Still very good value, and the perfect place to ask your questions or just to see the designs. Go on, heft the weight and access any less-expensive 'seconds' - not that I'd know the difference. Go and revel in the old Pool,e.

I was expecting to see a variety of Purbeck pottery but in reality, there is a bit of all sorts here! More like market stalls.

Very nice shop with plenty to look at, some unusual pieces of pottery which were very nice but a tad too expensive. You can while away a good half an hour looking around picking up gifts to take home.

This used to exclusively sell pottery but they’ve branched out a lot. The shop is full of ‘nice tthings’ but they do come at a price. Still it’s well worth a visit if you are on the quay.
