Only ten minutes away from our Derbyshire hotel is the delightful Denby Pottery Village. From shopping and cafes to factory tours and the Denby museum, this attraction has it all. Whether you’re travelling alone, with a partner or with kids, Denby Pottery Village caters for them all.
What to Do Whilst I’m There?
There truly is something for everyone in Denby Pottery Village, whether you’ve come for shopping, an experience or just a bite to eat. As one of the premier destinations for shopping across Derby, Denby Pottery Village houses a variety of independent shops. Here, you will find the Denby Factory Shop and Cookshop which has lots of special offers on tableware, glassware and more. You will also find independent garden shop The Garden Stall and wine store Laithwaite’s Wine.
If you’re here with your partner or family and you’re looking for more of an experience, Denby Pottery Village also offers much more. You can book craft experiences in the craft studio, try your hand at pottery throwing and even get a tour of the factory itself. The factory tour also includes an opportunity to explore the Denby Museum and paint your own piece of Denby and make the iconic Denby frog. You can even roll up your sleeves and give pottery throwing your best shot. Learning various techniques from Craft Potter Sean, this is a perfect experience either alone or with a friend.
Food and Drink
Whilst you’re doing your shopping or experience, you may want to take a break for a bite to eat. If that’s the case, Bourne’s Coffee Shop & Bistro is on hand to deliver seasonal dishes on the latest Denby tableware. Including salads, sandwiches and homemade cakes, there’s plenty to choose from for breakfast or lunch. Afternoon Tea is also available.
Once you are ready to leave, you can return back to the Lion Hotel for a nice hearty meal in our leading Derbyshire restaurant. Our gastropub is renowned in the local area for delivering a variety of delicious homemade cuisine, all served in a beautiful 18th century building with a friendly atmosphere. Our team will endeavour to give you the ultimate dining experience before you retire to one of our luxury rooms for the night.
