"My daughter had a party here last week for her fifth birthday and had a brilliant time.
They had decorated the party area really nicely, they were very kind and helpful to the children and went above and beyond what I had expected for the price.
The food was lovely and there was so much of it too. I really recommend The Painted Pot for a Party, my daughter loved every minute of it and her friends did too. Thank you!"

Thank you from me and the party."
