Mackenzie & Cruickshank’s “The Potting Shed”

Home of the perfect scone

The Potting Shed coffee shop always proves a popular place for locals and visitors.

Everything we serve is home cooked on our premises and we source our products from local suppliers we know and trust. We have become famous for our range of scones and soups with the scones often still warm when they are served.

Whether it be a hearty cooked breakfast, a light lunch, or just a coffee and cake, there is something for everyone.
