The Potting Shed Cafe
The Potting Shed is a traditional tearoom that opened in April 2014 located in Kelways Plant Centre, Langport.
We aim to present the very best of local produce to our customers and feature local produce, local growers and suppliers at all times. Everything we serve is cooked on the premises, with the sole exception of the bread. For example, during May we make a rumpus about Asparagus with supplies coming from 3 growers within a 10 mile radius. We also are proud to use Lovely Langport Lemons in our Lemon Drizzle cakes and other cooking - yes, these really have been grown here at the garden centre.
Kelways is planting edible flowers for us and we will be utilising our own herbs, leaves and flowers in the salads that feature on our daily specials boards.
We can serve a range of gluten free products that we have baked ourselves and our soups are all vegetarian and gluten free. We pride ourselves that we can produce a meal for anyone with any special dietary needs - because we cook everything from scratch we can add in or leave out any of the ingredients to suit a customer’s tastes.
Using the skills of a duo of enthusiastic cooks (and a very keen testing panel of garden centre staff) we aim to present traditional baking. We firmly believe that Beetroot is a savoury item and good, fresh food doesn't need fiddling with.
Despite having only been open since April we are establishing ourselves on the foodies map, utilising Facebook and the web in a recipe that combines tradition and hi-tech innovation.
