I met some friends here. The food was pleasant, but small servings for the price. The same for the coffee. It was good, but small cups for the price.

Cocktails in the bar, tapas for dinner, snacks and deserts - they have them all here. Part of a trio of restaurants but we had a great family dinner yet again, thank you. Favourite dish the Tapas selection, reminds us of our house in Spain.

high praise indeed. Lunch on Sunday 08 November had the roast beef with yorkshire puddings several vegetables and roast potatoes. All were beautifully cooked, hot and nicely presented. Putting the lunch ingredients all together into a serving dish is clever as one of us prefers slightly rare and the other medium - so much better than swapping pieces of meat... More

Just dropped in on the Sunday night. No pressure to have a main meal. Lovely smooth carafe of house red. Shared the best homemade nachos with salsa, sour cream, mozzarella, jalapeños and shredded bacon we have ever had; followed by chocolate waffle and ice-cream. The staff were friendly and helpful and the ambiance was warm and calm.

Seven of us had lunch here recently and the food, service and surroundings were superb. Two of us were not very hungry and had starters instead of main courses and they were Lange and very satisfying. The food was cooked fresh and was served in a modern attractive way and was really well received. We had coffees instead of deserts... More

Turned up early on Saturday evening and the staff were happy to accommodate us for dinner - before they got busy with bookings. Really enjoyed my Caesar salad and my friend had a burger - also looked really tasty - empty plate suggests it was good too. Didn't feel rushed; atmosphere was friendly and would certainly visit again.

We visited for lunch and chose the roasted vegetable sandwich which was slimy and tasteless. The service was ok but would not visit again.

Thank Winky21
TheShedFalmouth, General Manager at The Shed, responded to this review

Dear Winky21 I am sorry you did not enjoy your sandwich. I will look into what went wrong here as this dish usually goes down well with vegetarians. I am glad that you enjoyed the service. I hope that you will return, contrary to your comment, as I'm sure that The Shed has so much more to offer you. Kind... More
