The Pot is a charming and friendly place. I can't say enough good things about it! The food is wonderfully cooked and perfectly presented. I took my partner, his mother, and his sister here for a meal in Cardiff; all 3 can be very picky...More

We really enjoyed a super Sunday lunch. The restaurant is small and quirky but the food was excellent and great value for money. The staff were outstanding. Worth going for a relaxed informal meal.

Had an amazing dinner here, lovely food which was a really reasonable price. Very cosy restaurant and authentic to its French cuisine. Would really recommend this lovely place, probably worth booking as it’s not huge.

We visited on a week night as a couple out for anniversary celebrations and were very pleased we did. As it was a week night, we benefited from the two course deal. We may have paid a lower price but there was absolutely no sign...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.
