It was my first time in The Pot with my boyfriend, and two friends. The food portions were really generous. The peppercorn sauce with the sirloin steak was something else!

We had a delicious meal at the Pot with very friendly service. The scallop starter and the ox cheek bourguignon were particularly good.

Having previously only visited The Pot for breakfast I booked to go for dinner with my partner.

For starters I had the blue cheese fondue whilst he had the scallops, which he said were the best he'd had. For mains he had steak whilst I had the ox cheek bourguignon which was perfect autumn food. The meat was really tender and fell apart.

I was too full for dessert but my partner had the trio of desserts and especially rated the chocolate torte.

Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We both enjoy eating out and supporting local businesses rather than chains when possible and we'll definitely be back.

I’ve been going to The Pot for many years and it’s never failed to deliviver delicious food and great service!!

When I saw they’d joined First Table I couldn’t wait to go again and I was able to indulge in some of the more extravagant choices on the menu. Opting for a traditional French starter, we had frogs legs for the first time, which to our amazement did taste like succulent chicken with a light and tasty batter to coat.

I would usually go for their beef bourguignon (which is amazing and I would highly recommend) but this time I chose lamb rump, a more expensive option! I was in heaven and glad I tried a new dish!

Despite being early to the restaurant with less people to fill the place, the staff at The Pot are extremely friendly and create a great vibe.

Whatever the occasion, I would recomend this fab local eatery time and time again.

I rarely leave reviews but I thought I’d share my experience because it was exceptional and probably the nicest meal I’ve had in Cardiff. The service was warm, friendly and quick; the food was perfectly cooked and presented really well. I’d say if you want to dine somewhere special - this is your place!

When we turned up the waitress was very welcoming and gave us the option of any table (benefit of first table!). We were quickly provided with menus and a jug of water - the deal doesn’t apply to their in house deals, which makes sense! Gower gold ale got good reviews from my father in law. The lamb rump was delicious and beautifully presented on little mounds of zingy smashed peas. The boulangere potatoes were great (especially if you aren’t good with cream). The steak was perfectly cooked and the chips very crisp! We were tempted into dessert and I had the trio - very well sized as the chocolate torte is so decadent. The cheesecake was also eaten at a rate of knots! Service was lovely and it’s a very cosy and welcoming atmosphere! Highly recommended!

This was our first time trying First Table and we loved it! The staff were super attentive and made sure our dining experience was perfect! The food was served fresh and piping hot - I felt like I was actually in a restaurant in France! I’d definitely come here again.

First visit after a recommendation and we were impressed
Hubby had soup which was lush as were my scallops, his chicken and my lamb also spot on
Portions were too big for us so had to share dessert, the fruit tart. Probably the low point of the meal, pastry a bit thick. I suspect it was bought in. We would still return and look forward to the next visit
