The Potting Shed Café Restaurant, Lichfield

This weekend we visited the Potting Shed Café Restaurant for Keith’s godmother’s birthday celebration meal. There was 10 of us (8 adults and 2 under 2s). My mother-in-law booked it and from all accounts it was fairly easy to do.

We stumbled upon Slate while trying to hide from the pouring rain!
