Eating out at the Potting Shed at The Grounds

The Potting Shed at The Grounds is lots of fun. Especially with a group of other moms on a mom’s day out.

 

Mom’s day out is always a big occasion. Maybe wear make up, put on child unfriendly jewellery, something dangly maybe. Love it!

 

This time I set course for Alexandria which is slightly south of Sydney to visit the much raved about Potting Shed.  The Potting Shed at The Grounds, Alexandria

What is The Grounds

The Grounds is not a football field or parkland as I had expected. It is an oasis in the middle of a factory / warehouse area. The Grounds is a number of dining spots on a block all themed to make you feel like you’re in a forestry garden in the country. It’s pretty cool.

Parking 

Parking is insane on the weekends due to The Grounds’ popularity.

 

You could always take the train to Green Square Station and then do the 1km walk if you have the time. If you do this, make sure to take the Bourke Road exit.

Features of the Potting Shed, The Grounds

 

The setting is just gorgeous and makes you feel like you’re a million miles away from Sydney (bar the hundreds of Sydneysiders there).

 

I love all the flowers and the greenery and the decor behind it all has also been carefully thought out and chosen.

Food at the Potting Shed, The Grounds

We had a delicious lunch at the Potting Shed. Most people in our group ordered either the Cheeseburger or the Pumpkin Fatteh. Not all items are available from 4:15 onwards.

 

I had the pumpkin and it was really good and a massive portion – I couldn’t make it through it all and took some home for the kids to have with their dinner.

 

The only down side is that the Potting Shed doesn’t serve coffee. You have to go to another eatery and bring it back which isn’t a problem unless you don’t want to have to make the short walk. But it does serve alcohol and juice, which it says it’s famous for.

The Potting Shed Service

The service was good. Just be sure to order as soon as you can because the kitchen is busy busy.

 

We were able to pay the bill by card (only if it’s a 4 way split) which is a help when you’ve no clue where an ATM is and you don’t carry cash.

 

After eating you must take a walk around the grounds, visit Kevin Bacon the resident Pig at the petting zoo and take a few selfies against the luscious backdrop of the Grounds.
