Richard has been the custodian of The Potters Arms for almost 7 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.

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.

Our events side of the business is getting well established with food provided for groups of up to 100 people, no matter what the occasion, whether it be a birthday, an anniversary, wedding breakfast or wake we can tailor our events menu to meet your needs.

Very nice pub with excellent service.....I started with the mussels which were delicious...then I had the roast beef which was not great, very chewy And stringy but the apple crumble and custard for desert was sublime and the best I’ve had. Shame about the beef but the trimmings were excellent. Will go shown for sure. Great for a summer lunch as well.

Excellent food, excellent service. I went with 2 of my girl friends and I ordered the burger with chips which was lovely, however, one of my friends ordered the chicken roast and I had extreme food envy.... it looked amazing and she said it was!

We sat in the bar after eating and played a giant game of cards and had so much fun... the staff were welcoming and their ‘regulars’ were friendly too... lovely pub in lovely setting x

Good choice of food. Our waitress was very helpful, she went to the kitchen to confirm the intensity of the curry as one of our party likes really hot curries. Nice atmosphere.

Food was generally poor quality, and in some instances genuinely unpleasant.

King prawn starter was average with a very weakly flavoured garlic butter sauce.

The kimi coated chicken burger I ordered tasted liked a frozen bartered chicken burger out of a packet; grey chicken with a white fatty coating and greasy under cooked batter. Chips greasy and unpleasant.

Service quite slow for drinks in particular.

Lovely venue and excellent service however we were a large group and 3 menus were on offer, Thai, Indian and traditional pub grub. When are meals arrived. We found the food very hit and miss mainly the Thai and Indian where it was the case it was either very good or not so good. Great idea but not sure if the variety was just a bit too much to handle all in one night. Nonetheless, we all enjoyed our night out there and would still recommend the Potters Arms for food and drink.

Perfect pub for a Sunday roast. Perfectly cooked meat, not pre-sliced and heated up! Generous Yorkshire puddings. Wonderful gravy with roast potatoes, carrot and onion. Also a generous bowl of vegetables. Service with a smile too. We were too full to try puddings! Our dogs were made very welcome in the bar area.

Nice pub with restaurant area. Food is good. Pub food but also a Thai menu to supplement it. Local beers on hand pull. Been a few times. Pub is lively with usually something going e.g race night on our recent visit. Parking is usually a bit tight but u can always find somewhere relatively close. Tucked away in the countryside so not particularly easy to find on a first visit.

Warm welcome after 100mile journey fron SE coast for a funeral. ( 1mile -5mins from Chiltern Crematorium)
Quick service and good varied lunch menu from sandwiches, paninis, tolunch pots and salads as well as main menu.
Try the chicken croquettes caesar salad and cumberland sausages with onions and buttery mash which we had!

We had not been to the Potters fro a while, and decided to do a walk there with friends one sunny Friday evening. The pub is now owned by the landlord, and has had some work done on it. On Fri (and Sat) evenings there is a Thai menu, which we all had and the food was very good, washed done with some Rebellion beer ! Excellent.
Staff were all friendly and bubbly and the food was good.
If you have not been and want a proper pub, worth a visit.

The tempura starter was fantastic and the espresso creme brûlée was delicious. The chicken masaman was tasty but it was served in a bowl and the rice in a separate bowl, both of which were SO hot I couldn’t pour them onto the plate, which made eating them quite difficult. Also it seemed too salty for me.
I would definitely go there again, but I wouldn’t recommend the masaman.
The staff were great, not too fussy!

A cut above many pubs with good food and friendly service. My only criticism of note is that I would have liked more fish options on the menu.

We went on Fathers' Day 2019 (16th June). Nice, relaxing experience. Staff very young but very professional (that's not a combination you often see!). The food was good and substantial. Reasonably priced. Will definitely be going again.

Had a lovely Sunday lunch - good amount of meat and big Yorkshire pud! Portion sizes were generous and very tasty. Our table also had Ribs and Fish and Chips - again generous and good! Great service. The room was very noisy when full but better when a few tables left. Would definitely come again!

This was the second time a group of us had Sunday lunch at Potters Arms. The first occasion was Mothers day and this time 7 of us went on the May Bank Holiday weekend.
Considering both Sundays were very busy, the service, atmosphere and food was first rate. Would highly recommend.

A late review for a previous meal - highly recommend the Potter's Arms for great food in a relaxing atmosphere. Initially visited this pub restaurant when I read the good reviews , and was not disappointed. Have dined here a few times since then and have always enjoyed the food. The most recent visit for Sunday lunch was very enjoyable. Particularly enjoy the fabulous desserts! Staff are very friendly, and I look forward to returning again soon.

Had a lovely meal. I liked the idea of pot meals. For me it was the right quantity as sometimes there is too much food served in restaurants. Good value. I had room for a lovely dessert.
