This cafe is part of the Morris and James Pottery and is a favourite place for people who like to view and/or buy pottery and then be able to have nice refreshments before carrying on.

We called here on the way to the Sculptureum with some friends, the food was delicious and the service was friendly, while your there you can visit their show room and pottery work shop to see them actually making the pots, the pots are amazing.

Warm, cosy, rustic, garden cafe. Lovely place to catch up with friends over coffee. We tried their coffee, carrot and chocolate cakes. Coffee is great. The cakes are ok/average.
