The perfect regular!

We booked at short notice after work one Friday evening and got the last table (in the bar) at 6:30pm. Really enjoyable. It epitomises the best of modern english pubs - a gentle buzz of conversation from a mix of locals and visitors of all ages topped off by excellent food and service. The food... read more

We phoned to book a table last minute & staff managed to juggle a couple of tables to accommodate us. When we arrived we were made welcome & able to have a drink in the bar before being taken to our table. We were in a room off the main bar - the whole place is really nicely decorated &... More

Much improved pub since our last visit about 3 years ago. Has an extensive menu with some of the dishes being excellent and others not. Some of the roasts were on the bloody side for us but would suit other people perfectly. The trout gravadlax was excellent but the cheese selection was a big disappointment. Good atmosphere around the pub.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant! We're always willing to cook our meat for longer for those that wish, so next time please don't hesitate to ask! It's great to read that you enjoyed your starter, but disappointing to read that you weren't fond of the cheeses on offer. We try to rotate our offering regularly,... More

I love this place. Located right in the centre of Potton, overlooking the quaint market square. This pub/hotel/restaurant has oodles of atmosphere, with lots of comfy seating, a real fire, good coffee and a great selection of real ales that change regularly. Dogs are welcome in the bar and my four-legged friend especially loves to settle in from of the... More

Thank you for all of your compliments! We never get fed up with being told we're doing a good job, much like your four-legged friend we appreciate the positive attention! If you visit soon, you can see that we've made our menus more affordable by simplifying some dishes allowing us to retain the quality whilst getting the prices down. Hopefully... More

The staff there as also very friendly and polite, Belle is always there to greet you with a smile as does bar tender Ashleah who is always bubbly and there with a warm welcome.

My partner and I have been here twice, once for mid-week dinner and the other Sunday lunch. Both times we were greeted with a warm welcome and friendly service. The staff are delightful and the beer, cider and wine is very tasteful! The food both times were very tasty and above average for your normal country dining experience. We will... More

I was a little apprehensive about having my birthday meal here as I'd been warned about the price and the portion sizes. However, I have to say that my partner and I were completely stuffed after our 3 courses...really we could have managed without the dessert but the menu seemed to contain all our favourites! It was pricey but nothing... More

Picked out this restaurant for New Years Eve as it is local, there was live music and had good reviews. However we all thought the meal was very overpriced and small portions. We had decided on staying there to celebrate the New Year but after we had had two courses, we asked if we could have a rest and were... More

We recently moved to Potton, and we have been checking out all the local places. The Coach house is walking distance. I went to lunch here with my husband and step-son just before Christmas. We were not dissapointed at all. The staff are all very sharp, and they are in good appearance and dress. This a very up to date... More

first impressions were good, nice bar and good service. Restaurant disappointing with no atmosphere, would have preferred to stay in bar. Resembled boarding school dining hall. Not cheap and food was bland. Wouldn't rush back for a meal. A pub trying to hard!
