American
Drawing inspiration from America’s and the UK's vibrant food and drink scene, the dining menu focuses on the strong relationship between the USA and UK. Under the leadership of the Head Chef, Ruaraidh Campbell, POTUS serves the highest quality interpretations of America and Britain's most-revered and well-loved classics.

POTUS’ creative menu will see guests enjoy an array of dishes, from a unique London - NY Hot Dog to Roasted Rack of Lamb with a Loin Wellington. With new takes on firm favourites like the New England Clam Chowder and Truffle Mac & Cheese, the restaurant utilises the finest and freshest ingredients to portray the diverse character of two nations.

POTUS is also home to an extensive American wine list, a selection of beers, spirits and a signature cocktail menu inspired by US presidents. With everything from the Teddy Smash “Hat Club”, a tribute to Roosevelt’s love for Mojitos, to a JFK & Mary (arguably one of his only true loves).

I visited with my girlfriend and we asked for a nice table and we were given one near the fire and we were allowed to stay very late at New Year's Eve. The service and friendliness were outstanding. I would go again.

Great restaurant, food was fantastic. Steaks took a bit of time to reach the table compared to the other foods. Hope to visit again.

My partner and I were celebrating an early Thanksgiving, and so we enjoyed the special menu.

Food acceptable but very quiet and staff seemed to be bored. The wine we ordered wasn't available and we were offered a worse year but still charged full price. Wasn't good value but they know they can over charge tourists.

Very nice restaurant. Friendly service. Good food, especially the Truffle Mac & Cheese and the Sirloin Steak. I'll definitely go back. Special thanks to Ciprian for the special attention and amusing anecdotes.

The cauliflower steak was very good, although served cold first time. It was cleverly presented and I’d absolutely try again. The staff seemed slightly busy / multiple areas to cover

Our first visit was OUTSTANDING! Amazing food, fabulous service and we couldn’t wait to come back. I’m not sure whether we caught them on a bad day or the chef has changed but my steak was such a disappointment. It was over cooked and a little tough. The first time we went it was possibly one of the best steaks I had ever had. The service was slow and it took about 5 mins for two glasses of wine and there was only one other table in. I will definitely try them one more time to give them the benefit of the doubt as it was so fabulous the first time. I really hope we just caught them on an off day.

Excellent, friendly staff from the moment you arrive to when you leave. Food is excellent quality at a reasonable price. The room was neutrally decorated with well laid tables and comfortable chairs.
