RECOMMENDATION | Pots2Go, Harrogate
Creative Fun at Pots2Go, Harrogate
Pots2Go is a small, child, pet and baby-friendly ceramic café on Montpelier Parade in Harrogate. Youngest had been pestering me for a while to go and last week we had a morning free whilst the older two were at tennis camp. I saw my opportunity to tick a box and gain much needed Mummy brownie points.
I only have one experience of painting pots with my kids and it was many years ago when the elder two were aged 4 and 2. It was a rainy-day activity I’d gleefully chosen whilst wearing my smug mothering badge. The badge didn’t stay on long and it has taken me 8 years to consider going again because both kids spent all of 30 seconds splatting paint on a small pig and a small skull, before announcing they were done. Both inane objects were poo-brown colour and have remained hidden in a drawer ever since.
This time, I was hoping for at least a pot I could make some use of, even if it was just for catching drips under the u-bend.
We were the first there, keen as mustard. Mabel chose a medium sized bunny to paint. I tried to point her in the direction of something useful, but it was the bunny or an even larger dog.
I opted for a pot with the word “LOVE” cut out the front.
We were both offered the use of aprons and we were then shown to our table, which was all set up with paints, brushes, water and kitchen roll for any spillages.
We spent just over an hour creating our beautiful pots. Mabel was focused and dedicated and we both thoroughly enjoyed our time at Pots2Go.
Highly recommended but probably for aged 5 and over. Pots start at £5 for a small egg cup. Mabel’s bunny was £16 and my pot was £15. I also had a cup of tea (£1.50) so our total bill was £32.50. Pots2Go is located at 25 Montpellier Parade, Harrogate.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
Before I move onto the impeccable five-course tasting menu, it’s only fair to mention that Grays Court is the only hotel in York with private access to the city’s mediaeval city walls and the view of the Minster from some of the hotel’s well-appointed rooms is incredible. There’re only 12 rooms making this little piece of 12th century Jacobean real-estate more like a rather large and rather plush family home than a hotel.
Food trucks offering an epic selection of food flavours from across the world hosted under the iconic railway arches of Glasgow Central station. This place ticks all my boxes – kid-friendly, dogs welcome, great food selection, beer to keep the hubby happy (including a microbrewery within), play area to burn off some toddler energy – but not compromising on style, decent wine if required or cool location.
Thyme Café is the perfect balance between eating in a nice establishment, without feeling awkward for taking small children. Great food, where the standard does not drop for the kid’s menu.
Loads of tasty choices on the menu, enough to keep you wanting to go back several times over!!
