Good food but not cheap

The food was decent enough but expensive mains for a pub. The bread we were served was stale and impossible to spread the hard butter onto. Oil and Balsamic would be more appropriate for a pub trying to be more of a high end restaurant. Decoration, service and ambience was good. We visited on a... read more

What is it about the Cotswold and specifically the area around Tetbury and Cirencester that means you are going to be ripped off and over charged at nearly every pub you visit? £16 for a nice but not exceptional Sunday roast and no Sunday main course dishes below £14 (fish and chips). And then service charge is expected on top... More

In fairness, it was a very busy Easter Sunday lunch, but after hearing such amazingly good things about the Potting Shed, we simply expected to be wowed. The place is just beautiful. Very quirky. Service was fine and friendly. We had one lamb, one pork and one hake. The hake seriously was the tiniest bit of fish ever. Well hidden... More

A little disappointed in our lunch at the Potting Shed yesterday as it had specifically been recommended to us.The food was perfectly acceptable but the service was not great, not easy to get attention of staff or to get the bill. In fairness, it was a very busy Easter Sunday and it looked as if temporary staff had been drafted... More

Nice surroundings, good service and good food. My only small gripe was that the chips weren't chips. They were big chunks of potato, more akin to a roast potato. Other than that, we all enjoyed our meals, especially the desserts, which were excellent.

Meeting friends for a special meal on a Monday lunchtime is not that easy with so many places closed or only offering bar snacks. The Potting Shed at Crudwell near Malmsbury delivers, offering delightful food from what appears to be a regularly changing menu. We all enjoyed a super meal beautifully served by a friendly and attentive staff. If you... More

We had Sunday lunch today which was excellent, the staff must be congratulated for their very good service. The only draw back was the table we had (a bit crammed in) will book a different table next time. A great place for families although the dog policy needs to be reviewed, why do owners bring them in ?? Well Done... More

Once again spent a weekend at The Rectory with dinner at The Potting Shed. Fantastically knowledgable staff - they helped me choose which of the 52 Gins I wanted to try. Dinner later was excellent, I tried the pigeon which was a first - very tasty and filling. The slow cooked salmon with crab croquettes was also superb. The place... More

Sometimes I write long reviews but having delayed submitting our experience of the Potting Shed in this case I am happy to report that our Sunday lunch visit regarding food, atmosphere and staff was simply just excellent.

In cotswold on a birthday weekend had been to this pub end of summer last year ( only sat in the garden and had a sandwich). I thought as I was in the area I would go back for a double family birthday lunch. Really great place for Sunday lunch very friendly staff all willing to give friendly customer service.... More
