Loaf Pottery To Shut During Lockdown

We have come to the difficult decision to close our café and pottery in Crawfordsburn during the current phase of lockdown. This will include takeaways.

This was not what we envisaged the beginning of 2021 would look like, but it is a step that we have deemed necessary.

In better news, we will be replenishing our stock of hand-thrown pottery after the overwhelming support that we received during the run up to Christmas – demand was so high that sales were up 300% on the 2019 holiday period!

Our gifts with purpose will remain available for birthdays, special occasions or home decorating through our online shop. We will also be offering our range of ready-to-eat meals from our café on the Grosvenor Road, and they can be collected at this location or delivered to customers in the Greater Belfast and North Down areas.

By the time spring has sprung, we hope to be in a position to welcome you back to our little white cottage, but this could happen sooner or later than anticipated. We will, of course, keep you updated on our plans as soon as we know them.

Finally, we wish you, your family and your friends a Happy New Year of safety and health. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
