The Potting Shed, Llantrisant...

Saturday Lunch at The Potting Shed...

A few weeks back me and James decided to try somewhere new out for lunch and after a visit a few months earlier I suggested 'The Potting Shed'. It originally started out as an off road garden centre next to the Royal Mint but now it has a cutesy gift shop with a homely cafe in the back room with comfy sofas and a wood burner to sit next too. 

They sell pretty much everything they have on display which I think is pretty cool and at the back they have a big kitchen dresser where they display and sell their own chutneys and marmalade in cute little jars.

It was a bit chilly on the day so I chose to have a hot chocolate which came out beautifully presented. James went with a ginger beer which was also presented nicely with a glass and a vintage paper straw.

Everything that we ordered during lunch was really nicely presented. I went for a tuna roll which tasted lovely and came with some salad and a few grapes.

James had ham and salami roll which came with an amazing caramelised onion chutney on the side. The only down side was that it contained only a single piece of ham and salami, which at £4.50 a roll is slightly outrageous!

I enjoyed my lunch and would probably go to The potting Shed again. Sadly I cant say the same for James who felt (and rightly so) a bit ripped off in terms of value for food.

Have you been to The Potting Shed? What are your thoughts?


  1. is that the roll your complaining about?
    looks pretty good to me!

    1. I wasn't complaining about the roll per say- I simply thought that £4.50 for a roll with a single piece of ham and salami was a bit steep. Other than that our visit there was lovely :)


Go oooooon tell me what you think :)
