What's on at Mad  Hatters
What's On...

Coffee.   Cake.   Create.

Mad Hatters Pottery Cafes bring you the therapeutic fun of pottery painting while enjoying a tea party atmosphere, from our two Berkshire based studios in Tilehurst, and Arborfield.


Everyone is welcome - even dogs and anyone can get involved in pottery painting.

We're open 7-days a week for some fun and relaxation, while our fully trained baristas are ready to serve freshly ground coffee made from ethically sourced beans, speciality teas, incredible Fairtrade hot chocolate and our locally handmade cake. 

Whether you're looking for a fun activity for the kids (although the grown-ups love it too), wish to host a party or simply want to make a memory, our friendly staff are always on hand to help you create something wonderful!

"We love it here. It’s a lovely family friendly place with lovely staff and a great atmosphere. They have parties for kids, painting and Prosecco evenings for the grown ups and even if you don’t want to paint you can just have coffee and cake! One of the best places to be in Tilehurst."
