The Potters Heron is a real Hampshire landmark and a part of the local community. Bought by three friends in 2007 whose previous association with the hotel goes back in time (one of the owners had his first big job interview there (don’t ask how long ago!)) The Potters Heron is a small and friendly business with a team that are always ready to welcome you, whatever the reason for your visit.

The whole experience from start to finish was excellent. The welcome, the service and most of all the food was something the team should be proud of, definitely 10 out of 10.

I am already looking forward to our next lunch time visit.

Mr Weston

I just wanted to say a big thank you!  We had a great meeting and event at your hotel on Wednesday and Thursday and everyone was so complimentary about the hotel and the food!

The Board Room is a great room as well and really gave our meeting something, especially as it was such a lovely day they had such nice views to look at.

To Nina and your team

I just wanted to say a big thank you… for everything you did to make our wedding reception go so well.
The service was excellent, food fantastic (for both meals) and staff were so helpful, nothing was a problem to them.

Keep up the brilliant work!
