Reservations are available for those wishing to join us for lunch. The best way to book is via our online system. Online reservations can be made up to 24 hours in advance. Please note that the majority of our tables are offered on a walk-in basis. We are a busy venue on the weekends and a 5-10 min wait for a table at peak times is common. We are unable to take reservations if you’re joining us for coffee & cake, but will always do our best to accommodate you on the day. For visitors looking to come for just drinks and cake we recommend that you avoid the busiest times (11.45am-1.45pm).

If your table request is for seven people or more, please contact us by email or after 2pm by telephone (contact details below) and we’ll do our best to assist – To ensure you’re served efficiently, we will require a pre-order for groups of seven or more guests. In order to guarantee great service for all our guests, the maximum table size we can accommodate at the weekend is a table for six.

If you’d prefer an outside table (available May-Sept), require a highchair or if you’re bringing your dog with you – please note this in the ‘Comments/Request’ box and we shall try our very best to fulfill your request.

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.
