The Potting Shed Cafe

The Potting Shed Cafe


The Potting Shed Café offers unique views across the bay to the English lakes and the fells from the narrow shore. Situated close to the area of outstanding natural beauty of Silverdale and Arnside many a changing sunset photograph is taken as the tide makes its way up the Bay.

The menu offered is seasonal and changing with it fresh, local and made to order. It's not fast food, in fact it may take a little while but it's worth it! Breakfast is served from 9am weekdays and 10am on a Sunday with lots to choose from. Well known for breakfast specials offered through the seasons. Lunches are available from light bites to big bites and the little ones are catered for with their own menu to choose from.

For those with a sweet tooth there are bakes, cakes and afternoon teas. Freshly made every morning by our baker there is always something to tempt be it a traditional homemade scone to a seasonal yule log at Christmas time.

In the warm months the patio offers a perfect place to unwind and enjoy a milkshake or an ice cream sundae. If it's raining the undercover area shelters everyone from the rain whilst still offering those outstanding views!
