“Once again we have just returned from a fantastic break at Potters. The entertainment in the evening was brilliant, especially the weekend with the Syd Lawrence Orchestra. How do they keep producing such an excellent programme? If you are a lover of Big Band music I certainly recommend you book up now as I believe bookings are already filling up for next year!” - Monica_pledger

5 of 5 starsWe went to Potters for the Syd Lawrence Orchestra and enjoyed it so much we have already booked for next year. The staff were outstandingly helpful from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The food was exceptionally good in choice, volume and presentation. The entertainment was "five star plus".” - Marion B
