The Apple Shed is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, lunch with family and friends, or an intimate dinner.
Superb food in a glorious setting
Arrived on a beautiful evening to a table with a lovely view. Waiting staff were very friendly and attentive, enjoyed our chat.Both had fish which was tasty and well cooked , nice wines and lovely desserts . All in all another fantastic visit to the Apple Shed .We will return on our next visit from Scotland! Thank you .
The beef carpacio is just the best!
A lovely Sunday afternoon with my elderly mother and family but the loud music outside was more suited to a Saturday night. Could you not have more mellow music at that time of day. We had a lovely French waiter. Unfortunately my son ordered the beef carpaccio and we didn't realise it was raw meat which he stomached in small bites with big gulps of water. Kind of ruined our lovely lunch with my visiting 83 year old mum. Great setting.
It was just such a wonderful evening. The staff were amazing, service perfect. And the food was so delicious! We highly recommend
Expensive, but food was mostly fantastic. Fish was a bit overcooked but steaks were perfect and good size. Pork was also brilliant service was impeccable. Thanks.
Absolutely delighted with every aspect of your business. Our group of 12, had a super time thanks to waiter Senna and the food and drink choices available for a light lunch. Thank you; we'll definitely be back! Margie Silich, Brightwater
The food was delicious, service excellent and a lovely setting
Amazing place! Drove all the way just to dine at this place. Lovely food and service. Definitely recommending it to everyone!
Friendly attentive service with great food and relaxed but aesthetically pleasing environment.
We visited The Apple Shed for dinner on New Year's Eve and expected it to be busy - it was... We enjoyed the buzzing atmosphere and the service was perfect. The kitchen staff were sending out many meals that night and ours were absolutely superb. We eat at The Apple Shed at all times of the year as we're locals and it's always a great experience... Thanks for providing such a lovely inviting atmosphere and fine offering for a meal out...
A lovely lunch with fresh local produce. Pleasant attentive waiting staff. A lovely setting too.
Overall experience was excellent. Our table request was listened to and lovely. Service started off brilliant but when it got busy we were left without drinks or dessert menus for a good 20 minutes. Would definitely recommend over and over again. Food was AMAZING.
Excellent food and service! Thank you!
Wonderful food wonderful service wonderful atmosphere highly recommend we will definitely be back
Great spot and good food and decor
Food was amazing and would highly recommend. However my partner and I had booked a table for 2 for 7.30 pm. The service was very slow from the start, was a good 15minutes until we got asked what drinks we wanted. And our meals took over an hour and a half to come out. Another table who arrived 15minutes after us had there meals 15minutes before us to. We ended up leaving the restaurant after 9.30pm which was very disappointing. However the food was worth it
Fantastic lunch today., best meal I have had in a while!! 😃
Es war ganz ausgezeichnet!
