Things to do at The Garden Shack



The word garden is in this establishment’s name for a reason. This is because it has a large garden to meander through before, or after having a meal. 



This is also perfect for kids, with space to play, as well as a jungle gym, while parents have seating all over the garden to watch them have fun.
