A TRIP TO THE POTTING SHED
I love to share travel posts here at The Content Edit but I also thought it would be nice to add in some local posts every now again for my fellow Yorkshire bloggers or anyone visiting the area! Yorkshire is such a stunning part of the UK and well worth a visit. From the vibrant cities to the luscious countryside there is something for everyone.
Recently I was invited to a bloggers event to celebrate the opening of a new pub/restaurant, The Potting Shed in Guiseley. Guiseley itself is only about 15 minutes on the train from Leeds or slightly further from Bradford. The Potting Shed is a small chain of pubs which are popping up all over the county. Having been a regular at the one in Bingley, which is local to me, I was excited to try a new one..
The Potting Shed, Guiseley
We were welcomed with a G&T in the upstairs Gin Bar – It’s really lovely upstair. The theme for The Potting Shed is a garden shed style which has a nice relaxing vibe for a Sunday afternoon. If it’s anything like the Bingley one then it will be lively on a Friday and Saturday night.
We were really spoilt as bloggers and had a buffet of starters where we could try everything on the menu. Everything was really tasty but I’d have to say my favourites were the maple-mustard chipolata and the chicken liver pate – Oh and the garlic mushroom bruschetta.
I really tried not to overdo it on the buffet as we also had a main course to come. I went for the chicken burger with skin on fries which was really nice. I’d brought Keil along with me and he had the lamb kebabs which were equally as good!
Once everyone had finished it was on to cocktail making! I am not the biggest cocktail drinker so I decided to make something I wouldn’t normally choose and I made a good choice with the Brockmans Bloom. It was fun to make the cocktail behind the bar like a real-life bartender. Keil made his favourite an espresso martini which he said was nice too!
The upstairs bar has a retractable roof which in the summer will be fab, the open roof and windows turn it into a roof terrace – I can imagine it will be really popular on a summers day.
Once our cocktails were finished we made our way back to the train station to head home, suitably full & having had a really nice few hours at The Potting Shed.
