The Burgess Room
The stunning Burgess Room is our signature room. It hosts a selection of the original moulds previously used in the Burleigh factory from their 130+ years of manufacturing on the site.
You may recognize The Burgess Room made famous as the judging room used on the TV show, The Great Pottery Throw Down or one of many other British TV shows it's featured in.
The room is located on the upper floor and is on the same level as the lift, and therefore accessible to everyone. It houses wooden tables and wooden cushioned chairs. Banqueting capacity is 60 people.

The room hosts wooden tables and wooden cushioned chairs and is located on the upper floor. It is the on the same level as the lift which means it is accessible to all. Banqueting capacity is 90 people.
The Arden Mezzanine
The Arden Mezzanine is a lovely open space area located above the Middleport Pottery Tea Room, and has a relaxed, informal feel. The flexibility of this room could transform it into a buffet area, children's area, space for a photo booth or games area, or a dance floor, to name but a few ideas.
Consisting of four very large tables with benches, this room is not located on the same floor as the lift and therefore careful consideration of your guests is required when booking this area. Banqueting capacity is 30 people.
A unique and flexible space with an informal feel, the Davenport Gallery is ideal for a drinks reception, or a space to display your seating plan or gift table, or even a quiet area with comfy sofas.
The Packing House Café and canal side
The Middleport Pottery Café is located below the Arden Mezzanine. Access via double doors at ground level opens out onto our picturesque canal side, with additional outdoor seating. It's a beautiful spot to sit on a summers evening. Maximum capacity inside is 36 people.
