Visited one of the best pubs to do a roast today, but, with a birthday bash for my husband for seven of us - it wasn't up to scratch. Starters were fantastic and the meats, (beef, lamb and chicken) were good too. But the roast potatoes were dismal. Little bits quickly put into hot fat I reckon and tasted like... More

Thank you for your review, we are sorry you didn't enjoy the potatoes. Yesterday was the busiest Sunday we have experienced with the pub fully booked and people arriving waiting for tables. The kitchen was working beyond its capacity, but still managed to accomodate every guest that arrived. However it appears the potatoes that are freshly cooked in goose fat... More

I've eaten here twice recently, one to celebrate our anniversary and once for a family party to celebrate a 70th birthday. Both times the food and service were excellent as was the real ale. Gary and his team were so helpful when we booked for a party of 9. We needed gluten free for one member and nothing was too... More

I have eaten at the Golden Pot twice since my first review and everything has been superb so I really do not know what SueRae2014 are on about. Everything is fine at the GP.

My sister and I made the mistake of pre-ordering a roast meal for late afternoon one Sunday. What was served up should never have left the kitchen. Everything had obviously been hanging around for a long time and was totally inedible. Shrivelled up parsnips, over-salted swede, dried up potatoes and overcooked lamb. The only reason I didn't make a fuss... More

Thank you for your review and bringing this to my attention. All of our food is freshly prepared with fresh produce delivered daily, and we never take pre orders for Sunday Lunch and prepare it before a customers arrival. It is impossible to serve a fresh roast dinner - "pre ordered" so I am making full enquiries with my staff... More

It's taken us time to write this review (our last visit was at the end of May '14). This is partly down to not having the time and partly because we have been trying to find the right words for the review. We have been regulars at The Golden Pot for 13 years now and have in the main thoroughly... More

Many thanks for your review. I guess our style of management is very different from John's, we have a number of businesses and feel that if you have a management team in place as good as we inherited at the Golden Pot, they should be encouraged to use their experience and manage the day to day running of the Pub,...

Having discovered, through a response to my earlier review by the new owners, that the Golden Pot had changed hands, I booked a return visit with friends on what turned out to be a very busy Tuesday evening in the restaurant. Although the staff to customer ration appeared to be stretching to sat the least, with two people trying to... More

We have lived in the area for just over 36 years and never got around to calling in before. I don't know what it was like before the Take-over and Refurbishment but we can't praise it highly enough now! As a couple that don't venture to restaurants very often you can see how impressed we are as have taken guests... More

We'd spotted this pub from the road the other day and it looked very nice from the outside. So we planned a visit. We'd been to two nearby pubs many a time without ever spotting this one. But would it be any good? The wife stepped in ahead of me and turned to give a wink and a nod. First... More

This is the first time we have ever visited this pub, we saw it up for sale and then saw it re-open. Every time we went past we always said to each other that we must stop in and see what is was like. Well today was that day, and oh my what a nice surprise. The first initial appearance,... More
