Leeds’ newest bar has a quirky theme, live music and your very own garden shed!
Looking for an evening out with a difference? The Potting Shed in Guiseley might be just what you're after.
With weekly live music events, a tasty pub menu and shed loads of offers to keep you coming back for more, the new venue has everything you would expect from a conventional bar – but with plenty of added extras.
The garden themed bar, the fourth of its kind in the UK, will keep you fed and well watered all evening with an array of craft beers and cocktails, as well as fantastic food made from locally sourced produce. Offering small plates like peri peri chicken goujons alongside heartier Christmas themed winter burgers and traditional fish and chips, the family friendly environment has something to please everyone.
Once a month, the Potting Shed will also host Shed Stock – a day-long event designed to showcase the best local music and home grown talent. Families and dogs are always welcome to enjoy a full day of entertainment.
Potting Shed operations director Rebecca Eastwood, said the trademark garden theme is designed to be quirky and fun, giving customers unique features to enjoy whatever the weather.
She explained: “The retractable roof on the terrace means we can use it all year - we can pull that back and have it open in the summer so people can make the most of the sun, then in the winter it’ll be fully heated so they can sit out there any time.
“In our other Potting Sheds we have small individual sheds outside, but in Guiseley we’ve made one big open shed, like a large summer house.
“Creating the extension has given us much more space on the ground and first floors, so we can now seat around 100 downstairs and 50 upstairs. When customers walk upstairs they’ll find the main bar area, with a feature gin bar serving speciality gins, and then they can walk out onto the roof terrace.
“We have green touches right through the bar, lots of hanging baskets and plant pots, but especially the roof terrace – it has artificial grass and hedging so you really get that garden feeling out there.”
Planning an event? No matter how large or small your party, you can book exclusive access to any part of the venue. The sheds and sophisticated rooftop terrace can even be reserved as part of a larger group occasion, perfect for a birthday bash or corporate event.
