A neighbourhood favourite, nestled in the cobbled stoned lanes of Darley Abbey Mills, The Shed stands large & proud. This historic heritage site has its mojo back and now boasts a thriving business community alongside a niche enclave of independent eateries. 

Its a destination for fabulous food, banging coffee, world wines & classy cocktails with a real welcoming vibe, all of which just draws you right in. 

Pull up a seat in our friendly bar, dine amongst the bare brick interior & vaulted ceilings of the former cotton mill or eat outside on our terrace over looking the river. 

Anything but formal, we have a chilled convivial day time feel. 

Our canteen style eatery offers simple nourishing dishes for both breakfast & lunch, which alongside our artisan ‘Caravan’ hand roasted coffee & mouthwatering cakes makes us a hot spot for meet ups with friends, (four legged included) family, work mates or just come on your own you will all enjoy. 

As evening approaches we transform our large space into a more refined dining experience. Still relaxed and unpretentious, we bring a contemporary menu with bold flavours and seasonal produce to the table with the same generous friendly warm service.
