The Potting Shed is a place to meet, eat, drink, relax and chat your day and night away – where hanging plants, terracotta pots and timber beams meet brass, brick and iron. Where you can plant yourself down on the swing seat, bench or at the bar and feel like you are on your family’s porch. It’s a lively place where you can hoe into fresh, locally harvested produce, delivered by our shed-hands. The same hands that will deliver you good-natured banter, craft beers on tap, great tasting wines and unique cocktails. The menu offers cozy share options for groups, three course substantial meal choices for those wanting to make an evening of it and a fun selection of nibbles for people wanting a light after-work snack with their cocktails or a share jug amongst friends.

Food was lovely! Everything is so well presented! There was a huge delay in us receiving our food and after chasing it up the staff were honest and said it had gone to another table. They were very apologetic and gave us a complimentary dessert board to compensate which we thought was very generous. Other than the delay with our food the service was fantastic! Will definitely return!

Power went out and as a result things got quiet, so staff were told to pack up the venue even though we were still eating - it killed the vibe. We werent offered any constitution for lighting issue and our starter came out after the mains.

The Potting Shed
Responded on 19 August 2020

Hi Rhys, I apologise had a less than brilliant experience. Unfortunately, on Saturday night, there was a big power outage across the entire suburb that was beyond our control, which lead to many service issues, including sending food at different times. Staff were instructed not to pack down, due to health and safety reasons until all guests left the venue, so I am sorry you felt you were rushed out. Please get in touch, so we can make it up to you on your next visit. Kind regards, Cat, VM

Hi Amy, Thank you for reaching out about your experience with us. I am sorry to hear you had a less than brilliant experience, and felt rushed. Due to further restrictions, we allow 90 minutes per seating, however, 40 minutes for the food to come out is too long, and I will be looking into where we went so wrong.
