The museum café offers a range of refreshments including freshly made sandwiches, baked potatoes and local delicacy – Staffordshire Oatcakes.

There is also a selection of homemade cakes available and a licensed bar serving wine, beer and spirits. Check our menu for the full range of food and drinks on offer.

We ask that seating be reserved for those making purchases in the Museum Café. If you have brought your own food please use the seating area in the School Space on the Lower Ground Floor. Please do not eat or drink in other areas of the museum, as this can attract insect pests which damage our collections and displays.

The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery Café serves traditional Afternoon Teas which must be booked in advance, all served on our vintage Burleigh ware. Price £9.50 per person or £8.00 for group bookings of 10 or more.

Whilst in the home of the ‘Potteries’ why not combine your visit with a behind-the scenes-tour of our Ceramics store followed by Afternoon Tea, Price £25 per person which includes 10% discount in Foyer shop, minimum 10 people, maximum 15.
