Good pottery, delicious homemade cakes and scones but let down by poor quality weak coffee. Ordered a latte but was served with an Americano with a dash of milk and told that was a latte.

Really lovely pottery shop. Shocked at the prices they were so reasonable. Beautiful colours. There is also a cafe there didn't eat so can't give my opinion. But I was well impressed with the place
