There was four of us on the night we went to The Shed and we all enjoyed our dishes, from Start to finish. Highly recommend. The presentation was great and everything was cooked to perfection.

We visited The Shed again having enjoyed an excellent fixed price seafood menu there earlier in 2018. Unfortunately we were disappointed by our recent meal. The menu has changed to a very limited tapas-style format (with, for example, only two seafood dishes), which seems to...More

Hi Michael, Sorry to hear the new menu wasn’t your vibe. We love it, I don't think the food has ever been better, and the majority of the feedback we’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive. Our menu is a changing and evolving thing, but you’ve...More

The vine is good, but unfortunately it's the only positive thing that I can say about this restaurant. The food is very average and the interior design is neither beautiful nor ergonomically smart. My husband and I we celebrated his birthday there, and I can...More
