Located in a garden centre near Askett, this cafe offers a fairly basic selection of food which was OK. The selection of dips that I had served with sour dough toast sounded great, but was a bit lacking in flavour.

I visited the potting shed with my elderly Grandparents. All the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Also a little play area for my children, who I will bring here in future :)

A little gem hidden away in the local garden centre. Great for coffee, cakes and more. Also love the support given by its customers to the local Risborough Area Residents Asscoiation petition for a better town plan for Princes Risborough.

We are the Potting Shed, Askett; a homely cafe located in the grounds of Askett Nurseries in the middle of the beautiful Chilterns, just outside Princes Risborough. New owners Roz and Claire took over in March 2016 and whilst retaining the current menu of cooked breakfasts, sandwiches and jacket potatoes, we are adding new specials such as homemade pies and a variety of salads and soups, as well as homemade cakes, biscuits and scones. We produce all of our food from fresh, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible and offer gluten free bread and at least one GF cake / biscuit choice every day. Dogs are also very welcome and we share the large garden centre car park so there is easy parking.
