  • review rating 5  What a lovely time my daughter and I had this afternoon. If we said once 'isn't that lovely" "oh! Love that" " now that is beautiful", must have said it dozens of times. The pottery is beautiful, so many other things I haven't seen before. So much to see. The cafe is a delight, spotless, and food is great, all homemade. Huge selection. A must to visit

  • review rating 5  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 cafĂ©, 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

A large choice of delicious cakes and savoury lunches it was hard to make a choice! The waiting and serving staff were cheerful, helpful, quick and courteous. Lots of clear tables at all times. The gift shop is packed full of gorgeous goodies to buy..Thank you for a lovely visit I would love to return soon.

  • review rating 5  Wonderful Place near Oxford for pottery, superb food and drink. They started the gardens from scratch and they are becoming more beautiful each year. I have had the pottery now for more than 20 years and they still look like new. Very recommendable! Update August 2019 Went again with my friends. The gardens are a mass of colour an even bigger than last year. Food was good as usual and they sell their own calendar now.
