A welcoming atmosphere and good food. Well presented, tasty starter and main course but the deserts were outstanding! Worth a visit.

This is a quaint little cafe in the charming village of Grasmere. The food was very good and it was served in a timely manner. The atmosphere is very comfortable. The server didn't come across as too cheerful, nor was he rude. This would be the only comment I could make that is even remotely non-positive. I would definitely enjoy... More

First time staying in Grasmere and was unsure where to eat....but so glad we chose Potted Out. The staff are friendly and welcoming the establishment is very clean and the choice of drinks is good....but the food is by far some of the best I have sampled. There is a limited choice compared to other cafés / restaurants but I... More

Excellent service and good lunchtime food at this little cafe. Nice mix of snacks and small meals, coped well with a noisy baby! Maybe a little overpriced, but lovely location.

Located in Grasmere village this restaurant is not very big but the food is very nice. A fairly small menu but good food. The deserts are huge, we shared one between two and both had plenty. The staff are very good.

Been here a few times now for coffees, lunch and dinner and each time it's great. The heaters outside and blankets are a great touch. Good tasty food and plenty of it, with great service too!

We were up in the Lakes for a simple weekend enjoying the outdoors on a budget. Most of the restaurants in Grasmere either serve pub grub or are fairly expensive restaurants... The Potted Out cafe was a very good compromise. The menu isn't very large but has a good mix and a proportionally large choice for vegetarians. All the food... More

Stopped for an evening meal here, menu was fairly simple but the food was very good and so was the service. Good value for money too and in a lovely location.

Generally good food, good service, pleasant enough place. Road a bit busy but can't be helped. Marginally more expensive than you'd expect perhaps, but can't really complain.

We popped in for a light lunch while visiting grasmere and thought it was lovely. There was a minor mishap initially with a dirty glass which was handled superbly.... the owner was actually quite upset it had slipped through and couldn't be more apologetic. Food was fresh, tasty and well presented. Service was excellent and we would definitely eat lunch... More
