Four of us had a meal here in the evening and the food was fine. As others have stated, the chips are particularly good . There were two waitresses, one of whom was smiley and pleasant, the second however was quite abrupt and certainly wouldn't encourage me to return to this restaurant. There are lots of lovely places to eat... More

Stopped here for a few drinks in the sunshine at the end of the day. Prompt service. Another family came by wishing to sit inside & were told they couldn't, as they weren't planning to dine!

My mother and I had lunch here on our own. We broke away from our tour group to avoid a long walk. Potted Out is located near the coach park. I saw that there were quite a few diners so we decided to try it. It was yummy. I had a chicken and bacon sandwich with salad, and my mom... More

On arrival in Grasmere for a 2 night stay we just wanted something light to eat & some wine. The antipasti fitted the bill with a generous selection & quantity of items served with good bread. We returned for a meal on the second evening as we had enjoyed the first evening's food & we wanted to try the main... More

We ate here the two evenings we were in Grasmere. Part of the reason was that many of the places in town closed by the time we were ready for dinner (about 6:30). The food was excellent and the wait staff very friendly and helpful. There is a nice patio for dining when it is warm enough. We would surely... More

Went to this cafe for a drink and cake on 15/07/2014 at lunch. Tried to go inside the cafe to see the specials board and was approached by a European waitress with a horrible attitude that told me I was not allowed to go inside, I had to sit down and wait to have my order taken! I replied that... More

Visited this place on a hot summers day and it was busy but we managed to get a table outside. Great choice of cakes and we had lemon cake and chocolate brownie. Bit of a queue for toilet though.

I had several good meals at this cafe. Lunches (4.5) tended to be better than dinner (3.5). The food was overall good. I particularly enjoyed the gnocchi carbonara. The staff were absolutely lovely, helpful and friendly. Their internationalism added wonderfully to the relaxed atmosphere. I definitely recommend the cafe for frequent lunches, if you are staying in Grasmere or visiting.... More

We ate here on both nights of our weekend trip as we liked it so much the first night. The sun was shining and we sat outside we could have been in Spain! Great choice of foods for vegetarians too. Friendly staff, great location, if you want to eat out in Grasmere you shout try Potted out!
