Good food and excellent service

We called in after doing a long walk. Looking for lunch. The place was busy. The waitresses were excellent. Cheerful, hard working. We both ordered the Celeriac, Apple, Toasted Walnut and blue cheese risotto with crispy celeriac. It was fantastic. Ate it very slowly as we didn't want it to be... read more

We really enjoyed our lunch here, had a delicious sandwich followed by such a nice scone, one of the best I've ever had! Excellent, friendly service and high quality ingredients make this place highly recommended!

Called into the Potted Out café on Saturday 14th for a valentine lunch and was extremely happy with the service, food and the cleanliness of the café itself. I had the chicken, salmon and mixed breads platter and my wife had a steak - both meals perfect - piping hot, super tasty and generous portions. On the Sunday we had... More

We popped in here for a scone and tea whilst staying in Grasmere (we actually saw someone eating one and they were HUGE). The atmosphere and décor is incredible and we liked it so much that we returned for dinner in the evening. The food was of a very high standard (we both had pizzas) and extremely good value. Can...

after a very dodgy meal the night before this was recommended to us by some locals. I've never written a review before, but am compelled to do so now. They don't have an extensive menu but we both had different starters and mains which were all delicious, well presented and well cooked. The staff were lovely and service excellent. It... More

My partner and I dined at potted out last Saturday evening and we loved it!! It's warm and welcoming with lovely decor. The food was fabulous, I had the spaghetti bolognese and garlic and mozzarella bread - heavenly. My partner had the beef casserole which he was blown away with, it's wholesome food with a twist. We will definitely be... More

The restaurant was very well decorated and all of the furnishings were around potting up vegetables e.g plant pot shaped lights, gardening tools around the walls. We both unusually ordered the same. Starter: Confit Duck with Pistachios, fig chutney, rocket and horseradish coleslaw. Main: Roast Breast of Chicken with wild mushroom and leek risotto. We chose an Italian red wine... More

Came down from hiking, cold and wet and needed something warm! This place was lovely- and just what we needed. The soup that they advertised had already run out (we were there after the lunch crowd had gone) but they had another equally appetizing one in its place. Hubby had rum and tea and I had coffee and we both... More
