I can’t quite believe I haven’t been to the Milk Shed before now. I had vaguely heard of it but had wrongly got the impression it just a small ice cream factory. My friend suggested it as a place for lunch where we could have something grown up and yummy to eat in pleasant surroundings, but would still be comfortable to have a 2 year old with us. Never an easy to task to find somewhere that will tick all these boxes as there’s usually a compromise somewhere.
The Milk Shed has a lovely ambience inside. Bright, light, fresh and with some country charm. Rustic crates contrast against crisp white walls and powder blue fittings. The menu changes on a regular basis and is made fresh each day using local products where possible. My mouth is watering just thinking back to the lunch I had. Warm peperonata on toast with buffalo mozzarella, pea shoots, toasted seeds and topped with crispy pancetta. The portions don’t skimp and it was the perfect blend of flavours and texture. There’s a kids menu too and my friends daughter had beans on toast.
There is also a great selection of cakes and of course the ice cream. They make their own ice cream at The Milk Shed with all the classics and then more unusual guest specials.
Lunch was great but you would feel just as comfortable coming here for coffee and a cake as the Milk Shed is somewhere between a café and restaurant in feel.
The is paper and cups of crayons for kids as well as the kids menu and of course ice cream making it a definite recommendation from me.
