The Potting Shed Cafe

Set within a converted barn 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 Hertfordshire. On warm sunny days you can dine outside on our sheltered patio, or with the bi-fold doors folded back, enjoy the summer breeze gently blowing into the café. 

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. 

We offer a range of popular breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes, as well as seasonal specials made with our own grown and locally sourced ingredients.  All dishes are made fresh to order, with a great choice for Vegans, Vegetarians and Gluten-free diners.

You can view our menu and make reservations for lunch on the Potting Shed website-
