Slightly disappointed with the latest visit to the pot. We only ever went occasionally, but it was always excellent. Not so much on this last visit. Both starters were small, and I hate having to ration chutney or bread to eat all the pate. Give enough. The two mains were also disappointing in terms of flavour (duck and overpowering bean)...

We had an impromptu night on the town on Saturday. We decided to try somewhere new for dinner. We managed to get an early table even though it was last minute. I had the pate to start which was really nice although you could give more toast to go with the size of pot! I had the boulliabiasse for main... More

Had a quick breakfast with my family, we were around than popped in with my children. Loved the salmon and the rest. Very relaxing even though this kind of pop up restaurant not for children really! Food outstanding, service perfect. Recommended to everyone who open for new things.

The food here was very tasty, and reasonably priced. Scallops were delicious, although slightly cold (reason for the 4 stars!). Highlight of the meal was the main of Poullet, absolutely perfectly cooked, delicious sauce and very generous portion!! Too full for pudding, but will definitely be back to try them! The restaurant has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and staff were... More

We came to The Pot for brunch. We had the small Welsh breakfast and added the bubble and leek and the eggs Benedict. The food was delicious!!!! I'd highly recommend the bubble and leek. We all thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely return. Lovely staff too.

This is not just a love story. This is a story of boy eats steak. The Saturday was like many Saturdays that had been before, it began in no extraordinary way but now I know that Saturday would change my life forever... The rain lashed down, the night was drawing in and the sky became black like the fur of... More

I asked are you still serving the Eggs, yes was the reply. Great I took a seat and ordered. The restaurant was warm and comfortable, it had about 40 covers and was... More

Description
Cosy bistro with 40 seats, offering a range of homemade breakfasts and lunches using locally sourced produce, and a range of seasonal drinks. The cafe transforms into a French style bistro every Wednesday through to Saturday evening, serving up classics such as Steak Tartare to start, followed by pan fried seabass with steamed mussels, langoustine & ratatouille, and a brulee to finish. Always a cosy, relaxed atmosphere.
