Spacious, the environment is warm and welcoming, it's at the top of the town so if you need money etc the ATM machines are a short walk & with M&S right opposite you can nip in for a sandwich or a drink for the way home if you wish.

We called in on a Sunday lunchtime. The pub was almost empty. We just wanted a sandwich but they only did baguettes so we shared a ham salad one. Tasteless ham. Salad consisted of just a few leaves. Very poor. One person was having the roast which didn't look very good and was overpriced at £12.95 for chicken and £!3.95... More

Thank you Sir for your recent review. We are sorry that you weren't entirely happy with your experience with us. The Golden Girls that look after everybody, who walk through our doors work so hard to ensure that the time spent with us is enjoyable, and they would of been more than happy to increase the temperature in the restaurant...

We went late afternoon yesterday to avoid the rush. The service is always friendly and welcoming. Our food was great. The Greek meatballs and the crab cakes were tasty! Our family is always happy to eat here and Nick will always accommodate changes for the children!

The Pot is a great pub serving good food and very friendly, welcoming team. It's a great place in the summer to sit out or in the winter in front of the fire.

Have been three times more recently and this is a nice pub, does what you hope, service is good, food is cooked on site and the environment is lovely. It is ticking the boxes. Just one thing to address and that is value for money. A burger for £13 (£12.95 if being picky) sets sensational expectations which were not met.... More

Lovely friendly staff, tip top service and great grub, we had earlier left a certain pub in Well due to a very frosty landlady and stopped off here on our way home- glad we did!

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
