Tries to be too many things - cider tasting, restaurant, museum (pay to enter), souvenirs - and doesn't excel at any. Don't put at the top of your list of things to do.

Dropped into this place and so glad we did. Did the cider tasting paddle and had a piece of their wonderful apple pie. Wonderful place looked after well.

We stopped in here on the way through for a quick drink and something to eat. We tried the cider tasting paddle which was fun. We ordered a platter with cheese (divine, creamy cheddar) honeyed walnuts and pickled onions that were out of this world. The museum was sort of fun for the kids and the venue is so lovely.... More

Very simple meal . Infact we ordered just an apple pie with ice cream . It was the best apple pie ever . There is a nice museum ( can cover it in 15 minutes ) and it is free with the exception of a 1 dollar donation . If you are in grove give it a try .

We love taking interstate visitors to Hobart here for a lazy afternoon. Plenty of space for kids to run around, welcoming staff, easy food, great cider tasting paddles, love the basket of rugs for changeable weather :)

My husband and I just went here for something to do really and it is quite interesting to see the old photos and read a bit about the history of the beginning of the apple industry. Also there are shelves with some rather expensive produce. This is an old shed with a museum of sorts, the odd piece of old... More

The atmosphere on Friday nights is worth the trip... with the Burgers that just melt. A well kept secret like Tasmania, so tell none!

We are lucky enough to live in the beautiful Huon Valley and one of the great additions to our local area is the Apple Shed. As part of a weekend of birthday celebrations we kicked off with dinner and night of excellent music and of course gorgeous cider. The atmosphere in the Shed was fantastic, it was warm (temperature and... More
