Stephen Pearce Pottery

The Stephen Pearce Pottery is emphatically vaut le détour for the handsome homewares they handcraft so pleasingly. Anyone with so much as a kitchenette in a holiday home should make a point of calling here as just one small purchase will give a lift to any home - and always remind you of an enriching visit to a place with a 250 year old tradition of handcrafted pottery.


Unlike many lesser potters, Stephen Pearce produces just two ranges of earthenware, both of which are stunningly simple and instantly recognisable - the Traditional range of terracotta pots is decorated with a creamy white glaze, and the Shanagarry black range is fused with white glaze.


They have a timeless appeal that works well with any style of décor - and the kitchen and tableware pieces provide the perfect background for beautifully simple food.


And this can be tested on site at their charmingly low key Tea Room, with its rustic tiles floor and traditional kitchen chairs set around sturdy wooden tables. Blackboard menus proclaim the wholesomely delicious treats of the day - along with a short wine list.


Good home baking is the tour de force of course, and the pared back style of the pottery sets off the simple goodness of the area’s great artisan foods with panache.

Opening Times: Showroom Mon-Fri 10-5, Sat 10-6, Sun & bank hols11.30-6. Tea Room Mon-Fri 11-3, Sat & Sun 11-4. abbreviations
