Very welcoming and efficient staff who greeted us with us with a smile and were very polite and chatty throughout. The service was very quick and the food was of an excellent standard. The surroundings were very relaxing and the whole package made for an excellent dining experience.

This pub restaurant punches way above its weight - great food and excellent wine-list at very reasonable prices. The young staff are efficient and helpful, all with a smile. We were a party of 8 and they fitted us in as a last-minute booking on a busy Saturday night with a lovely private table in a private room. Will certainly... More

Very welcoming on arrival, and knew that we were staying at their hotel, The Rectory. Similar quirky style of decor. Menu superb. Everything was appetising and therefore a difficult choice. We had booked another pub for our second night in the area, but on another occasion we would just book to eat here each night. Very good value and excellent... More

We had a lovely Sunday lunch here. Food was very tasty with hearty sized portions. Roast beef was served pink as stated on the menu. Good selection of local beer and some interesting cocktails. Staff were very friendly and helpful . Decor of the pub was lovely and relaxed slightly different from your usual gastro pub. The garden was pretty... More

Couple of Sundays ago had dinner there with my wife and we really enjoyed it! We had a table outside as it was a warm evening.The service was very friendly, they didn't mind changing things on the menu for us. The food was good. Is only 15 minutes away from us so we will be going back soon!

The place is nicely decorated (the decor seems to change with the seasons). The drink selection reveals a pleasant surprise for a country pub with a large collection of gins, whiskies, beers and ciders. The menu is usually entertaining and changes every month. With their unusual selection of meat, the meal becomes a special event.The staff is professional and friendly.... More

So often it is easy to be disappointed by Sunday Lunch in a pub. That was not the case at the Potting Shed. We were a party of 8, ranging in age from 18 months to 91 years and everyone was well looked after and all enjoyed the varied and interesting menu. The food was freshly cooked, imaginatively presented and... More

Had a meal with a group of friends here and really enjoyed ourselves. Had a room to ourselves on the edge of the pub. Food was good and staff put up with our giggles! Have eaten here before and the good food and service was repeated then. A brilliant option for bringing your four legged friend too. Really dog friendly.... More

Have eaten at The Potting Shed on three occasions now and each time have come away feeling disappointed. They are trying too hard to impress the `Green Wellie Brigade'. Food is too expensive, trying to be too fancy on the plate but actually doesn't live up to the flavour or food experience in my opinion that you would expect. I... More

Went here for lunch. Fantastic staff , where nothing is too much trouble. Food was excellent. I had a ribeye steak which had to be one of the best I have had. The lamb burger with Harissa was also great. Both came with triple cooked chips which were spot on. It's not fancy but delivers great food with great service... More
