Check availability for Potters Barn (opens in a new window)

Painted deer, created at Potters Barn.

Potters Barn is situated in the heart of the Roman village of Ribchester, opposite a large childrens park.  Set in a beautiful barn with a secluded garden and an open fire.  It is a friendly, comfortable space for everyone.

There are many walks and cycle paths running through the Ribble Valley and this is why Potters Barn is such a good fuel stop for many on their excursions.  As a pottery painting café, you can come and paint pottery any day of the week and if you are thinking of organising an event or party this can be hosted for you. 

​​​​​​Potters Barn is a great attraction while on holiday or simply getting together with friends and family.  Painting pottery is a relaxing, fun and creative activity to do over lunch or coffee and cake. 

Pottery selections change seasonally and there is so much choice, the hardest part is picking a pot.  Stencils and sponges are available and a great colour pallet to select from.  

Throughout the year painting and prosecco nights are hosted, so look out for those on the events page.

Throughout the last 10 years hen dos, baby showers, young farmers and girl guides have been hosted,  just to name a few groups and ideas.  If you are part of a group or society and want to do a team building activity look no further.  

Open seven days a week with a large room upstairs to cater for private parties.
