Online booking requests for lunch can only be made 24hrs in advance. Please call 01727 856995 to make a reservation on the day.  We only reserve 1/3 of our tables for lunch on any given day, remaining tables are available for walk-ins only.

If you would like an outside table, require a highchair, or are planning to visit with your dog, please state in the ‘Comments/Request’ box so we can reserve tables in the correct area for you. If you arrive with a dog and we weren’t made aware in advance we may have allocated a table for you in our dog-free area.

Please note that we are card payment only.

Set within a converted barn and with views over a beautifully landscaped garden and open countryside, The award winning Potting Shed Café is one of the most picturesque venues to eat in St Albans, Harpenden, Welwyn and villages in Hertfordshire.

On warm sunny days you can dine outside on our sheltered patio or with the bi-fold doors open, enjoy the summer breeze gently blowing in.

Well behaved dogs are welcome, so you can relax and enjoy a well-earned drink and slice of cake after a walk around Heartwood Forest situated less than a mile down the road.
