The dinky market town of Potton is arranged around a handsome medieval market square, demonstrating its historic importance as a centre of trading. It’s horse market attracted international buyers up until the 1930s. The town was ravaged by fire in 1783, which devastated half the centre, and from the ashes of the Rose and Crown rose The Coach House.
The red-brick, Georgian inn is a handy staging post at the southern end of the A1. It’s been comprehensively revamped and is staffed by friendly faces in casual uniforms.
Breakfasts are filling while the lunch and dinner menus features traditional pub dishes with a twist, such as cajun-dusted squid, pea and bean burger or Gressingham duck breast with artichoke purée,. You can, of course, opt for a burger or sandwich if you prefer. And if you’re feeling sluggish after feasting, you can stay the night in one of the beautiful bedrooms.
