Lovely food

Popped in for an evening meal and was surprised to find such a little gem with very nice food! Could do with a larger beer selection - but that is just for my taste!

Having done a five hour walk (Easedale Tarn and around Grasmere Lake), my friends and I were in desperate need of a drink and some refreshments. As we had a coffee and a cake here four years ago, on our previous visit to Grasmere and really loved the location by the river in particular, we decided to sit outside. We... More

This was our second visit after being taken there last by my brother inlaw, we took our friends for an evening meal. The service was faultless and the food was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend eating here.

Walking from Rydal to Grasmere last weekend we were in need of a good cup of tea and a sugar boost to continue back to Rydal. The service was impeccable, nothing was too much trouble and the tea and the Tiffin slice (which was enough for two) which was very resonably priced, was throughly enjoyed.

Have eaten at the Potted Out many times. On this visit we have had 2 lunches & an evening meal & everytime it never fails to deliver. The staff & the service are excellent. Good choice of menu & some reasonable priced wine. Would highly recommend it.
