Great food in a friendly atmosphere. The frogs legs in a crumb coating are well worth a try. Nicely balanced menu with great service.

It was a quiet morning when we came to Thé Pot for breakfast and the atmosphere was very different from what I remembered (in the previous building, where it was always cosy, very warm and fully packed). The place looked a bit scruffy too, and...More

I visited with my husband a couple of weeks ago. The Pot Bistro had been recommended and online reviews were good, so we thought we'd give it a go. We did enjoy our visit, but perhaps it wasn't as good as I was expecting. Perhaps...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.
