Team Scoops Food Awards


The Potting Shed Restaurant at Woodbank Nurseries has found the ingredients for success in a top national awards scheme.

The Potting Shed Restaurant took two coveted accolades in the Horticultural Trades Association contest.

It earned a silver award in the ‘Greatest Catering Team’ category and a bronze for the front of house team.

Judging was carried out by an independent panel of garden centre catering consultants and industry experts.

They said they were impressed with all aspects of the restaurant and ice cream parlour, from the unique and wonderful ambiance through to the menu and the commitment to serving the very best homemade food.

A presentation ceremony was held at The Belfry, in the West Midlands.

Ice Cream Parlour

Relax and unwind with an ice cream or milkshake in our new ice cream parlour… Woodys Ice Cream Station.
Woodys is the best place to discover the delights of Wallings Ice Cream. We have 24 flavours available and the turnover is fast, the ice cream is at its freshest and flavours change from week to week.
Ice-cream is available to eat-in or take-away.

More about our ice cream:

Our premium Real Dairy Ice Cream is supplied by Wallings of Cockerham.

Wallings only use high quality ingredients, including the chocolate they produce. What makes the ice cream really special is that Wallings use real milk which is produced from their own dairy herd, not factory produced. Because the milking parlour is just a few metres across the farmyard from the ice  creamery, the milk is incredibly fresh, packed with extra cream not extra air so it’s packed with yumminess.

Today Wallings of Cockerham still take the milk from their own herd, or as they like to say “Real ice cream, needs real cows”.



Coaches are always welcome although short notice is appreciated to enable staff to keep the high standards we always strive to achieve.
