Have been coming here for many years for breakfast. They do a good ones. I recommend the eggs Benedict, or "eggs at sea" (smoked salmon), and great home made hollandaise. Coffee is Good and the service, friendly.

Me and my partner live round the corner so often pop into the tin pot for a glass of wine and food when we can't be bothered to cook. Food is always lovely and really good value for money with regards to quality and portion size. Shout out to the lovely English waitress who always stops and has a chat... More

I love the Tin Pot, but not really because of its food! Mostly it's tasty but not amazing, the coffee's OK but also not amazing. But it's a stable force in an ever changing world, and I love that it survives. The decor feels like home, you can sit as long as you like without being hassled, and the food... More

Cozy little cafè with beautiful open fire burning on a cool day. Delicious food and coffee. Friendly staff and prompt service. What more could you ask for. We will return. 😊😊

Nice little and cozy cafe. I went their with colleagues on a Tuesday evening and it got really busy for dinner time. The food is very good and fresh but the drink / wine list is good but limited. Disappointing was, as we arrived 30 min before dinner schedule, we couldn't order yet from the dinner menu. We had the... More

This place is darling! The food is delicious, as is the coffee, and the quick service. I happily lingered for a couple of hours each visit on my recent trip. Love the decor too

I think the Tin Pot is a bit of an icon amongst the locals so I decided to venture in for breakfast and give it a go. The coffee was good, the food was nice and the staff were lovely BUT the place is very run down, the toilet was not very clean and it all made me wonder how... More
