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.

Lovely food and friendly staff. With Covid we had to eat outside and it was a VERY windy day and a bit chilly. There were heaters though and umbrellas which helped.

It was great to get out for a meal again. Looking forward to returning to The Potters Arms again soon.

Great food for Sunday lunch after a 5 mile walk washed down with some local beer from the Rebellion brewery. Very attentive and efficient (but not intrusive) service and a good set up with some covered seating but we sat out in the sun. All very welcoming and relaxed.

Really great tasting pizzas, with a lovely view over the green make this an ideal location for dog walkers. Unfortunately service the last couple of times has been very slow and deterred us from ordering dessert/ more drinks. Overall a nice place to go though if you’re not in a rush.

The staff went above & beyond in difficult circumstances - outdoor eating in the rain! A marquee was quickly erected and tables, flowers and decorations all lit together in 10 mins to make for a comfortable & enjoyable lunch. Well done to the team - amazing effort!

Outside in the marquee, was busier than we expected given the weather was chilly.

I can see why it was busy! The food and service was great and the variety between the pizza, a la carts and Thai menus offers something for everyone.. thoroughly recommend the cheesecake options for pud too.

My first time at The Potters Arms and I couldn't be more impressed. For a Friday evening, all tables were full but the service was outstanding. We were offered drinks and food promptly, the staff were lovely and very attentive, the menu was extensive, the food was lovely and the portion sizes were huge. The seating area is large with heaters and wind breaks on some tables, which we were fortunate enough to get, meaning despite the cold wind, we were all very comfortable. Our party loved the evening so much, we've already booked our next 2 visits.

As it was the first Saturday after lockdown, we were really impressed with how the team had adapted to the new measures and been creative with creating outdoor space. They were really busy but were super positive and did a great job!

Food was average in quality but huge portions. Menu choice is very heavy and full on. Nothing healthy is on the menu for dinner such as salads. We had the brownie for dessert which had clearly been microwaved. It came out warm on one side and hot on the other.

Food was great and plenty of it! Service was a little slow to start but improved. Think this was probably due to current restrictions given the pandemic.
