We’ve been lucky enough to host some of our favourite food critics and to top things off, it seems they’ve all enjoyed themselves! Here are a selection of the kind words written about the restaurant.

Jay Rayner in The Observer

“The Potted Pig is a gift to the city...”
“The Potted Pig is a jewel...”

If I'm wrong on restaurant choices I know you'll tell me, but certainly the Potted Pig, located in reconditioned, brick-lined bank vaults, is a jewel. They describe their food as British, with an occasional nod to French classics in one direction and New York grills in the other, and that just about does it. It is solid, gutsy food without dogma and with quite a lot of pig.

“The Potted Pig is thoroughly charming”

The menu was varied with a nice range of meats including rabbit, pork, lamb, beef and pigeon. To start, we chose the signature dish, Potted Pig with toast and pickles and the offaly good breakfast. Both were really good and very well presented. I particularly liked the offaly good breakfast as it was cooked so nicely.

Gareth Ludkin in Buzz Magazine

“a charming restaurant, packed with character and a delicious and original menu to boot”

The restaurant’s bar specialises in gin, and with 20 excellent varieties to sample, a long lunch or evening meal is certainly recommended. The Potted Pig’s modern British menu offers a little something extra for the more adventurous diner. From the bone marrow and duck heart starter, to the beautiful rabbit main course and whole suckling pig (available for groups of eight), the menu is seasonal, unpretentious in its approach, and singularly unique in its offering of quality but reasonably priced British-inspired food in Cardiff.
