Nice welcome & lovely tea & scones on a cold rainy windy afternoon - however we bought 2 soup/ cereal bowls which have only lasted 4-5 months - now chipped, cracked & definitely not as good quality as other potteries. Pots are imported from China & just painted & glazed in Islay - wouldn't recommend buying any Have nice tea... More

Choices are limited on Islay when the weather's poor but if you have children to entertain for a couple of hours then this is a great choice.

We stayed at the B&B here during our stay on Islay (also to be recommended!) and popped in to look at the pottery and have a cuppa and cake after one of our cycle rides. Well worth a visit! Rosemary is a lovely host, very friendly, and the tea and home baking was just the ticket after our adventures. The... More

Stopped off for a late lunch of cheese & Branson pickle sandwiches plus a pot of tea. Served in China cups. Can sit inside or outside. Lovely ceramics on sale and option to paint your own.

We stopped here on recommendation from Nigel at the Caol Ila Distillery. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and made in the cutest cafe I've seen. While we ate our lunch the lovely hostess was helping a very young boy make a hand made plate to give to his Mum for her birthday. We enjoyed the meal and... More

Had a wonderful afternoon with Romemary painting pottery. We all loved it and could have sat there all day quite easily.

3rd year in row visiting here. Everything was thoroughly explained to us before the kids got painting. There's no pressure for them to hurry up and finish even when it's busy. Adults enjoyed first rate scones and cakes while kids happily painted. Would happily recommend a visit.
