The place was full today, and it's February. What must it be like in summer! Adequate menu, friendly staff, quick service. Nice soup. And not our first time here.

Popped in here after a wet walk around the lake, the staff were lovely, as was the soup! Perfect dish to help warm you up when cold and damp.

Love this place normally as it offers great cakes, snacks and more substantial meals so was very surprised and disappointed to find it not open on Friday early evening during a recent few days break in Grasmere at February half term when there were plenty of families, couples and others visiting the village. Had to go into Ambleside to visit... More

This a very nice quaint tea room who provide a good selection of food possibly on the dearer side but the massive scone is well worth a go

They never had any scones left at 1:30PM??? Very disappointing considering it was still lunchtime and not even in the height of tourist season. The assistant was quite miserable (in our opinion) and seemed to be unphased when we complained. We most likely won't pop in there again.

We had very nice lunch here after a stroll around Grasmere. The owner was friendly and welcoming and the food was exactly what we needed. Potted Out has a good selection of light bites and main meals but we would recommend the lentil soup, cheese panini and fresh mint tea.

We called in here for lunch on Wednesday 25th January, most of the eating places in Grasmere were closed. We sat at a table near the window and looked through the menu, it only took a few minutes to decide what we wanted. We then sat for at least ten minutes as the two girls serving chatted and cleared away... More
