From the outside this may look like a quiet village inn, but step through the pretty white doors to reveal a treasure trove of quirk and vintage. Open fireplaces and kilim sofas fat with cushions make you feel at home, while door handles fashioned from trowels, hand pumps from fork handles and old butchers' block tables will have you smiling. Eat in the big airy dining room with mix 'n' match antiques, or in one of the cosy corners around the bar. The food is exuberantly British, from dressed Cornish crab on sourdough to ribeye steaks with rich béarnaise. Two acres and an apple orchard at the back have been turned into an organic vegetable patch, while local ales, and dog treats on the bar reflect the focus on real-pub values and friendliness. There's an excellent children's menu and puds to warm your heart; try the egg custard tart with clove honey.

Guest feedback
"We had a wonderful evening at the Potting Shed. It was cosy and welcoming on an autumnal evening, and the food was just delicious! We had the cheese soufflé (wow!) and burrata for starters, and then my husband had a burger which he was very happy with, I had the lamb shoulder with cassoulet, so tasty and a generous portion! We also managed to fit in a sticky toffee pudding to share! We had a friendly waitress who gave some great recommendations. And lovely to wander across the road back to the Rectory Hotel afterwards. Thank you Sawdays for pointing us to these two places, both absolute gems! "
