Located in the busy seaside town of Bude, Potters is owned and run by Chef Oly Clarke and wife Nikki. At Potters we showcase fresh, seasonal and carefully sourced local produce. Our menu will be changing weekly, if not daily, and our dishes will be simple but delicious. We like to describe it best as as Cornish tapas. Our menu will include an offering of snacks, small plates, larger plates, sides and desserts to enjoy as much or as little as you would like.
