About the Pub

Many years ago as the Potters Arms this pub had a fascinating rambling interior with several rooms off a central corridor, a semblance of which can be seen today. It's been through a some structural change since as well as having a spell as part of the O'Neill's chain before reverting back to the Potters. The entrance (note the pub operates an over 25 age policy) takes you into an often busy front bar with a dining room off to the left although food, chosen from an extensive menu, can be had elsewhere (note breakfast served from Monday - Saturday from 9am until 11.30am; Sunday Lunch is served 12-5pm - email: At the rear is a large spacious room with a variety of seating; this hosts a popular accoustic night (Thursday and early Friday evening) and live music on Friday and Saturday. In Autumn 2015 it underwent a major face lift both outside and inside, the premises being extended to align with the adjacent Friars Walk bus station. The extension included the "Potters Bar" roof terrace for al fresco drinking and dining. An interesting array of local scenes and sporting memorabilia are displayed on the walls. It's handily placed for local bus services and taxi rank which is just around the corner, while the market and main shopping areas are close to hand as are other attractions such as the Riverfront/Glan yr Afon Theatre and Cineworld. Public car parks are nearby.
