Overview

Aston Pottery is a multi-award winning pottery, gift shop, cafe and gardens in the quiet Cotswold village of Aston, Oxfordshire. Offering something for visitors all year-round, we are a fabulous place for all ages to spend an afternoon. If you are interested in learning about the craft of pottery making we offer group tours and demonstrations throughout most of the year, or for those who want to get more hands-on you can decorate you own pottery every Saturday in our shop (due to popularity all activities must be booked in advance). Our Gardens offer a spectacular array of plants, flowers, bees and butterflies from mid-April through to September and lunch in our cafe is not to be missed. For those unable to visit us, you can learn more and browse some of our most popular pottery designs through our website. We design, manufacture and hand-decorate all our pottery in our on site workshop using a unique combination of craft and industrial techniques.

Excellent lunch, good variety of food and good service. The Aston pottery is very nice for special gifts as rather expensive. I have several mugs that has been given to me and my husband by my family for Christmas and birthdays.

A great lunch break. Excellent coriander and carrot soup accompanied by freshly baked soda bread. The salads were freshly made and imaginatively put together. Splendid all round again and value for money. Thanks! 🙂

Not in the shop and cafe, however there is seating outside where I am sure a dog would be acceptable to sit with you if you were having food and drink from the cafe.
