“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We visited the Pot Kiln on Saturday 10th July with our son and daughter in law, it was my birthday treat albeit a belated one Our son and daughter in law have frequented this wonderful venue a few times, for us it was a first and will not be the last.
An idyllic setting tucked away in wonderful countryside, a summers evening and food to die for.
As a starter the pigeon was spot on and the deer as a main with wonderful mash a true delight. Puddings( I had the chocolate pudding with ice cream, raspberries and salted almonds, sounds heavy but it was very light) and cheese rounded off a perfect meal, you will not be disappointed, service was good and atmosphere welcoming.

“A lovely spot for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I have only ever eaten from the bar menu, but nevertheless I really enjoy the Pot Kiln. It has become a staple choice whenever people come to visit.

Relaxing and quaint, you won't be disappointed.

Heartily recommend the venison scotch egg.

“Recommended 5/5”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Celebrated our anniversary by having a "light lunch" at the Pot Kiln. We chose from the set menu and were amazed at the diversity of tastes in the three courses. Although they may seem small portions, believe me, I couldn't eat another morsel. The presentation was fantastic and did justice to the food, superbly prepared and served. So pleased to discover this gem of a setting with the most delicious food. Service was excellent. Well done, thank you and compliments to the chef and staff!!!

“Well worth detouring for excellent food in bucolic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I had heard good reports about this restaurant, off the beaten track but well worth the drive. About 30 mins from Reading, the last couple or turns along village lanes can be challenging but a quick call and Jamie gave easy directions. Service was friendly and enthusiastic and the food was full of flavour and well presented. A starter of gravlax was fresh and crisp, followed by an amazing lamb with fondant potato and minted peas and asparagus. Chocolate pudding with ice cream, raspberries and salted almonds was surprisingly light but still decadent. Where else can you enjoy this standard of food looking out onto rolling hills with ponies wandering into view just beyond the window? Amazing

“Fourth Visit - really love it here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I keep coming back and each time it great - which is not something that happens with every restaurant. We had venison between two and it was lovely. I love the way that they use chicken of the woods and wild garlic. I just really like it here. I bring friends along, having built up the idea of a really good meal to them, and thankfully it never disappoints.
