I'll start by saying that the food is lovely; we've had dinner and breakfast and both were tasty, really well-cooked meals. For me however, the ambiance and surroundings also need to be similar inasmuch as you can't have good food and useless surroundings and vice...More

Visited on a Saturday evening, our first visit, good atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff attentive but not pushy, food was very good as was the wine and considering the quality reasonably priced, well worth a visit.

As you enter the restaurant you get a good feeling. The Pot is a small restaurant, it's clean, the tables are well positioned (you're not on top of the table next to you), the staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is good. It...More

If you go looking for lunch on a working day in France you'll find no end of small independent restaurants providing well-cooked interesting meals at a fixed price. It's not so easy in the UK, but here's one. Six of us, gathered for a planning...More

Cosy bistro with 40 seats, offering a range of homemade breakfasts and lunches using locally sourced produce, and a range of seasonal drinks. The cafe transforms into a French style bistro every Wednesday through to Saturday evening, serving up classics such as Steak Tartare to start, followed by pan fried seabass with steamed mussels, langoustine & ratatouille, and a brulee to finish. Always a cosy, relaxed atmosphere.
