Welcome to Pots & Pancakes

An award winning Paint your own Pottery Cafe in North Shields, near Newcastle.

.... but we are implementing extra safety measures to keep both our staff and customers safe.  
We are currently operating reduced opening hours - Saturday only and have halved the seating to maintain social distancing measures.  Tables are available by appointment only.  You can book a table online using the BOOK link above, or call to book your table.  
When attending you will be asked to stagger arrivals and departures, hot and cold drinks will be available as a table service but the self service pancake bar is suspended until restrictions are lifted.  We request that customers comply with current government guidelines and wear a face mask when not drinking and you will be asked to leave your details in the event that you need to be contacted by the track and trace system.  
There are currently no baby changing facilities and we are only accepting card payments for the time being.
If you still want to paint during this time we are happy to offer takeaway painting sets these can either be collected or sent out via post please call the 
Craft Yourself Silly office to order on 0191 2960398.
