I visited this restaurant with my boyfriend and we both really enjoyed our meals, the service was very good and we didn't feel rushed to leave. The price was competitive with others in the village.

Early evening meal, just the two of us after a days walking. Only 4/5 tables occupied at the time we were there. Olives as a nibbles were like bullets and I reckon "cheap & nasty". I had mushroom fettuccine which was lukewarm and coagulated - I reckon it had been microwaved and definitely not freshly made. My wife had the steak which was, she advises, tasteless and very poorly cooked (ordered medium well, came medium rare so we sent back and it came back in a terrible state - microwaved??). We advised the waitress we were not happy and so we were offered a complimentary coffee to make amends!
Total bill £38 - total waste of money more like. If you must try here for some reason order pizza - surely they cant mess that up!

We visited this cafe two years ago, when mooching around Grasmere, and just had a sandwich, but enjoyed sitting in the garden. We were intrigued to see it is now a 'proper' restaurant, open for evening meals (though only serving until 8.30pm), so we thought we would try it. Although the indoor tables were all taken, we were served outside, with a patio heater overhead. My husband and I enjoyed the roast chicken on crushed new potatoes, which was gorgeous, and a whopping great pizza was happily devoured by our daughter. We instantly re-booked for the last night of our holiday, were given a table in the window and again enjoyed an excellent meal, including salmon on puy lentils - divine! All served with a smile.

The only criticism we had was that a heated discussion between the owner? manager? and one of the waitresses, regarding taking orders beyond 8.30pm, was perfectly audible across the dining room, including the couple who dared to ask for a bowl of soup at 8.35pm! We felt sorry for the poor waitress who was only trying to keep customers happy, and this rather spoilt the atmosphere.

Otherwise we thoroughly recommend 'Potted Out' and will certainly re-visit next time we are in the Lake District
