“First Visit”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Discovered this place when we had time on our hands in the area. Really enjoyed our visit. The restaurant is clean with a decent selection of hot food and snacks. Staff very friendly. Good offers available at factory outlet shops. Cookery demos available throughout the day.. Parking is extensive and free. All in all a very pleasant day out.

“Interesting and good value”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Went on the factory tour using tesco tokens. Included in this was the tour, 4 plates which we painted and lunch for 4. The tour itself was a short history of the company and then a hands on explanation of how the pottery is made. In all very worthwhile. Recommend the cookery demo it was good even the kids liked it. The shops are packed with lots of Denby so bring your cards.

“Buy 1 get 1 free is a CON”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

This is the third time I have been here and was more disappointed than ever. EVERYTHING I liked or was nice was EXCLUDED from the highly publicised 2 for 1 offer. Things were too expensive and only junk was 2 for 1......won't be back.

“A pleasant visit”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Like any man I had been dragged to the establishment. After parking the car in a sensible car park I started to enjoy the facilities available and to be honest was quite impressed. I have been told that we are going back.

“good day out”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We always really enjoy visiting g denby. The restaurant is lovely and the staff are always welcoming and the cookery demos are very good. Defiantly worth visiting during school holidays. Our kids love the little beach they have set up and they even sell buckets and spades. They have fun things to do over Easter and Christmas as well.
