The food was superb, there were 4 of us and all our starters, mains and desserts were so special. (I had the specialty dish which is their chicken- 10/10!!) Such a... More

A bit of a hidden jem down a long lane of the Gilford Road. Here you will find excellent food and a warm welcome from the staff

My wife and I had friends over here staying from Florida on vacation, and we booked a meal in The Pot Belly for them, We really enjoyed the first class atmosphere of the upstairs lounge bar and seating area where the owner Brian made our friends very welcome with a typical gesture of a round of drinks on the house....

The Potbelly seems to have found the perfect combination of good family wholesome cooking and fine dining , the service is the best you will find anywhere its as if you are a long lost relative when you enter this gem in the...

I was slightly disappoint by choices on menu. Food and service was quick and efficient but no over friendly. Food as adequate but... More

My family had an excellent tasting meal at The Pot Belly but it was in a very unpleasant atmosphere because of The Pot Belly's obnoxious owner and his condescending attitude towards my family. We were there to celebrate a 50th birthday party and the way we were spoken to at times by the owner was disgusting! Besides these unpleasantries the... More
