Attraction Information

Paintpotts is the place to go when you and your little ones need to unleash some creativity. Choose from a fantastic and ever-changing range of pottery and bisque to paint, sit down, dip your brush into the paint and go!
Charging no studio fees, you only pay for the pottery you paint and the tasty snacks and drinks Paintpotts also provide! With an award-winning BBQ chef on staff, they provide delicious meat, cooked low and slow for 11 hours for a better taste and a tender texture. Have it on a trademark Paintpotts panini or go for a cake made by local company Bloomfield Bakes. And, if you need a drink to get the creative juices flowing, Paintpotts provide Italian Lavazza coffee, a range of tea, hot chocolate and cold drinks for the little ones.
If you're worried that your six-year-old will love it but your toddler will get bored easily, don't panic! Paintpotts have put together a fantastic play area that even has baby bouncers for really young kids, plus bumbos and highchairs if they want to try the children's menu.
