Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a really lovely place with wonderful staff. We chose it for a wake following a funeral and we were very well looked after. We were greeted on arrival with teas and coffees and then enjoyed a light buffet lunch which was delicious and...beautifully presented.More

I’ve been to The Pottery before and always had excellent food and service, today was no different but I was there for a memorial rather than dinner. The venue was perfect. It was intimate and they permitted use of their TV to show a picture...reel. The staff were all very friendly and the nibbles were great. Thank you.More

We recently had our works Christmas Party at The Pottery having previously been here for other work occasions and every time it is second to none. The staff are extremely attentive and cheerful, you feel well looked after and never rushed. We were one of...two parties from the same employer which caused a bit of confusion at first, but was soon sorted and we were seated and provided with ample amazing tapas fare including a Spanish version of the obligatory Christmas sprouts which were delicious! The decor in The Pottery is always quirky and fun but even more so for Christmas which made us all feel very festive. So thank you Lucia and team, another triumph!More

The service was great, warm and friendly and the food was amazing on the main menu. They had a local band outside called Neovenator and we saw them after our lunch. Highly recommended and lovely mulled wine 🍷

Popped in for a sneaky Thursday date night. Love this place. Excellent service, by both the server and by management. They even prepared a treat, to accompany the bill. Bottle of good Rioja, nachos and pork belly for starter/start the tapas exploration.......followed by marinated anchovies...and calamari. Not a fault with anything!! Sorry, no #foodporn pics, we just dived in 🙈🙈 Excellent evening. Very affordable. See you again, soon!! Thank you Scott &Gilly 🇿🇦🇬🇧More

I had a fantastic dining experience at pottery. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, the service was impeccable, and the food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend trying their paella. it's a flavor explosion in every bite. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable, making the...evening even more enjoyable. Whether it's a special occasion or a casual night out, Pottery is a top-notch choice for an unforgettable meal.More

We went to The Pottery for my wife’s birthday with a group of 20 family and friends. The food, party menu, was fantastic, wine, beer and Prosecco were lovely and the staff were outstanding. I guess it was quite expensive, but when everything you get...is first rate, then it’s worth it. Never any pressure on us or the group and we were allowed to take our time, mingle with our friends before we sat down to eat. Really accommodating to all mod our requests, nothing was too much trouble. We’ve had many texts today saying what a great evening it was. I’d thoroughly recommend The Pottery as a celebration venue.More

The menus advertised no longer exists. It is now ridiculously expensive. £10 for 8 pieces of calamari, the same for 8 tiny pieces of belly pork and the same cost for 5 tiny pieces of chicken. The menu price which was £18 for 3 tapas...now cost £28-30. I used to go every few months but will not go back for tapas as it is a total rip off. The table had 2 burgers which were good and a good size but as a tapas bar it is totally not worth it. I will not be returning!More

Our daughter had her wedding reception here. The venue and service could not have been better. There are a lot of tables and we were mainly in the outside patio area at the rear of the restaurant which is well organised with many tables and...chairs and which suited a warm June afternoon and early-mind evening very well. The theme is Spanish tapas and is very well executed. Our son who lived in Spain for a number of years was very impressed. Not all the items we had are on the regular menu (though we’ve had the normal menu and it is good). The staff were incredibly welcoming both in preparing for the reception, during the occasion and when we collected things the morning after.More

We visited the Pottery for lunch as a family having visited before when the menu was limited on Mother's Day. The decor in the main restaurant is beautiful and they have a lovely garden too. The food was excellent and very good value. Good vegetarian...choices, too. It's wonderful to find a decent restaurant that's dog friendly- it makes a change from going to pubs. Very friendly service too.More
