Where to eat is always the question that we ask when we are out and about. Despite an abundance of winery restaurants we chose the Tin Shed. Having now settled into bigger premises the owners have managed to keep the standards high. Our group enjoyed the pizzas, burger and mexican dish. Prices are good, service is excellent, good portion size... More

Pizza was the go for lunch for our family of four and we were all happy with the pizza - generously topped, lovely crispy base, plenty of choices. Definitely recommend making a booking on weekends - even though it's a large restaurant it was very busy and all tables were reserved over the lunch period. Friendly staff and even though... More

First time I've had Diablo eggs, eggs Benedict with a fiery twist (spicy hollandaise and spicy chorizos). Love it!!! Will definitely come back for more 😍

We definitely enjoyed our coffees and food, but the atmosphere was a bit like in a big food hall. Quite noisy and a bit cold. It seems to be the place for coffee though and on a hot summer day the atmosphere might even be pleasant, but in autumn/winter we would have liked to sit in a bit warmer spot.

Called in for a coffee when I was early for an appointment. I ordered an Apricot slice and a Extra Hot Coffee. Not a long wait and the Coffee and Slice were wonderful. I would recommend to anyone, and the staff were very friendly.

My Mother lives in McLaren Vale so we visit regularly. Never been disappointed. Can get very busy but that is not surprising as it is so good

We ordered the seafood, vegetarian and meat pizzas. They looked awesome when put on the table and tasted the same. We were 3 of us and came close to eating them all because they were delicious. Toppings ample and fresh... Well presented. The place was full so shows that it is a very popular eating venue. We finished off with... More

Deep fried squid was tender but taken too far in deep fry and definitely lost all the 'salt & pepper' flavour. Southern fried chicken was again deep fried too far and was actually served luke warm. Steaks were also over priced at $33 for mash, small steak and jam onion (not even a salad or veg). Very limited menu selection.... More
