Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hubby is coeliac and they have a great GF menu. Took extra care with his food. Big portion sizes and delicious. We will be back. It was very busy and when taking the order advised us that we would have about 30 min wait for the food. It was well worth the wait 😀

We celebrated a family member's birthday at the Red Shed mid week. The cafe was obviously popular but we managed to find an outdoor table in a shady spot close to the play area - ideal for families with children. We were pleasantly surprised at the generous portions of cabinet food and the coffee was nice and hot. Helpful, friendly service.

We gathered for a family celebration of two birthdays and so had 13 people attend. The red shed provides open relaxed dining in an informal setting that feels so comfortable. The food was excellent and they even allowed us to bring our own birthday cake. A really wonderful place. Can’t recommend it enough.

We visited here on Sunday morning and was overall an unsatisfying experience. It’s was very busy but we managed to share a table outside, I went to grab a high chairs for my son and was surprised to what I found, they were all very old and look as though they should be in the bin, not somewhere you’d want to feed your child. I don’t think I’ve come across a breakfast menu this expensive before however I can’t comment on the food itself as the wait for a meal was 45 mins so we decided to go elsewhere. The cabinet food looked slightly underwhelming and overpriced, I noticed one slice of cake for $8.50... Overall unsatisfying experience and unsure what the hype is about!

Ok it was fathers day so I expected it to be busy but we were nearly an hour waiting for food for 6 people. The food was generous in proportion so we had value for money but when your having brunch you haven't eaten all morning and it was almost 11am when our food arrived. Service was good and the staff friendly and attentive.

This open cafe had sparrows flying over and hopping on tables with bird poop on the furniture. A long line to order. A long wait for the food. My friend's salad included a hard lump that could have broken a tooth. Tasteless coffee. A fail.

Hi there, We are a open free flowing garden café. We are unable to help the birds and we do our up most best to clear dishes as fast as possible to prevent them hopping on tables. The bird poop on the furniture is an inevitable part of being a garden café, we also regularly clean our furniture to prevent our customers from having to sit on this. I wish your friends salad had been brought to one of our waitress' attention. We would have re made her salad and discovered what had happened. This is the same situation with the coffee. If you do ever wish to return in the future please ask to speak to the Manager. I will be more than happy to set you up with some vouchers and discuss your previous experience with us. Thank you.

We choose a Thai veg bake from the cabinet. It was presented with a lovely looking topping but underneath it was egg and what looked like bits of bread or a floury potato and nothing else. Why do this when the setting at redshed is so beautiful. Too greedy I'd say. We had another experience awhile back with a soup that had been watered down and had no flavour... we had to leave that as well.

Used some gift vouchers for lunch - a rustic type venue with lovely gardens and both indoor and outdoor seating options. I was surprised how busy it was for a Wednesday but the delicious food and efficient service explains why it is a popular place. We will be back with friends next time.

When we go out for breakfast we don't expect Michelin quality. This is the second time we have had an inferior breakfast. I did go up to give feed back at the time but unfortunately a tour bus had just arrived. We both had mushrooms on toasted bread which came with a slurry that was supposed to be the sauce so of course the toast was pulp and all the food was totally over salted, to finish off the coffee was cold.

Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, we couldn't eat in; had to eat in the car. We ordered Palazza burgers and chicken nachos, iced chocolate and a Berry smoothie. The burgers were huge, delicious and well worth the price. The nachos were a bit gluggy; too soggy to enjoy. The Berry smoothie was disappointing as made from a syrup instead of fruit. The iced chocolate was satisfactory. It was a mixed experience but we'd be prepared to return when out of Covid. I must say that the staff were friendly and the service was fine.

Fantastic Country Cafe with plenty of outdoor seating under umbrellas in a very pleasant country garden. The coffee is consistently good, the menu is extensive with plenty of delicious breakfast and lunch options to choose from - the cabinet is full of both savoury options as well as the most incredible cakes and sweet options. The service is incredibly efficient with well trained and friendly staff. Highly recommended 👌

Excellent food choices, catering for people with special dietary requirements. Excellent and friendly service. Even when the cafe was very busy the food was brought to the table quickly. Have visited twice lately, once for coffee (which was very good) and date scones (also very good) for morning tea, and the second time for lunch

What a shock when we visited this time, new owners have completely trimmed the menu which was a shock!!! Cabinet food looked so so & not very nice. Prices are up there for what we had which was saladS and coffee . The place needs a lot of love inside and outside. Such a shame as this was always a great place to meet friends….not anymore as we won’t be back!!!

Absolutely awful . Corn fritters were gooey and gelatin like with the odd corn kernel See the photos The salad, bean sprouts and dried up orange were past their use by date, wilted and turning brown. There were more panko crumbs on the chicken than chicken.

A delightful indoor/outdoor garden setting with a craft market from time to time. The range of meals gives something to please everyone. The venue is able to cater to groups for special occasions.
