Potters Steakhouse & Bar
Mediterranean and Steakhouse
Mytchett. Situated just ten minutes from Farnborough, it’s a great destination
for diners looking for tasty food and a relaxing view.
Make the most of the restaurant’s position and sit outside on the veranda, or
head inside and appreciate the spacious restaurant. It was refurbished in 2016,
redesigned with attractive, metallic-coloured seating, burgundy accents and
‘...a great destination...’
From our comfortable seats inside, we could hear sounds of laughter, glasses
clinking, ducks quacking and occasional cheering for the football game that
was being shown in the bar. Our attention soon turned from appreciating the
relaxing ambience to the mouth-watering menu. It’s comprehensive, meaning
there’s plenty of choice for all appetites and dietary requirements. We began
with seafood; Atlantic pan-fried prawns for me, and salmon atop avocado and
rocket for my partner. Both dishes were perfectly executed and we devoured
every bite. To follow, we opted for fillet and T-bone steaks. Both were cooked
exactly to order – the chefs here clearly know what they’re doing. For those
who’d prefer something other than steak, Potters also offers salads, burgers and
the likes of pan-fried sea bass, braised pork belly with bubble and squeak, and
grilled chicken and couscous. Vegetarians needn’t worry about missing out, as
the menu has a dedication meat-free section where you’ll find options including
garlic mushroom and baby spinach risotto, and vegetable shepherd’s pie. We
couldn’t resist finishing on a sweet note, so I opted for traditional apple pie with
cream. My partner was very tempted by the cheeseboard, but eventually decided
upon sticky toffee pudding, which she thoroughly enjoyed.
The evening sunshine poured through the floor-to-ceiling windows while we ate,
and the surrounding tables of large families and couples created a lively buzz.
As the sun set and the evening began to darken, twinkling green lights sprang
to life around the lake, highlighting the trees and the sleeping geese. It was a
charming end to a delicious meal.
