The view is the best thing about this restaurant. Table of 3: drinks order took 20 minutes and kids meal and pizza took 35 minutes and the pizza base was raw. Very limited menu. Service slow and food poor. Unsatisfactory.

We went to Pot and Kettle many years ago and decided to never go back as the service was shocking. Well this morning, we thought to give them another chance and see if the service had improved, sadly it hadn’t. This place has such potential...More
