“Big portions”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

if you like more food for your buck then this is for you. if you are sniffy about decor and diet then don't go in. it is obvious from the outside what is on the inside. yes it can best be described as retro but it takes me back to the greasy spoons of my youth. giant toasted baguettes. good coffee. mugs of tea. basic toilet facilities. friendly waiting staff. good stop on a rainy day in bodmin.

We went here on a bank holiday as it was the only place open and have never looked back! The menu is extensive and you can basically order any combination of anything on the menu however strange it may seem. We now regularly visit.. at least once a month.. and shamefully sometimes more than once a week! The pictures on the menus are exactly what you get, massive portions at good prices and the bacon and chips are so good! Much of what they offer is also available to take away. Admittedly the décor isn't anything amazing, a refurbishment wouldn't hurt and if you're looking for something particularly healthy this might not be the best place.. but the staff and food are lovely and I am yet to be disappointed!

“Top breakfast”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

We had a very nicely cooked full english, falling magnificently off the diet.
The two ladies running the cafe were very nice and the place itself is very clean and well looked after.
In particular liked the photos of the food served, they have not used any form of doctoring to make the food look its just stepped off the covers of the Good Food magazine. What you see is what get and what we got was very nice and very good value.

“Greasy Spoonville”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

Popped into 'Pots' for a coffee - As someone who tries to maintain a healthy diet, I asked the waitress if I could have a filter cofee & did they have skimmed milk? Also asked for sweetener. Recieved a cofee which was made with all milk - and which tasted suspiciously like full fat. The sweeteners were in an absolutely filthy dispenser.

Looking art the menu shows photos of Sunday roasts that look like they were taken in the '70s complete with gravy splattered all over the plates. Unfortunately, they look just like the Sunday roasts that are thrown together, sorry - lovingly assembled.

If you are looking for an additional spare tyre & 'chips with everything', 'Pots' could be the place for you. If not, go elsewhere
