Coffee and petit fours included. By way of an amuse-gueule, we were given a little schooner of tomato consomme with... More

Had delightful lunch with my wife here last Saturday. We were blown away by the quality of the cooking for the price ... £25.50 for 3 courses, inclusive of coffee/tea and petit fours. The experience is like being at the home of some friends who are doing the cooking and waiting for you. My wife enjoyed it so much she... More

We had not been at La Potiniere for 2/3 years but were reminded of what we had been missing, We had a first class lunch - all courses were simple but full of great flavours. The meal was excellent value. Service and atmosphere was super and we will return soon for lunch or dinner.

Have been there a few times and Keith always makes us welcome. Took my Dad for a special boys evening out meal. Food was faultless and always with an interesting twist. Only one sitting per evening so you never feel rushed. Just go relax and enjoy the journey. Need to book way in advance though.

We did and the wait was really worthwhile The greeting was very... More
