Description
Set in the grounds of a delightfully individual garden centre, The Potting Shed cafe serves breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks at very reasonable prices. We are constantly reviewing our menu choices to include new options and specials. We have outdoor seating which is very popular in the spring and summer. There is plenty of free parking and our staff are always pleased to welcome you.
