The Potting Shed at Dorset Square Hotel

Squaremeal Review of The Potting Shed at Dorset Square Hotel ?

Now that the Dorset Square Hotel has returned to the Firmdale fold, The Potting Shed restaurant has once more put down roots in its sky-lit basement. True to the name, expect terracotta pots, garden ornaments and thick oak tables, smartened up with of-the-moment brasserie furnishings. Pictures of cricketers reference Dorset Square’s heritage as the original site of Lord’s Cricket Ground, while the menu compensates for any lack of surprises with bills that are extremely modest for Marylebone. Braised leek hearts with shellfish and a leek broth delights at £8.75, venison cottage pie is a snip at £18.50, and puds such as beetroot and chocolate cake with sour cherries and Chantilly crème fraîche or buttermilk pannacotta are even better value at £6. Complimentary post-meal sorbets are another generous touch. Service is engaging and there’s a complete lack of pretence about the whole place.

Have visited The Potting Shed several times and it is consistently of a high standard, in both food and service. Fairly traditional menu is strong on flavour and while not cheap, offers reasonably good value.

When I booked this, I had no idea that I walked past it every day on my way to work! Three ladies going out for an evening meal, we had a wonderful time, starting with sublime cocktails, and then working our way though 3 courses and a great bottle of wine. The ambience is very pleasant, staff very friendly and the quality of the food very high. Will definitely be going again.

    We were greeted at the restaurant by a friendly member of staff, and were shown to the bar where we enjoyed some pre-dinner cocktails. The cocktail list includes the signature cocktails from the other Firmdale hotel bars, and we were excited to try a couple.

    The cocktails we chose included the Passion and Ginger Caiprinha from the Covent Garden Hotel and the Charlotte Street Hotel’s take...
