A stunning café and gift shop in West Hallam.



The Bottle Kiln is located in the village of West Hallam, a few miles northeast of Derby city centre. This stunning gift shop and café is approaching 30 years of heritage in its present usage, after the Stone family purchased the derelict former pottery site in 1983. Today the Bottle Kiln offers visitors a taste of the heritage having lovingly protected the bottle kiln chimney, whilst building the complex around this listed landmark.


The café offers a beautiful selection of homemade hot and cold plates as well as those favourite cakes and puddings which will certainly satisfy your sweet tooth! The apple and cinnamon scones are a particular favourite! Many styles of tea and award winning fair trade coffees are on offer, coffees are pristinely finished off with creative images in the froth of your Latte or Cappuccino such as a leaf or heart. Adorning the walls of the classic modern décor are artworks from the resident artist Charles Stone which add to the overall ambience. The café is child friendly with clean, spacious changing facilities available. Juices, meals and snacks for your little ones are readily available, why not treat them to a junior hot chocolate?


The gift shop stocks an extensive range including decorative home accessories, toiletries, stationery, cards, giftware and of course pottery to tempt and delight. With four distinct areas to explore – Gifts, Home & Accessories, Handmade and the Potting Shed, there is something for everyone and all occasions. This award winning shop offers a beautiful selection of jewellery from UK designers such as Martine Wester (London), Carrie Elspeth (Wales), and Tracey Davidson (Devon). Jewellery can also be found from places further afield such as Creative Dezigns’ South African collection.
