My friends and I arrived around 3:30pm and the main Grounds cafe was about to close but The Potting Shed opens until late- they're open for dinner, how cool is that! The Potting Shed was quite empty since it was a weekday and late afternoon but this was good for us that means we don't have to wait and we can have a nice and peaceful late lunch. :) The Potting Shed is located next to the flower shop and it does follow the main cafe theme- rustic and "farm" themed.
The menu has options of small dishes which is recommended to be shared with friends and also main dishes. My friends and I decided to order the pork belly sliders, Angus short rib and the fish and chips. The prices of the dishes are slightly more expensive than the main Grounds cafe and to be honest I don't think it is as worth it as the main Grounds restaurant (read more below).
Pork belly sliders w/ pork crackling | $15
Slow Cooked Grain-Fed Angus Short Rib with Sweet and Sour Glaze, Spiced Eggplant and Garlic Chips
Battered Market-Fresh Fish of the Day | w/ served with handcut potato chunks and rosemary salt, lemon, watercress, radish and tartare | $22.00
Overall, The Potting Shed has a lot to offer and I'm glad that The Grounds of Alexandria is expanding and growing in popularity. The Potting Shed is a great place to grab some food and drinks with friends, and the best part is that they open until late (open for dinner). It is a little bit pricier than the main Grounds cafe but I'm glad that I got to try it and experience a different part of the Grounds.
Happy eating x
