Hand-picked and hand-prepared with care, The Garden Shed serves wholesome plates that combine fresh, local produce and support sustainability in every sense of the word. Everything from their bread to their stock is lovingly made in house.

It will come as no surprise that plants and vibrant greens are at the epicentre of this lively establishment. Indeed, there might be more plants in their dining room than in their awesome patio (that is akin to a jungle, we might add!). Complete with quaint gardening equipment on the walls, rustic wooden chairs and plenty of fresh veggies to scoff, who says you need to go to the countryside to get your nature fix?!

The menu is a colourful celebration of everything healthy, nutritious and delicious and each dish adds something extra that you won't find anywhere else. With the crispy pork belly comes some sublime additions like a burnt onion puree and a vibrant bowl of chimichurri while the lamb ragu is accompanied by a hand-rolled pappardelle, lemon pangrattato, and grana padano. Don't know what they are? You'll have to pop in to find out!

Vegetarians are well and truly looked after; there's an adorable-sounding veggie patch dish, a crunchy mixing pot of garden greens, tangy cherry tomatoes, salty halloumi and smashed avocado (no dish is complete without it!) There's also a creamy mushroom risotto to tuck into as well as pansotti with spinach and ricotta. Then sit back, relax let the cool surroundings heal, replenish and revive you. Don't be surprised if you sign up to a five-week yoga course the next day.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and great food! Will 100% be back again to try more of the menu. Would highly recommend the DIY s'mores to finish, which they are happy to amend to the number of diners at your table. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!

Lovely service, staff were friendly and make you feel at home in this local establishment. Favourite dishes were the arancini and s’mores. Great take on the s’mores with the thicker homemade biscuit bursting with flavours and the super soft marshmallows.

Great food. Steak was amazing and salad was fresh and plentiful.

The Garden shed has great food, vibe and service. My wife and I went last night for a date and we had a great time. We got the cheese platter, kumara fries and the farmers board. All the portions were large and tasty, we couldn't actually finish it all! It's clear that the Garden Shed take care in what they're doing and love what they do. We love coming to the Garden Shed and hope we can return soon.

Great all round experience. Food was delicious, impeccable service and the desserts were a real treat. We were overcharged by mistake but the manager corrected this easily with no fuss. We'll be back.

It's always with a little trepidation that you try out a new restaurant to spend your hard earned wages on. I need not have been concerned because right from the time of booking I received a good vibe from The Garden Shed! When we walked in we were greeted not only by some friendly faces but the decor of this delightful restaurant set a relaxed and gorgeous ambience for a meal shared with good friends. The fitout of the restaurant with all the bits and pieces you'd find in your old garden shed was fantastic.
Oh and the food - that was very very good too! All in all we came away with a "we'll go there again" feeling.

Our highlight was just how lovely all the staff were. The food was simply divine.
We will be back to try more of the menu!

The restaurant was lovely. It really suited the name of the garden shed, there are garden tools hanging from the ceiling and all over the walls. It was a great birthday celebration. Our server was professional and helped us find the right drink to go with the meal.

What a find!! Thanks to First Table for introducing The Garden Shed to us. It's outside of our normal territory range, so we wouldn't have discovered this gem on our own. AMAZING food, good wine list, lovely staff and a great fit out. We rolled out of there with full bellies and big smiles. And we'll definitely be back - with friends, so they can experience it too

- dined at The Garden Shed on

We had a great selection of food, delicious risotto and arancini balls and fried chicken. The staff were attentive and friendly too. Thank you. We had a lovely night.

Excellent service and food. The only reason I gave only 4 for service was the young waitress was a little too enthusiastic to the point of off putting. Overall a great experience

We had a great time. The restaurant is looking great and there is a great buzz about the place and staff. "Firsttablers" aren't able to sit out back in the Garden but enjoyed the atmosphere inside just as much.
