Potters Bar Things to Do

  • A circuit around the park - Parkfield

    Another lovely park in Potters Bar which is on the other side of the road from the Oakmere. It's an ideal place for a walk around at lunchtime when the weather is fine.Parkfield is set out more like a nature open space where some of the park is kept as a natural meadow. It has a Japanese garden with some lovely trees, especially the beautiful...

    This park, with it's two large ponds, is an lovely spot to chill out on a weekday lunchtime .

You should also see plenty of ducks, swans & Canadian geese. There are a...

  • Wyllyott's Manor:the town's most...

    Unlike the neighbouring village of South Mimms (which features in the Domesday Book of 1086), Potters Bar is a fairly new town with few old buildings.Its only real claim to architectural fame is the impossible-to-spell Wyllyott's Manor - a Grade II listed building in a little close adjacent to the ill-fated railway station. It is thought to date...

Potters Bar Restaurants

  • Harvester

    The Oakmere house Harvester is not your fine dining restaurant. It does however offer a decent meal for a decent price and it's certainly ideal for a family meal.I've been in here for a quiet Christmas meal with work colleagues and I also pop in for a lunchtime burger in the garden.If you just want a drink at the bar then they have a decent room...

  • Lunchtime Pub

    A McMullens pub which is very decent for lunchtime. Always friendly and serves decent food. It's tucked away from the main thoroughfares of Potters Bar but is worth the effort to seek out. A relaxed modern atmosphere with a variety of seating options including comfy sofas. I'm having the chilli dog

  • Decent sit down kebab restaurant

    The friendly staff in this newish restaurant make it a place to come back to for a spot of lunch. The chicken shish is always tasty and they a;ways throw in a few extras like warm bread with a few dips.

  • An Upmarket Italian

    This is a lovely Italian restaurant and quite up market for Potters Bar, fine dining if you will.  I have been here for lunch on a number of occasions, most of the time somebody else is paying for a business lunch, although I have been for Christmas or birthday’s if I’m feeling flush. Saying that, it doesn’t have to be that expensive, and you can...

  • A Working Mans Cafe

    A working mans cafe in the style that Ray Davies lamented the passing of in one of his songs. The place is clean, the staff ate friendly and the tables and chairs are bolted to the floor.A traditional cafe of the type that we are running short of in England. The usual was two poached eggs on toast washed down with a proper cup of tea, but I had...

  • Tasty Lunchtime Sandwich

    An oft frequented place at lunchtime. The queues can seem long but you are usually quickly served. The friendly staff serve up a tasty selection of baguettes, rolls and sandwiches in an Italian deli style. Eat in at one of their small tables or takeaway back to your desk.   I like a bit of tuna mix in a sundried tomato ciabatta, although I am also...

    Favorite thing: There are loads of places to get your hair cut in Potters Bar.

    I always get my hair cut at this local establishment. Mario and his team are really friendly and it's always a pleasure. He serves great coffee and biscuits. Also look out for his fancy dress outfits at Christmas.
