Description
The Potager is an ideal place to entertain and enjoy a relaxed meal, or special occasion. A Characterful oaked beamed restaurant with stunning views over the countryside. The Potager has been awarded with AA 2 Rosettes for food excellence for 8 years running and will soon be using fresh and organic ingredients from its own garden. Open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. The Potager is ideal for smaller, private functions of up to 22 people in the Conservatory and Garden room, or larger functions of up to 110 people. Enjoy a 2-course lunch from our Set Menu for just £15, Mon-Sat. Sunday lunch can be enjoyed with all the family in a relaxed setting accompanied by a glass or two of our carefully selected wines from all over the world. There are some great South African wines on the list, a personal touch of the proprietors. The bar at the Potager is great for drinks in the summer or after a hard days work. Pop in with your friends or colleagues and relax.
