  • Good for special occasions
  • Charming
  • Great for outdoor dining
The Potting Shed is a place to meet, eat, drink, relax and chat your day and night away – where hanging plants, terracotta pots and timber beams meet brass, brick and iron. Where you can plant yourself down on the swing seat, bench or at the bar and feel like you are on your family’s porch.

It’s a lively place where you can hoe into fresh, locally harvested produce, delivered by our shed-hands. The same hands that will deliver you good-natured banter, craft beers on tap, great tasting wines and unique cocktails.

The menu offers cozy share options for groups, three course substantial meal choices for those wanting to make an evening of it and a fun selection of nibbles for people wanting a light after-work snack with their cocktails or a share jug amongst friends.

Plus, enjoy exclusive after-dark access to The Grounds of Alexandria's latest laneway attractions when you dine in!

    Been recently for a Birthday party and food was sensational. Decided to take my in-laws and family out for lunch to celebrate my father in laws b'day. Really looking forward to another steak. Unfortunately my $50 wagyu was overcooked and chewie. Very disappointed with the quality. Luckily my father in laws was good. Wife and daughter had gluten free hamburgers. The bread was stale and would of needed to be toasted to try and salvage, which was not done. They ended up binning it. Did not feel like I got the quality for a 6 person $300 lunch :(

    A lovely atmosphere. Food choices were great. However more gluten free options were needed. I would recommend this restaurant for those wanting a more casual atmosphere.

    The heater was too hot. We had to take jackets off and it was still uncomfortably hot. The food was lackluster. My pasta looked like noodle soup with the way the sauce was done. Chips were fine. The laneway was covered in water puddles and it wasn’t even raining. Only the mocktails were great.

    Private room for 11 people was excellent and we enjoyed very much. However there is a miscalculation on my bill which I did not detect until I returned home, My original booking booking was for 13 people for the $71-00 set menu ( 13=$900 ) This number was altered to 11 people 24 hours as two of my guests developed Covid) The revised booking was 11x$71-00 = $781-00 In reviewing the receipt the charge was for $94-00 x 11 =$1034.00 which I did not query at the time. I tried to ring to query this but could not get through. My number is 0407062910

    Hi there and thank you for your comments, it is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us very much! I wanted to politely let you know that you have made your calculations based on our Group Feast Style Set Menu which we deliver in the main part of the restaurant rather than our Private Dining Lock in price which is at $94 PP. This price is inclusive of all food and includes the Private Room hire fee. We will be in contact using the details you have kindly provided. Have a wonderful day and kind regards, David | Assistant Venue Manager
