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.

The service and food was good except we got our entrees with the mains and we were waiting a while so would have been good to get the entrees first, our table was then full of food and it was too much all at the same time.
Other than that it was lovely, atmosphere was nice and the waitress was sweet.

Initially the booking was for 2 hours but was asked to have the table back in an hour. Its not really fair cause ewe travelled all the way from south East
Also there was no social distancing in the venue. It was so jam packed
Overall experience was ok

Very beautiful place. Feels like being in a massive garden. Love the drinks that were served with real flowers. Downside is that there are too many people on the weekends and nowhere to move, walk or stand. Other than that, it’s a great place to visit if you haven’t already been.

The Potting Shed has an amazing ambiance but their food was okayish, I didn't find it anything special and their menu is not very appealing. Desserts were nice and Instagram-worthy but their food was not a good value for money.

We paid for $15 extra for the romantic dinner setting - candle was only light up half way of our dinner as the wax finished. We asked for replacement but the candle was left and no candle light for the rest of our dinner.
What a waste of the extra setting which should not be bought at the first place

When dessert and coffee were ordered the coffee was delivered promptly, however, the dessert arrived 20mins later - I would have expected that they be served together. Fortunately, the quality of the food and ambience would still enable me to recommend The Potters Shed to others.

Amazing scenery! Found parking both times very easily! Great food and drinks! The virgin mojito was great! The only thing I would have liked was more variety on the menus. I found that we weren’t able to get small things that would have made the meal much more enjoyable... such as; a side of mash potato, pepper sauce or vegetables to accompany my steak. The pricing was consistent and understandable, and the staff was very friendly and social. Overall the experience was great and we will definitely be returning!
