There has been a Garden Centre on this site for more then 30 years. In 2001, Chris and Jayne Warman were given the opportunity by the Redcliffe family to create the "Potting Shed" Tearoom.
It began with a small menu of tea, cakes and sandwiches and although the original "Dorset apple cake and clotted cream" offer is still enjoyed has now an established menu for breakfasts, lunches and daily specials good quality at reasonable prices.
Despite its growth and increased staff we remain committed to great customer service by continuing to work in the business remain in touch with our customers opinions and always welcome feedback.
We are thrilled to announce that The Potting Shed Tearoom has re-opened for OUTSIDE DINING.
Due to the unpredictable nature of the British weather, we will not be taking bookings at this time but our outside seating capacity has increased to 50 so we are hopeful that we will be to accommodate even at busy times.
To manage staff safety, groups will be limited to 6 at all times.
It is a LEGAL REQUIREMENT that as a business we ensure all customers check in when joining us either by using the QR Code or NHS App or our written record.
We have adapted our menu to accommodate the new situation & all our choices can be swiftly adapted to take away if necessary!!
We will also be offering our whole menu as take away which will be located in the Rose Garden behind the tearoom.
WE’VE MISSED YOU & LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON!
