It was a lovely way to get creative and escape from the everyday hustle of things. Definitely spent a lot longer than expected in there due to the sudden motivation to make something one of a kind. I would suggest going on a weekday when it's quiet so you can have the freedom to look around, get the paints you... More

Great fun, staff great, bring your own bottle meaning it can be good activity for friends. Pots slightly expensive and were sat a little close to the shelves (thought might knock over). Would definitely do again!

This place is so cool! Well worth a visit. I had so much fun painting here. The staff are amazingly friendly and the manager very helpful. We painted plates and a jug.

I have been twice to Art 4 Fun Its a fantastic place to visit with friends and family alike. The selection of ceramics is vast and always challanges the creativity of all. I would advise going for something smaller as the large figures are quite time consuming! Very friendly staff with refreshments (cans and drinks) at a reasonable price! Hours... More

I've been here twice (this year), both times with children (aged 8 and 10). We LOVE it! We go out of our way to visit when we're in London. Shane was there both times and he's really friendly, helpful and a wealth of information for design tips. On our last visit we were there for over 5hrs with a break... More

If you like painting, then you should definitely try this. We had a nice night - even thought it was a Friday there was no live music, which it was a shame as it would have been much better - but you are allowed to bring your own wine / beer! The only thing is that some things are a... More

I recently took my 3.5 year old to this cafe to make a Father's Day present for my husband. The cafe has 2 walls of floor to ceiling shelves of pottery with signs stating ' all breakages must be paid for' so needless to say just selecting an item can be a fraught experience with a toddler. While most items... More

Decided to do something a little bit different on a Saturday afternoon. Called ahead and luckily managed to reserve a table as they were almost full due to a few children's party's. I haven't visited a pottery cafe since I was young but today certainly didn't disappoint. I chose a large mug and the price for it was pretty reasonable,... More
