WE MAKE SEXY CERAMICS WITH OUR HANDS. THE MOST ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SMALL BATCH IN THE UK.

IN AN OLD INDUSTRIAL GARAGE WE PRESSURE WASHED 30 YEARS OF GRIME FROM THE WALLS & MADE A CAFE WITH OUR BARE HANDS; BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS.

ITS WORRYING HOW MUCH WE CARE. EVERY THING WE COOK STARTS LIFE AS A RAW INGREDIENT. WE BUILT THIS PLACE BY HAND FOR YOU. WE DO THIS FOR YOU, TO GIVE YOU SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU KNOW YOUR CARED ABOUT. EVERY DETAIL IS BY US. WE’RE ROUGH, WE ARE READY, WE LIKE HONESTY, AND WE DON’T EXPECT TO BE PERFECT. EVERYDAY WE OPEN AND WE TRY TO BE BETTER THAN THE DAY BEFORE.

The food was excellent and we sat right in front of the window into the pottery room which was brilliant. This is a gem of a place.

Excellent evening, nice atmosphere and very interesting surroundings. Food was top class in presentation and taste, only issue we had was the level of the music as it was too high like it is in most restaurant. But, staff did listen and i think they turned it down a bit.

Our food was 45 minutes late, only ordered pancakes and a salad, then we found a short black hair in the salad. Both of us are blonde. The staff were not very apologetic and didn’t seem to care.

We stayed locally with no idea where to grab some great food and coffee and stumbled upon this absolute gem. Beautiful space with adjacent pottery workshop selling restaurant grade ceramics (also available to buy) . Amazing menu with home baked cakes, Mediterranean/Middle Eastern classics and really friendly staff. Totally Covid safe too for anyone concerned. Will definitely recommend and will be back if we venture up north again.

One excellent breakfast. One not to our taste. Problem was general manager was working on the table next to us and made little attempt to keep 2m distance making breakfast an uncomfortable experience.

The chef/s here are so talented. The food is consistently delicious, fresh and seasonal. The fried cauliflower and heritage carrots are just insane. The rice pudding was off the charts. Nowhere else I’d rather spend my birthday afternoon. Thank you to your lovely staff too who were so friendly and attentive and made the whole horrible Covid situ bearable. I can’t wait to return soon for more grazing. Best food in toon! X

Fantastic place to eat outside. Only critisism could have better outdoor seating, as all seating was benches which can't be moved. Maybe heaters ? Otherwise great place. Will return xxx

Food is amazing presentation is very creative. The use of spices, oils just adds colour and flavours. Interesting to know that the chef worked at Claridge's with Gordon Ramsey, and a lovely guy to boot. Service was lovely and ambience is one of being chilled.out and relaxed. Pottery is also made at the back which you can purchase.If you have never been go Kiln is a lo
