Relax and enjoy wonderful food, made with great produce, overlooking beautiful countryside
Set within a converted barn, the Potting Shed garden kitchen & café in St Albans is light and spacious with views over a beautifully landscaped garden and open fields. On warm sunny days you can dine outside on our patio or with the bi-fold doors opened to 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 just a mile down the road.
After growing fruit and vegetables for our farm shop
for over 90yrs, we thought it was about time we gave our customers the opportunity to dine with us in our restaurant and sample some of the lovely things we grow in a selection of great dishes. Whether you are looking for a light bite or hearty lunch we have a wide range of dishes to suit everyone. We have a good selection of vegetarian and gluten free options and a number of our dishes are also vegan friendly. We update our specials menu regularly with seasonal favourites so no matter how often you visit there is always something new to try!
If you are looking for somewhere to celebrate or you if just fancy treating yourself and some friends, we offer a sumptuous cream tea served with a choice of tasty fingers sandwiches, cakes and scones, served with hand selected teas. Afternoon tea is served from 2.30pm- Mon- Sun. Please call to make a reservation. Bookings must be made 24 hours in advance and a 50% deposit is required. If you are looking for a gift idea we also sell gift vouchers.
