Welcome to Chessell Pottery Café

 

We are set in the heart of the beautiful West Wight on the Isle of 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 on the Isle of Wight 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!

We are pleased to say that Pottery Painting will be open from this Saturday, the 25th July.

We have inevitably had to make some changes. One of the main changes is that you will need to book a slot, rather than just turning up.

We will have 3 slots daily of 1 and 3/4 hours each , from 10am, 12 and 2pm. The 15 minutes between slots will give us enough time to clean and set up the tables ready for the next painters. We appreciate your help in keeping to the timings. We have several tables seating different amounts of people.

If you would like to book a slot, please give us a ring, 01983 531248, or message us.

Well we've survived our first week back after lock down and want to thank all of you who have come back to support us. There was much uncertainty, on our part, with reopening, and there has been a lot for us, our fantastic team and our amazing customers to get their heads around. Thank you everyone for sanitising your hands, for following one way systems, for queuing outside, for socially distancing but most of all, thank you for buying our coffees, cakes, breakfasts, lunches etc.👍🍰☕🙏❤️

Happy to say that although we can't offer in house painting, we are able to offer painting kits to take away!

Please have a read of our signs before you enter the cafe😊👍

You'll also notice that all our tables have a QR you can scan with your phone (please download a QR code reader to your phone). This means you are able to order and pay at your table if you would like, making it quicker, and hopefully reduce queuing! For those who don't wish to use this, we are also offering inside table service. Today will be the first day of trying the App ordering system, so please bear with us with any teething problems!!

Anyway, cakes are out and looking fabulous!!! See you soon 😊
