Richard has been the custodian of The Potters Arms for over 8 years now, before taking over The Potters Arms his background has been 25 years in the Independent Restaurant trade, working with fresh food, searching and building relationships with the finest suppliers in the area to make sure that the food served from the kitchen is consistently the best it can possibly be.
We have just built a terrace bar which will be open for brunch and crepes, coffees, Ice Cream, Slush Cocktails & Pizzas.

Bill the Head Chef at The Potters has come in and taken over the position and his idea is that The Potters Arms being a Classic British Pub, our Menu should replicate that with lots of homemade pub classics, however with his culinary skills he will introduce a Daily Specials Menu that will be superb quality.

    The service at the table was great. Our waitress was excellent. She recognised our food was slow arriving (>1 hour) and chased it up. We didn’t have to raise the subject. The food & beer were great.

    A lovely meal, just a shame it was such a long wait for food to be served. 2 salads a burger and a curry, didn't expect that to take 40mins. Only 3 other small parties in the dining room.

    The only reason for not giving the food 5stars is because the pork crackling was left on the meat and covered in gravy, hence soggy and not crackling. Small point and a bit picky I know but that’s the only fault I could find. Lovely food, lovely service. Well done.

    the SuInday lunch was exceptional. I had my beef just as I like it (medium rare) and everything was obviously freshly cooked rather than the reheated from frozen that is all too common. Lots of gravy and plenty of food. Only downside was that we were sat by the door which was ajar a lot of the time so a bit cold. Staff were great and really enjoyed our meal. Will go again

    We went for Sunday lunch on Mother's Day and I was initially disappointed with the menu as it wasn't the full menu. My party of 4 contained 3 vegans so there was only one choice for them. But what they had was sensational. Home cooked food, carefully thought about and vegan gravy. It was full so the wait between courses took a little longer than hoped but so worth the wait. Super friendly staff who genuinely asked if everything was OK. Can't wait to go back again

    Took family including elderly parent and young nephews. Something for everyone and everyone’s food was really good. Portions generous, freshly cooked and hot. Service was excellent and although we were the only diners in the restaurant area we were made to feel very welcome and well looked after. Fish and chips were amazing, we had a vegetarian dish which was lovely , pizza for the kids which was fresh and really good and a pork and cider pie which was amazing. Can’t fault this place.

    Food out of this world, very fresh. However the meal was let down by very slow and poor service.. the room was cold, there was no background music and as we were the only ones in the restaurant there was no atmosphere. Begrudgingly paid the service bill automatically added to the bill.

    The restaurant was very cold, in fact my friend sat with her coat round her most of the evening, The food was tasty enough but the steak and ale pie’s juice was very thin. The staff were very friendly.
