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.
Awards and Reviews:
We went for a coffee and stayed for ages! The poppies are stunning and, having been before, the gardens will continue to impress all summer. Beautifully displayed food on offer and polite staff made our visit that little bit more enjoyable. The wide range of products on sale makes it a lovely place to browse.
The cafe staff are the nicest people! They were really nice to my little boy, even though he was being a terror!
Aston Pottery is such a beautiful and charming place. Very pretty and relaxing and the restaurant serves great homemade food. I love this place.
What a fabulous floral delight walking through the garden this place is. So pleasantly surprised at such a display of wonderful flora. I agree totally with everyone's comments on the restaurant and gift shop though the excellent and rather unique Pottery on sale was a little out of my price range, which was a shame.
On our doorstep and have never paid you a visit - lunch was divine & bought a super liberty design butter dish, we will be back & soon.
A very nice place to go to for a light lunch or cup of tea and slice of cake. Lovely pottery on sale too.
This is a great place to enjoy wonderful food and drink great relaxing atmosphere where the staff are so friendly and helpful good place to meet friends for lunch or afternoon tea and cake thank you Aston pottery.
This is a wonderful place to visit. Exquisite displays of gifts for every taste, not to mention the most delightful pottery designs! Always something new to see and please the eye. The restaurant too, offers a most pleasing ambience and excellent choice of food. Outside, now in September, there is a virtual 'tsunami' of colour - especially the Dahlias, every variety, shape and colour imaginable. Who needs the Chelsea Flower Show?! My friends and I Never tire of coming to Aston Potteries.
Excellent! Very nice browsing around the shop with loads if interesting things popping up. We also had lovely cakes at their cafe. And their garden is something! Well worth a visit!
Lovely place, nice handmade pottery, Jerry, clothes toys, very nice restaurant with large slices of good cake and cooked food always looks tempting.
