This was a lunch stop and Potted Out seems to be a popular choice as it was nicely filled. We ordered a soup of the day (potato and leek) with ciabatta and a pasta with mushrooms, an egg and parmesan cheese tossed in olive oil. The food was very comforting and delicious. The portions were good for 2 girls.

Visited early October with a group of 10. Had no problem booking such a large party - staff were very friendly and helpful (even organised a hot pudding when we visited a second time). Food was excellent and each dish was well presented. A special mention for Michael who both looked after us and 'entertained' us during the evening. I would highly recommend a visit.

I stopped by here during the August bank holiday weekend. I asked the waiter about getting a snack because I had to keep to a schedule and was refused service, being told that they don't serve food anymore. Said waiter was standing next to a big sign on the pavement saying "we are now open 11 to 8:30 serving food all day" and this was at 4:30. He then proceeded to seat other people and give them menus.

So I can only conclude that they don't like certain kinds of people, of which I am one.
