My good friend Kate came to visit the other day, although we met in japan we are both from the same city back in the UK, it is always good to get together and crack jokes about oatcakes and the Potteries centre which no one else here 'gets'.
Anyway, hubby had noticed an ad in the free paper for a cafe nearby and asked if I had been, I didn't even know it existed so Kate, Ebi-kun and I went to check it out. I t is called Puu and set in a bamboo wood, it looks like they have converted the bottom of their house into the cafe gallery. Going inside was like going into a grannies house, full of nick-nacks, some of which were for sale. They didn't have a food menu as such, they have one dish available a day and you have to book in advance, so we just had drinks. The staff were lovely, very chatty. The best bit though is that they have a pottery studio attached to the house and they do pottery courses, now considering this place is 5 mins by bike from my house I am VERY interested in doing this.
There were lots of interesting pieces in the garden, it was a rainy day so the pictures are not so good.But we will be going back, the garden was lovely too, shame the weather wouldn't let us sit out and enjoy it.
