quiet term time weekday. Staff member pleasant enough when explaining what to do although made no effort at all to speak to my son. This surprised me given that this place is geared towards kids and kids parties. Chose a pig to paint for around £15 which was fairly expensive... More

Really friendly and helpful staff who set us up with all the paints we could need along with a food menu from which I can highly recommend the pancakes (there are several varieties to choose from!). We did have fun getting messy and the pots look amazing. I... More

I took my 5 year old Son to Pots and Pancakes on the 22.10.16. All I can say is he and I had a great time. Thank you Kelsey, you were fantastic helping my Son create what I think is the best bowl in the world! We had our lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed that too.

Spent a lovely 3 hours here this morning with my daughter and her friend age 7 and 8, we all really enjoyed ourselves. Plenty of supplies, pancakes lovely, staff really pleasant. We didn't feel at all rushed despite it being half term. Looking forward to receiving our finished pots in the post :)
