Having been to The Fish hotel recently, and seen that Dormy House was on the same estate, thought I'd try out The Potting Shed for lunch. Was driving, but the wine list was decent and enough of interest by the glass. Starter of warm scotch egg was good and really excellent warm bread.
Both mains (18-hour slow-cooked pork belly and lamb belly/rump) were fantastic. Cooking of this standard just demonstrates that food doesn't have to be 'fancy' if it is thought out and well executed. Everything on the plate had a purpose and added balance, with each element adding something.
The cooking of the meat was excellent, possibly the best pork belly I've had and the potatoes (mash, rosti and chips!) were full of flavour. Little touches really lifted the food,like the deep fried anchovies and crackling, with a mini-pot of gravy.
Too full for pudding, but definitely planning on going back for the Sunday lunch!
