Probably the most relaxing lunch I've had in the last 5 years. This amazing little location is the sheer definition of Tranquility. A specialist supplier of Cretian urns and pots, this business is something very special. The cafe has a small selection of items but...More

Dropped in to see what’s like now under new ownership. Still lovely with some great stock and they’ve clearly put a lot of time & effort into the design and layout. Shame the cafe no longer offers the Mediterranean menu it used to have ,...More

Great service and lovely people. A little hidden gem and certainly worth a visit. Some amazingly beautiful pots set in a stunningly landscaped courtyard.

We were seeking refuge from the surprisingly expensive pots and stumbled into this lovely café. Good quality, well priced, friendly service.

Established in 1985, Pots and Pithoi was the first to introduce handmade Cretan terracotta pots to the UK and we have the largest selection in the country. Our renovated farm buildings, medieval barn, and Mediterranean-style courtyard provide the perfect setting for our pots and an enticing array of artisan wares for the home; ceramics, olive wood products, glass and original gifts. The Coffee Pot Cafe is in the old dairy and outdoor seating is also available in our beautifully renovated courtyard. We serve modern interpretations of Cretan cuisine and hearty soups, sandwiches and paninis. The Menu is inspired by our visits to our Cretan potters and their great hospitality. Enjoy savoury pies made with crumbly pastry, fresh soups and seasonal salads - with a slice of freshly-baked cakes and a cappuccino for dessert. Lunch is served from 12:00-2:00 with coffee and cake available until 4:00. We welcome large groups but hope you’ll let us know you’re coming. Phone us to reserve a table.
