The Pot Food & Wine

The Pot pops with a vibrancy that comes from an exciting, ever-changing wine list and an all-day kitchen that understands what casual dining should be. Out come the timber boards loaded with coriander-flecked corn croquettes and fiery chilli jam and "pot buns" containing goodies such as tangy char siu pork and cucumber. Simplicity is done well, too, with a jumble of char-grilled peppered local squid with spring onions, the bitterness of the curly, charcoal-singe on the tentacles highlighting their sweetness. Thick hunks of roasted pork belly share proceedings with the unlikely combination of a kimchi-and-cauliflower purée and a creamy apple-and-wombok rémoulade. Classic bentwood bistro chairs, brown paper tablecloths and upbeat tunes make this a breezy, appealing hangout. Both the wine list and the front of house team are notable in their ability to charm and accommodate in equal measure.
