We had a lovely meal with many small attentions to details that warmed our hearts even despite the fact that the staff were all uncertain about their futures due to the current situation. We wish them all the very best of luck with the next weeks and will certainly plan to return and celebrate whenever the restrictions are all lifted.

The Potting Shed - set 3 course menu

Lovely meal at The Potting Shed, Dorset Square. Second visit and again enjoyed our food.

Suggested improvements - 4 choices per course on the set menu please. Dessert in particular - would have liked a chocolate option.

Service was attentive and prompt. No fuss over changing to 2 people from a 3 person reservation. Great place to meet up with friends in a casual, yet formal setting.

Service was pretty patchy, waited 30 mins for a pot of tea and then the wrong one arrived. Food came long before hot drinks and brunch was small portions for the price - it’s very much a hotel restaurant and it’s well presented, but it fell short of expectations given the price.

I have reviewed this restaurant many times and must make a similar comment as previously. Every thing about this place is good. It's convenient for me as I live around the corner, the staff are great, it's comfortable, good wine list, but oh the food! It's not that it's poor but consistently indifferent! As If no one in the kitchen is really trying or cares, given the prices being charged! Sorry I love the Potting Shed but not their food!

Small quirky restaurant with very pleasant staff. Service was excellent. Food ordinary but ok. Quite expensive for what we had.service charge at 12.5% was well earned. Would certainly go back but choose different item from menu.

Used to go here 20+ years ago when me and my friends worked nearby. It was a favourite. Thought we would revisit our old haunt and it didn't disappoint. Such a cute place. Great staff. Good menu choices. Chilled atmosphere. Even though we originally had the table for 2.5 hours we stayed much longer and then we were offered to move to a table at the bar . Will definitely go again and highly recommened it.

It’s a great venue to catch up with people for a coffee/drink or to do some work. Also lovely small restaurant with good food for a lunch or dinner. It’s a “go to” venue for me when local to Marylebone station. There are some great venues a little walk away in Marylebone High Street or Marylebone Lane, but this is closer to the station. Service is good if a little cold sometimes, but that’s fine. The test of any good venue is the cleanliness and this is superlative. Very clean and maintained toilets every time I’ve been.

Very empty restaurant for a Saturday night. The restaurant was freezing and it took several requests for the a/c to be turned down. Food was average no more. No atmosphere. Very expensive for what we had. Would not return

Midweek meal meeting friends. Had a lovely cocktail in the cosy bar before enjoying a great dinner. Not inexpensive but worth it as the food was good quality. Service was good.

Food was ok not great. I had the Veal Escalope- one of the more expensive items on the menu- the portion was huge but the meat was chewy and the breadcrumb coating was too dense. Service was slow even though the restaurant wasn’t overly busy.

Very disappointed have been many times in the past was always good service and food unfortunately this time was a let down mains were brought out to us whilst we were still eating our stater they took them back to kitchen but clearly left them on side as when they were brought back out food was cold they reheated (supposedly) brought out again but food was still cold ...duty manager seemed quite indifferent added to which even if it hadn’t been cold quite frankly was unappetising..definitely gone down hill which would explain why it wasn’t very busy compared to usual Thursday night. Won’t go there again. Is now very overpriced for what you get.

The restaurant is gorgeous and food was faultless and fab! There was one waitress who banged each plate down on the table! Unfortunately there was a guitarist playing and whilst it was beautiful, my friends and I had met for a long overdue catch up and found ourselves struggling to hear over her! My recommendation would be to check where you’re sitting at the time of booking so you can ask to be seated away from the music.

It was early so the restaurant was empty. However, the service and food were very good. The next morning we had breakfast and the restaurant was full. Again, the service and food were very good.
