Opted to sit inside as it was a bit too breezy for dining outside. It was quiet with only a handful of customers (it was a Monday). Ordered the tapas: brie, smoked salmon and meats and a soup plus soft drinks. All arrived quite quickly (which is what you expect when a place is not busy). Quality was ok but... More

we visited on a fairly busy night for food with my wife and daughter for food and a drink. It was busy and was directed to a table by the main kitchen access that meant it was heavy with staff. We felt the menu was very light on choice unless you wanted burgers or other types of fast food. Perhaps... More

Nice place to finish evening great place to finish evening off weather for cocktails or drink of different kind. Did not eat there but food that came out looked good and a couple of birthday parties ate there. Staff were great and quick. Only downside was a number of women kept leaving there purses at there table and going outside... More

Hi Jackie T Thank you for your positive review. I honestly don't know how to remedy the situation of customers nipping out for a cigarette and still keeping their table inside. As it is obviously a legal requirement to smoke outside I feel it would be unfair to say, 'if you leave your table to go for a cigarette then... More

Food good, and prompt delivery. Service disappointing. We had to ask for menus, no check back until we finished and cleared 20 mins after we finished. Grumpy staff. No smiles not that friendly.

TheShedFalmouth, General Manager at The Shed, responded to this review

Hi Hollie241284 I am glad to hear you enjoyed your meals but so sorry to hear that our staff came across in such a way. We have countless positive comments on our service and how friendly our team is so I can only imagine that it was a busy time. I can only guess it was one of those occasions... More

Chicken burger with onion rings and great portion sizes. Hubby had classic burger - loved it! Friendly and attentive staff, without being a nuisance, will definitely... More

The shed is clean, friendly and a unique place to eat and have a drink. The cocktails are lush and made quickly and the service good.

This is a very good place to have been recommended to try. The food is good and the menu can be supplemented from the adjacent restaurants which are owned in common and specialise in seafood and meats. We ordered one special meat dish from their menu and a seafood dish from the Shack. After delicious Tortilla crisps and humous, both... More
