Aston Pottery and Gardens
Our gift shop was originally built in 1998 and expanded in 2008. Now in 2016, also utilising our upper floor, it is an extraordinary showcase of the patterns and designs we have produced in our 25 year history. Combined into fabulous displays, our gift shop mixes pottery with a large selection of classic and contemporary gifts for people of all ages. We work on a small order basis with most of our giftware displayed once for a short time only. Our gift shop is adjoined by our award winning country café (voted best café in the Oxfordshire restaurant awards 2015 and 2016). Outside, they are surrounded by our gardens and our visitor parking area.
Our products are sourced from all around the world, to create themed displays matching our various pottery ranges. The gift shop has expanded and diversified through a comprehensive and beautiful range of ladies accessories and clothing. As Christmas approaches the whole gift shop takes on a magical appearance with beautiful displays which change each year. The large themed trees are filled with colourful baubles and decorations ranging from kingfisher and peacock blues to lush golds and pinks, not forgetting our traditional red tree. You may also see a log cabin, a nutcracker theatre, or a woodland and ice theme as you meander round the shop. Currently, our shop stock can only be purchased by visiting us; we are frequently getting in new products so there will always be something new to see when you visit.
Our shop in the heart of Oxfordshire is the only place where you can see the full Aston Pottery collection of shapes and patterns. Everything we sell is designed, manufactured and hand-decorated at our workshop and studio adjacent to our Gift Shop in Aston, Oxfordshire. With something to fit everybody’s taste, our wealth of ceramic designs cover classical illustrative takes on popular wildlife and floral imagery, contemporary interpretations of pattern design, and the silhouetted forms of our Rural Life range, not to mention a host of offerings for those of a younger age.
Please Note: We welcome dogs on leads in our gardens and outdoor seating area only.
Assistant dogs welcome throughout all indoor and outdoor areas.

Lots of lovely things to look at. So much choice, definitely need to go around and look first time, choose items on second walk around. Delicious food and drinks in the cafe.
I've been going to Aston Pottery since I was a little girl as it is just down the road from my Grandparents. It was my Grandparent's Diamond Wedding Anniversary on the 08.12. and I was unable to fly home from Austria to be with them on their special day. I contacted Helen at Aston Pottery who arranged afternoon tea for them and my Parents. I cannot thank Helen enough for all of her help and the staff in the café, my Grandparent's said it made their day. The table was beautifully laid with decorations and was perfect! Thank you very much! I can't wait to come and visit next Spring when I am next home... 🙂 x x
I visited today as part of a small home education group, we enjoyed walking around the gardens and loved the tour of the pottery workshop. I completely underestimated the process that each piece of pottery goes through and am so impressed with the energy and craftsmanship of the staff. The food in the cafe is lovely and it’s all just very well done from the decent amount of parking to the beautiful shop displays and the gorgeous outside spaces. Thank you �

Love coming here with my family. We enjoy a look round the shop and then a cake for a treat. The food is beautiful especially the cakes. Afternoon tea is also beautiful and brilliant value for money.
That's a first! - went for afternoon tea and they had run out of tea bags so had to produce one from my handbag!
A really enjoyable experience, lovely food, the service was excellent the staff made you feel relaxed and very welcome. Will be going back again. Xxx Thank you to my daughter and son in law Leanne and Andy x
Excellent cafe located within Aston pottery. Very good food with daily specials and good hospitality. Toilets on site and plenty of car parking. Well worth a visit when decked out for Christmas.
The potery here is amazing, and we have lots of it at home. The cafe and other services here are very nice to. A great place for a morning / afternoon trip for some down time.
Very beautiful gardens. Good quality plants on sale at reasonable prices. Restaurant serves good food. Not cheap but well presented. Gift shop very expensive for those on tight budgets. Would do well to offer some small items at reasonable prices by
Great place to walk around, loads of unusual items in the shop. The cafe is amazing, the cakes are huge and fantastic.
