We were in the area for a weekend break and in a conversation the name of the Pottting Shed came up ! We booked online Saturday morning for a table that night at 7pm. The whole process took less than 2 minutes. We arrived about 20 mins early, greeted by by several members of staff, the decor of the restaurant... More

This was our first visit for a meal, as we had stopped previously when passing for a drink and thought it looked a lovely place to try the food. I had the Prawn, fennel & tarragon samosa, watercress & mixed peppers salad, saffron dip to start – the samosa was a mush of bland mixture in the middle and dripping... More

Good quality food and wine if a bit cheeky on some prices! Cheery staff and great efforts to make the ambience a little different - mostly successful

This is a jewel of a pub/restaurant, everything you could ask for, for a start a great selection of proper ale, if your not an ale bod then they have premium lagers, and of course an eclectic collection of wines to choose from Ah yes then the food, again great choice, great presentation, and it all tastes YUMMIE There always...

A very welcoming feel to the pub, comfy and friendly, attentive service. Food is excellent, I've had lunch and dinners here, Rib Eye steak and fish and chips are particularly good. A good selection of cocktails and real ales with guest appearances. Decent garden for when weather permits. Go and be spoilt.

Visited the Potting Shed en route to Highgrove Garden. We had lunch which was delicious and on a par with any other top restaurant we have visited. A very quirky place with a shabby chic appeal, second hand up-cycled furniture, a crazy mix of pictures and light fittings. Local beers and one home brewed were on offer. Staff are very... More

We stopped here on the way back from a morning trip to Bristol and enjoyed great pub food sitting on the lawn. We were greeted warmly by the staff and given good recommendations re. beer. My burger was extremely good, as were the triple fried chips, and my husband's lamb was also excellent. Will definitely revisit if we get the... More

This is far better than a mere 'gastropub' (horrid word) - you'd have to go a long way to find a more attractive pub plus first-class restaurant in a scenic Cotswold village (albeit on the sometimes noisy A429). On a warm summer evening, we sat out on the large lawn where there are apple trees which small children climb while... More

I stumbled across this pub just by chance and was totally blown away by the decor. First impressions count! I was greeted with a smile by a member of staff at the bar and was served straight away. There was plenty of choice not only from the drinks menu but also the food menu. I put my order in and... More

A disappointing return to what is a fantastic country pub in a great setting. The service was very poor throughout the meal - staff are pleasant enough but are not switched on to a smooth effective and effortless service. Sadly, we agreed that some of our food was lacking in taste and seasoning - bland in parts and not particularly... More
