The menu is quite limited but the food is delicious and fresh. However the price seems very expensive, especially for the setting and it is quite cold in here at this time of year.

What a fantastic little gem of a place. The shops selling wonderful food and drink to tempt both before and after eating. Great food choice, cooked beautifully and enjoyable. A little more money than others but worth the extra.

Another inspired lunch at this restaurant. The menue is always small but with high taste and challenging combinations. All work very, very well. One starter of pheasant was perfectly cooked and my trout omelette was memorable. Mains we had tender pork and A fowl, both...More

Was very excited about the Goods Shed but left thinking they have missed a trick for it to hit the heights the surroundings promise. For a start it is quirky, set in a produce factory but it's cold. A wintery evening outside and a lack...More

Tamsin, I do not believe it is dog friendly. The restaurant is inside a mixed product 'food shed ' with various outlets and I cannot recall seeing dogs actually inside the restaurant area.
