We’re a good pub with well kept ales and tempting wines. We’re a restaurant serving fresh, high quality, local food. We’re a coffee house with home made cakes. We’re somewhere to enjoy a fabulous Sunday lunch. We’re a great venue for a private function. We’re a comfortable hotel. And, we’re here because we like it. We hope you like it too.

Surpassed themselves

We frequently visit The Coach House and always enjoy their superb food. However, this Sunday they simply surpassed themselves with an exquisite lunch. We had beef, pork and the wild mushroom and chestnut tart. The roasties were so crispy. The servings were large and value for money excellent.

Summary: quality food, quite pricey and variable service. Might go again but won't be a regular haunt (nearly 4 out of 5) Stopped for Friday lunch without a booking. Bar was full but restaurant was nearly empty so we easily got a table. Service started pretty efficiently and order was taken reasonably quickly but without any pressure. Menu has reasonable...

Well located, pleasant decor and furnishings, enthusiastic customer-facing staff and a pleasingly simple menu. Good beer too. This would be an excellent place for lunch if the food matched the surroundings. Our meals were well presented but bland and the portions small for the price. 5 chips in a bowl does not constitute a portion, especially when it was trying... More

We have been here several times, but not for the last 6 months or so, I received and e-mail offer for money off, so we thought we'd go back. The food is excellent, very well presented in a Mastercheffy way, and really tasty. But it is ridiculously overpriced even though the food is excellent, but what will ensure I don't... More

Went to the Coach House for my birthday with my wife. Had been before but not for a couple of years. Was quiet at the time we went so got a table easily for 6pm (when the restuarant opened). Service was ok. Some dishes were expensive (steaks in particular) but others resonable. I had rib eye steak which i enjoyed... More

Three generations of our family visited for a lunch today having never visited before and not really knowing what to expect - it certainly will not be our last visit. The location in central Potton is easy to find and the restaurant was beautifully furnished and comfortable Service was friendly and prompt. We all ordered different dishes and all could... More

This is our first visit to the Coach House - it is a busy friendly pub, recently refurbished giving it the relaxed style where friends and family can meet for a fairly quiet (bare floorboards) drink, coffee or meal- as we were not very hungry we had a couple of starters. My husband chose the mussels and I had the... More

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 is contemporary but not fussy... 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
