We came for lunch on Father’s Day. The premise was packed but we were attended to quickly and offered seating options. Taking the orders and serving were also very timely => A+ for the service. The meals (both daily specials) were good but could improve...More
Weekend brunch at the Apple Shed was a real pleasure. Sited on the waterfront at Mapua with some tables right over the water, this is a charming venue. On a chilly, if sunny, Nelson morning, a glowing woodburner made the space cosy and welcoming. The...More
Some friends and I visited The Apple Shed after being recommended. We were all very happy with the atmosphere and setting. The food was great - I especially enjoyed the pork belly! Service was knowledgable and friendly - would definitely recommend to others.
Thank you Stuart H for your positive review. The pork belly is proving to be a crowd favourite for winter, so we are pleased you also enjoyed it. We look forward to seeing you and your friends back at The Apple Shed soon!

An impromptu visit to check out the new menu under new owners. Pleasantly surprised, good service, interesting new menu, superb cooking and well presented dishes. My wife had market fish and I had ribeye steak, both dishes ticked all our boxes; I would go as...More
Thank you for your positive review Neil B. We are so glad you enjoyed your evening with us at The Apple Shed. We look forward to seeing you when you return!
Lunch is suppose to be light, but c'mon apple shed! We didnt order the croquettes as were told by waitress it was only 3 units, and not a full meal, other dishes would be more suitable. Gnochi was served in a tiny shallow ramekin portion,...More
Hi Imontnz. We are sorry to hear we didn't meet your expectations on Sunday. Please bear with us, we took over the business 5 days prior and Sunday was our second day of service. The dishes are still being refined according to the reception of...More
