Third visit. Great good and service

This is our third visit to the Golden Pot. The food is great, very large portions. Great service. We were a large group of 14 and we'll catered for.

Having been dismayed by the closure of the Royal Oak at Lasham (not too long to reopen I hope), it was time for an alternate and the Golden Pot beckoned. There was a pleasant welcome from the landlady and an offer to sit in either the bar or the restaurant, both of which seemed ok. The restaurant artwork (a fairly... More

Met my former boss and his wife for our annual meet up, and as this pub was local to them, and one I hadn't visited previously, we thought we'd try it out. The pub is an established feature being located at what I and I suspect many others refer to as 'The Golden Pot Crossroads. Inside there was what was... More

We have been there three times now and have had wonderful food and friendly service on all three occasions. Excellent value for money.

Welcome was very warm by the landlady. Food was very good and at a good price. Well worth a visit. We have been for lunch and dinner we will be going back again.

A reasonable family Sunday lunch. Roasts large and gravy good. Good value at about £15. Steak was overcooked on too low a heat so a bit grey but with a nice sauce. Rather expensive for the steak as was. BBQ chargrilled chicken very good value and tasty. Deserts nice - a good crumble, brioche bread and butter pudding. Only issue... More

Great meal tonight. Brie was fabulous, and steak melted in the mouth. Ice cream a bit ordinary, and only doom bar but really nice restaurant and staff

Found this little gem via trip advisor. Didn't realise how local it was to us until we arrived and worked out where we were. Exceeded our expectations in terms of decor and quality of food. Most importantly the service was amazing. All staff were warming and friendly and very very helpful. 12.5% service was added the final bill which I... More

I would recommend this place without question. My roast was really nice and a decent portion. Staff were friendly and didn't interrupt us as they do at many places, although they kindly asked whether our food was alright (just the once!). I would definitely come again and hopefully bring some friends next time, rather than a quick meal and business... More

We just had Sunday roasts at the Golden Pot and I for one am full to bursting!! Before anyone jumps in and says 'You didn't have to eat it all', I have to say I did - what to leave behind? The beef? No! The roast potatoes? No! The vegetables? Defiantly not! So why did I force myself to order... More
