Welcome to Chessell Pottery Café


We are set in the heart of the beautiful West Wight, easily accessed from the many surrounding local footpaths and bike trails, making it the perfect stop off for a delicious breakfast, light lunch or Chessell Cream Tea.


About Us

Only a 10-minute drive from Newport or Freshwater, and right in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Chessell really is a hidden getaway where you can relax with stunning surroundings and great, tasty treats.

Our café is a mix of the old and the new, offering a beautiful, airy, versatile space with plenty of seating both inside and outside in our pretty, sheltered, courtyard garden. With bike racks and boot scrapers, and somewhere to water your dog, we are a perfect pit stop for cyclists and walkers.

Pottery Painting is also on offer, acrylic and glazed – a great family-friendly activity! We have a delightful array of bisque (i.e. pottery) to paint, something to appeal to all ages and price ranges.  If you are looking for an alternative Children’s Party, we have a standard package available but are happy to tweak to whatever you require.  We also have packages available for any other groups looking to visit – hens, stags, schools, scouting groups, W.I., baby showers etc. Give us a ring and we will be happy to have a chat!

And whilst you are with us, have a browse in our shop which offers local, Isle of Wight products – lots of quirky, unique gift ideas!
