Huge scones, great place to sit and watch the world go by.

Stopped here with our dog for tea & scones on a sunny afternoon during the Easter holidays. A great place to sit outside and people watch. Busy, as it's the first tea shop you see on leaving the car park for the village, but the staff were very friendly and efficient, even bringing our dog a water... read more

I chose the steak which literally came with literally 10 chips (I thought expensive for over £14 pounds. The children and my wife had average pizza which was fairly tasteless, the food was very average and the service was very poor, on the plus side it is situated in a nice spot

Managed to park at the Primary School on Saturday and this restaurant was just round the corner. Sat outside in the sunshine intending to have a sandwich, but saw a sharing platter for 2 which looked good value and with great ingredients. When it arrived we, and the table next door, gasped at the platter. Chicken, pulled pork, salmon, sausages,... More

We visited this restaurant on the third night of our holiday and expected a lovely meal as the majority of the reviews on tripadvisor were excellent. After a very disappointing meal, and a closer scrutiny of reviews, we realised that other people had had similar experiences to us. The waitress was friendly and service was prompt. However, the food was,... More

Having a short stay in Windermere. Enjoyed an evening stroll around Grasmere and spotted Potted Out as we walked back through the village. Sat outside (beautiful weather) and enjoyed drinks and a lovely meal. Friendly staff. I would go again.

This is a lovely little spot right bang in the centre of Grasmere with a nice (licensed) menu. We didn’t eat here but sampled their wine and I would recommend it. It was quite busy but the service was quick, of course it helped immensely that the weather was lovely so we sat outside to make the most of it.

My husband, son, dog and I walked from Ambleside to Grasmere during our recent stay in the Lake District. We arrived at 12 noon and were able to sit on the terrace in the sun watching other walkers going to and fro. The food was exceptionally good and service was excellent. Highly recommended!

We had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The pizza was fabulous and service with smile. We ate outside as the sun was actually shining and found it a very pleasant experience.
