News at The SHED

Here's where we let you know about events and happenings in antiques, vintage, craft, upholstery and the tea room here at

The SHED. For other stories and goings-on, please see our blog

Exiting new tearoom is open for business!

November 07, 2017

We're really excited to announce that our tea room has now reopened with its lovely new owners Jill & Ian. They will be baking daily at The SHED so please come along, say hi and enjoy their wares - have lunch or just tea and cake; afternoon teas available on booking

Our picture shows delicious jacket potato, coronation chicken, coleslaw and salad for only £4! Lots of other fillings available, and lots of other delights to choose from.

Tea at The SHED open daily, 10-4.30 - Jill and Ian can't wait to meet you. Take a look around and grab some refreshment whilst you make up your mind on how much treasure you take home!

Exciting tea room opportunity!

September 21, 2017

Tea at the SHED is temporarily closing from 29th September as our amazing chef, Simon, has decided to follow other avenues. We know you'll join us in wishing him luck and thanks for offering the most delicious food and drinks.

We are sad to see Simon go but, as with every change, this opens up a new opportunity for someone to take over our tea room. We're happy for you to put your proposal to us - we're not expecting to replicate Simon' offer; we know that there are other styles of food and drinks and we'd love to hear your ideas. We know, from our experience, that you would need to offer both vegan and gluten free food to our customers; other than that stipulation, ideas can be as conservative or as exciting as you like. We are also open to proposals that include general tea room scenarios, private parties and functions too.

Anyone wishing to chat about the possibility of following in Simon's footsteps and creating their very own tearoom, please give us a call

Framing is a new art for us

July 10, 2017

We are absolutely delighted to be able to add yet another string to our bow here at The SHED. So far, apart from our core offering of the best selection of antiques, vintage, garden ware, crafts and old, stripped pine, we've also added:

We're now pleased ​to bring you our latest service: Black Dog Picture Framing. Led by Helen, our picture framing service offers a bespoke picture framing service for all of your art work, photography or crafts. 

Nip in and talk to us, give us a call on 01473 748519, or bring in your piece of art and we can discuss how best to meet your needs.

Upholstery and online

April 22, 2017

We've listened to you and we've extended our services even further:

Adding further strings to our bow, there are now even more reasons for you to visit, peruse and chat about our treasures and services whilst you take a spot of lunch or afternoon tea - see you soon!​

We'd love to welcome you, whether it's your first visit, or whether we've met you before - come on over and join our celebration.

For those of you unable to make Friday evening, please join us during our usual opening hours at the weekend (Saturday March 4th, Sunday March 5th), and grab some birthday cake when you have a cuppa / some lunch in our tearoom.

Please see our blog and keep an eye out on social media - we'll be launching a competition with a fabulous prize for one lucky winner - birthdays are all about presents aren't they?!

The Shed Adds More Value

November 24, 2016

After our first fantastic valuation event, we're partnering with renowned, local auction house, Bishop & Miller, once again to hold our second valuation event here at The SHED - come along with your vintage and antique treasures and let the experts take a look. 

Bring along as many items as you like to be valued by Oliver from Bishop & Miller auctioneers, on a first come, first served basis, and then decide to take them home, put them into a Bishop and Miller auction or sell to one of our fabulous traders. 

 

The event is on Saturday 10th December from 11am to 1:30pm. In the new year we aim to hold valuation days on the last Saturday of each month so that you'll remember the event. Each valuation will start at 11am and finish at 1.30pm

 

Bishop & Miller are happy to look at and value objects to include: jewellery, watches, pocket watches, silver objects, gold, fountain pens, books & maps (pre 1900), all types of antiques, clocks, scientific instruments and slides, works of art, tribal objects, ceramics, antiquities, coins, medals, militaria, antique furniture, paintings, antique and modern firearms, musical instruments - antique and modern.

We're really looking forward to meeting you and seeing your heirlooms and objects of interest - take a look at our blog post for a round-up of our first event held recently.
