Welcome to the Potting Shed

The Potting Shed Cafe is all about locally sourced, high quality food served in a stunning rural location by happy, friendly staff. Great quality food and drink at sensible prices.


Welcome to our website.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by. We are the Potting Shed Café and Farm Shop, based at Askett Nurseries in Askett, near Princes Risborough. As you’re here we assume you share our passion for good food, local produce, local people and local enterprise.

You’ll find us nestled at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, in stunning rural surroundings, on the site of a beautiful Garden Centre which is owned and run by Simon and Alison Cheetham. We’ve always loved Simon and Alison’s operation and we’re delighted by the opportunity to share in its development by the addition of this new Café and Farm Shop.

Our emphasis is on great quality food, containing no ‘nasties’ (wherever possible), locally sourced produce and an intense focus on you, our customer, and making sure that you have a great time when you come to see us.

So drop by soon and join us for tea and cake, lunch or even one of our spectacular afternoon teas!
