“Excellent. Well worth a visit.”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Whether it's a steak, burger or carvery the food here is excellent...decent, handmade and plentiful. No conveyor-belt microwaved rubbish here! The staff are attentive, friendly and nothing is too much trouble, the prices are very reasonable and the beer is excellent! I wish we lived closer to this gem of a pub as it would definitely become our local. WELL worth a visit.

Went to the spode cottage for a Sunday carvery. The food was fantastic, management and staff was very friendly. Food was piping hot and the beer was cold - excellent. 5star

“Weird Gravy.”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

I have had the Sunday Carvery here twice, and I don't know what they do to the Gravy but it is very peppery. It spoils the rest of the meal. Please just make normal gravy!

weird gravy lol lol. we use real boullioin and real meat juices and a gallon of ale... so not weird in my opinion.. perhaps you like gravy granules with gravy browning like 90% of the competition.
we get so many compliments about our carvery we will continue in the same vein. and as far as i am aware there is no extra pepper in the gravy ? the cracked black pepper is used to season the veg
we all have different tastes and thanks for sharing yours. hope you go on to write more reviews

“Great night”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

First time at the Spode Cottage, pleasant welcoming staff, lovely spacious restaurant, we ordered a steak meal which was cooked to perfection, with more than generous helpings of onion rings and chips. It's been a while since I felt so full after a meal, but we were both full to bursting and a very reasonable prices. There was also a tribute act on that night and it really topped the night off. We would recommend it to everyone.
