“Not Great.”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Called in for cream tea, the tea was fine, the scones were microwaved to within an inch of cremation. Really nasty and a strange orange colour! The menu generally seemed pricey, next time will continue into Langport itself. We had also tried to have a snack here once before and as we were within 30mins of its very early closing time, were made to feel quite unwelcome. We left without eating on that occasion.

“A real gem!”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Have driven by many times, but on this wet, cold, miserable day, decided to go in to warm up! What a little gem of a place.
I had two boys with me (age 9); they were made very welcome too.
The owner couldn't have been more helpful or friendly.
The food and drinks were reasonably priced.
You really get the feeling of a relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of room, and a choice of tables&chairs or sofa to sit on - a great place to meet up with friends.
I'll definitely be going back!
Thank you Potting Shed.

“Fantastic soup”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

On a cold wet day what more could you ask for than a steaming bowl of delicious soup? The mushroom soup was amazing, packed with flavour and served with a wonderful soft roll. The cakes all look great, but the highlight is a homemade fruit scone served with jam and cream. Food is nicely presented and good value for money. A great place to meet friends and relax. Small items for sale make it very interesting.

“Dreadful!”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Stopped in whilst travelling down to the west country. The signage was appealing but the food was disappointing to say the least. We had soup which was lukewarm and tasteless and decided not to chance the cakes which were overpriced. Will definitely find an alternative next time.
