We returned to this interesting pub after about 20 years as we had good reports about the latest owners. We booked, & found the staff most helpful & obliging. The menu is comprehensive and the prices reasonable. First, the local beers were well kept & served well. We both had the soup, (not shown on the web menu) which was... More

As I was working in the area for a couple of months, I decided to stop at this restaurant /pub because there was plenty of parking at the rear, for my motorhome. Walking into the pub side, I asked for a table, and I was quietly surprised to be directed to a table in a very respectable restaurant area. However,... More

Sunday evening when some local restaurants were closed the Golden Pot was open and was most welcoming. From the moment we arrived and were shown a table to when we left the service was very friendly and helpful. The menu was varied enough for most tastes but not overwhelming. Some good down-to-earth dishes included. The food we had was totally... More

My fiancé and I decided to meet some friends for Sunday Lunch. I phoned early on the Sunday morning and they were able to accommodate us which i really appreciated. We all ordered a roast dinner and it was amazing. A lovely big plate of perfectly cooked food arrived in a timely manner. It was so delicious we all cleared... More

Google local pubs and Golden Pot had good reviews. Went along with family and we were not disappointed. Excellent choice for food. Superb quality and very quick service. Not cheapest pub to eat in, but if you want quality home cooked food, then definitely give them a go!

Had a lovely meal at this gastropub. Not part of a chain, meaning that the menu is interesting. Wine good value. Service was good. Nice decor. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

This was the second time we have hired the skittle alley and had the Golden Pot's fantastic BBQ for our family gathering of 34+ people. The staff were really friendly and welcoming. The service was impeccable and nothing was too much trouble. The food was plentiful and everyone commented on how enjoyable it was. The children were kept occupied in... More

I would recommend this venue for the skittle alley. It's quite small but we liked that as it made it cost and full of atmosphere. We chose the 3 main meal option at £13.95 per head. The food was lovely, we chose chilli, veg curry and beef bog. The staff are really helpful and kept checking on us to see... More
