Such an enjoyable experience for kids. Makes such a lovely change for kids to have a go on the potters wheel as well as painting a pot. Everyone there is so friendly and patient. The food is fantastic too!

Don't want to tell you how good it is as I don't want everyone to come in & spoil this lovely little place.

I have been to this cafe many times and it is relaxing and a total departure from the rest of Alfreton. It took me a while living in near the area before I stumbled upon this lovely place. The cafe has a bit of a holiday feel to it and you soon forget you are actually in Alfreton. It is... More

I was delighted to discover this hidden gem today. It's a bit hidden away but once inside this is a surprisingly spacious cafe with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and the opportunity to get creative with pottery and purchase a few gifts too. My friend and I had a hot drink each but the cakes looked fantastic and we will be... More
