The service was excellent and the food was so tasty. We all had fish, tasted lovely and was cooked to perfection. It is not cheap but well worth it

This is the second time we have eaten in this restaurant , and without doubt if we were resident to this area we would
eat here often .
The service is superb professional and friendly , love the decor wonderful.
The menu although small is perfect , my husband and I had starters mains and dessert , every course was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious.
Thank you to Potters for making our anniversary meal probably one of the best dining experiences we have enjoyed .

We booked Potters on a recommendation and it was everything we hoped it would be. We are on holiday in Bude and wanted somewhere special to celebrate our anniversary and the end of our holiday.

From the moment we arrived our waitress was friendly and welcoming and this service continued throughout the evening.

The menu was simple, offering a choice of excellent dishes. Everything we chose was delicious.

We particularly loved the simple, non fussy decor and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Fabulous food, great service & ambience. Knew about allergies etc & dealt with v well. The food is just so good, the pork dish was stunning, who knew hazelnuts would go with pork. What may have been nice as a brucy bonus would be home made bread or an amuse bouche - those extra touches for the prices would have been the icing on the cake. Never the less, gorgeous food & can highly recommend.

Fantastic restaurant serving mouth watering food to satisfy foodies. Visiting Potters choosing the tasting menu we set upon an evening of impressive, creative food treats delivered by a courteous waitress who took the time to deliver 5* service. Would highly recommend visiting Potters, we will be back when we return to Bude next year. You need to book in advance as this restaurant is very popular.

Superb food, very tasty. Steak done to perfection and very tender. Pork dish was tender and the sauce complimented the dish beautifully. Obviously a very experienced and talented chef.
Extremely good with food allergies and intolerances.
Waitress/waiter service excellent. They knew the dishes and could help when asked.
Lovely setting

Delicious food from start to finish. Halibut main course was absolutely stunning. Couldn’t really taste the Thai element to the ‘Thai bisque’ would be my one criticism but still a stunning lobster bisque. Wife really enjoyed the apricot dessert and the petit fours and coffee were spot on. Triple cooked chips with bearnaise: winner!

This is a really classy restaurant addition to Bude. The food is excellent and locally sourced. Service was sweet and efficient, although the gaps between courses did mean we left without dessert and coffee, which was a shame. I really hope this place will be successful and help to lift the overall standard in the area.
