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.

    Mediocre and slow service sadly. The food was either far too strong in flavour (chicken wings were ridiculously spicy) or completely bland. The desserts were good.

    Really nice. We made a last minute booking for Sunday lunch and were really pleased with our choice. The staff were lovely and food was good. Roast potatoes were a highpoint - usually this is where pub lunches aren't as good as at home but these were very good.

    We had a lovely lunch at The Potters on Sunday. The curry of the day never disappoints and yesterday’s Pork Katsu curry was no exception. The staff are always so friendly and welcoming too and they were very attentive.

    Had a starter and a side as mains were expensive. Had fish cake, which was altered to crab cake, looked deep fried and was tiny, for £10 with sad looking salad. Had a portion of vegetables which were virtually inedible as so hard. Friend had a panini, which was “5 out of ten”.

    The welcome and service were excellent and the Sunday roasts were delicious and plentiful at a fair price. The only slight downside was that the dining room was cold on a very miserable and cold day. Would definitely recommend this pub and we shall go again.

    We have been to the Potters Arms several times in the last decade and went there on the spur of the moment on Sunday 19/11/23 expecting ( as every time previously) good food . Unfortunately, for some reason, it was so poor it bordered on inedible. My wife managed to slowly eat hers but I am afraid I just left mine ( the "Sunday Lunch") on the plate having only eaten about 10% of it. Despite that, when the plate was collected I was not asked for any feedback (mainly I guess because it was obvious what my response would be ) . Needless to say that will be our last visit to the Potters Arms.

    First time at The Potters Arms and we weren't disappointed. A lovely pub/restaurant with a welcoming/friendly team and an an excellent choice of food, especially for a Sunday lunchtime. The food was plentiful and of an excellent standard, and service was spot on - overall very good value and would highly recommend. Thanks to all of the team at The Potters Arms for an enjoyable Sunday lunch, we'll definitely be returning at some point soon.

    We visited Monday lunchtime, so the pub was pretty quiet. Modern, clean, and pleasant environment. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Food was ery good quality, as usual. Menu is NOT the frequent dull, unimaginative fare you get in "chain pubs". Instead, there is a good variety of dishes, with a more "local" hint. One of my favourite pubs !!

    We were a group of ten cycling friends who arrived at 1.15 on a Sunday lunchtime. The staff were very friendly and worked quickly and effectively to serve us during a busy session. They were aisles well set up to allow us to split the bill and pay separately!

    We were at The Potters Arms on an evening when there was a power cut. Despite this, every effort was made to produce food which turned out to be excellent. We would love to go back on an evening when things are more normal, but full marks to the staff for coping so well.

    Celebrated my Dad’s 80th with a delicious lunch. Food was great - nice and spicy Thai red curry and an impressive vegan wellington (refreshing to have something different as a vegan option). The staff were very friendly, service was excellent and they made a fuss of my Dad for his birthday - will definitely return. Thank you!
