Our Tearooms

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.

To ensure we keep our staff teams & customers as safe as we can & to help keep our business operational during this next phase of the pandemic please take note:

We request that all our customers continue to wear face masks in our garden centre & within our tearoom when entering & moving around.

We will still display our QR code for checking in with NHS app or provide manual track & trace forms.

We feel that these measures are a matter of social responsibility at this time & thank you for your continued support & adherence.

We will not tolerate any abuse of our staff; we are all in this together & deserve mutual respect & kindness at all times.
