Popped in for Sunday Lunch, we had not booked and were lucky to get a table. Nice menu selection, we went old school and chose Roast Beef and it was very nice.

Have been for lunch which was good. Thought we'd go for dinner on a Sunday as website says open to 9.00 pm - but this info isn't correct - they close early (hrs changed weeks ago. Apparently its not proving easy to change the website?!?!

From telephoning to make a reservation throughout the service at Potarch was excellent. The girls were lovely and friendly with nothing being too much bother for them. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. The day we visited was very rainy and we probably spent longer over coffee than we should have but did not feel rushed to leave. I am looking forward to taking friends who have not visited Potarch for lunch very soon

Met a friend for lunch. Had reserved table. Arrived. Sat for ages at table till someone came and offered us a drink. Not as if the place was busy - there were 10 people and 2 of us. Drink came. Eventually a menu each arrived. Took ages till they took our order. Food arrived quite promptly. It was delicious (even though there is a very limited choice if you don't want a full main course). Hot and well presented. Plenty of food for the money. But oh dear me. Took ages. No one came over to ask if everything was okay. Didn't wait for coffee. Paying the bill was thankfully quick. Nice place. Lovely setting. Service - disappointing. Won't rush back.

Haven't been for years & decided today to give it a go after good reviews generally. Noticed they had a bar outside to tie up your horse or leave your bike on, a party of about 8 cyclists there having a fine top up. Good breakfast options til 12, limited but good menu choices and it didn't seem to be a problem if you just wanted a scone & a cuppa either. Staff all pleasant, free wifi & good play area outside for kids with karts & diggers etc. Walked over to riverside after & big common opposite to let the dog run too. Nice to see a great location have a nice place to dine now.
