Service staff very helpful. Small sized portions but very tasty. I suggest ordering 1 or 2 each and then order more if necessary. Although you probably MUST try the dessert as everyone enjoyed their ice creams and I loved the chocolate. For main I had the cauliflower which was tempura, Mum had the brocollini which was a bit light - only 3 broccoli stalks and we had the market fish. This was on pearl barley - tasted and looked a bit like porridge, I felt it was a bit heavy with the fish. My husband had the lamb shoulder. This was lovely, but that was all you got, just lamb, so would need to order a vegetable dish. Great outdoor area, bit cold in August to enjoy outside but the grounds were pretty. Nice and warm inside with heaters

Went today for lunch and it was yummy!! We were greeted by a very friendly young lady who remembered speaking to me on the phone.
We ordered a selection of dishes each one delicious. The only criticism is that there’s no children menu that’s fine if you have kids that aren’t fussy but if they are you’ll be hard pushed to find anything for young ones to eat.
Other than that everything else was spot on.

The Tasting Shed was recommended to me for a surprise birthday dinner for my husband. The food was stunning, and service excellent.

The tasting shed is on of those out of the way venues, that is well worth the effort to go there and enjoy and experience the quality of the food and wine. Best to share the various dishes and experience the various tastes. Excellent wine list - catering for all tastes.
