Visited here for lunch whilst having a day out in Grasmere. Very clean, nice decor, good sized tables and plenty of room. Very good service and lovely meal. My husband had Spaghetti Bolognese which he said was very tasty, and I had Chicken and Chorizo Kebab with salad which was delicious. The service was excellent and the price very reasonable... More

While traveling with a tour group, we stopped in Grasmere for some lunch and shopping. We chose this restaurant for its location in the main street and for the number of people sitting at outside tables. The service was friendly and fast. We each ordered different sandwiches and an order of fries and a latte and cappuccino. The sandwiches were... More

We visit the Lakes each year and stay in Grasmere and on the day you arrive you just need to get food were you can relax and unwind without it being in a really good restarant costing you a arm and leg and Potted out fills that hole just right. Potted out is not fine dinning but a place that... More

Small restaurant, bright and cheery atmosphere. Service was satisfactory. We shared a spicy pizza and boy was it spicy. We like spice but we had to cool off with an ice cream after the pizza. Of course this was really not much of a sacrifice as the ice cream was very tasty.

My wife and I went for dinner one evening whilst staying in Grasmere. The menu was interesting and the food was good, well presented and the staff attentive and friendly. It was also quite reasonably priced.

Lovely place for lunch or evening meal. Staff are very friendly and provide great service. Love eating/drinking here and watching the world go by. Dog friendly outside. We will be back soon.

This was our second visit and just as good as the first in 2013. On this holiday, we dined there twice. It's cosy, modern and very clean and the staff are very friendly and attentive. It's not cheap but that's to be expected in this part of the world. As a vegetarian, the two choices are less than inspiring, and... More

We ate here both nights. A busy little place with good food and lovely staff. My husband had a pizza so good that we returned a second time. I ate 2 different pasta dishes and we weren't disappointed. We shared a sticky toffee pudding both nights and as they had run out of vanilla ice cream had it with peanut... More

Will make this one short and sweet. Have walked passed the Potted Out front door many times but was so glad I didn't when I found myself in Grasmere for the day with my daughter yesterday. M Attentive service, chilled Sauvignon in tall-stemmed balloon glasses, perfectly cooked steak and STP (sticky toffee pudd) to die for. What's not to love?... More
