Paint Your Own Pottery Café



The Clay Studio Café

The Clay Studio has a range of quality food and beverages for you to enjoy while painting or you can just come into The Clay Studio for something to eat and drink. You do not have to paint to enjoy what we have to offer. We provide newspapers and comfortable chairs for you to relax. As you can expect with The Clay Studio, the finished pottery and art on display ensures a pleasant and stimulating environment. We also serve food and drink when The Clay Studio is open late at night. We are also licensed so you can also enjoy wines, beers and ciders.

If you are in a rush, enjoy a quality take-away tea or coffee with a freshly-made sandwich or cake.

We change our menu on a regular basis to offer new tastes and to take advantage of some of the best local food that is available. We are fortunate to be in an area where there are wonderful, locally-produced foods and we feature these in our menu options. Try local beers and cider, locally-baked cakes or Purbeck dairy ice cream for example.

Many visitors have praised our coffee. We also have a range of Twining teas and Van Houten hot chocolate. Soft drinks include a broad range of Coca-Cola products, both carbonated and non-carbonated as well as delicious Shmoo milk shakes. Our drinks menu includes wines, locally-brewed beers as well as Purbeck cider.

Collect Coffee Points when enjoying a tea, coffee or hot chocolate. After six hot drinks your next one is free.

We love to support local companies. You can find Jimmy's Iced Coffee and New Forest Spring Water. Find them in the chiller.
