You don't need your wellies, spade or trowel when visiting the garden themed Potting Shed in Bingley, just a healthy appetite to try something from the new autumn menu that has just been introduced.

The pub which also serves food is one of the busiest pubs in Bingley and on entering the homely place it is easy to see why: a good warm atmosphere, attentive and friendly staff and food served at a reasonable price.

If it is too noisy downstairs there are quieter places to sit, eat and drink upstairs. We visited on a Friday night and the place was buzzing yet that did not affect the quick service.

The new autumn food menu includes new items such as starters like Mushroom Dippers, Mac N Cheese Bites and Homemade Buffalo Cauliflower Bites - all are priced under a fiver.

The new wraps again are all priced under £5.00 and include Chicken Caesar, Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato and Hoi Sin Duck Wrap.

For starter I chose the Posh Garlic Flat Bread with Red Onion. Not too sure what was posh about it, but the red onion did give it some bite and the serving was so big it would probably suffice as a main meal in itself.

My partner went for the Tempura King Prawns which were delicious.

The pizzas are all priced under £11.00. My partner decided upon the Posh Ham and Pineapple pizza, not sure again where the posh bit comes in, it's Bingley we are in, not Harrogate or Ilkley! For some the pizza base might be a bit on the doughy side. Fair play to our server who did offer to cook another pizza. My partner didn't want to waste food and ate her original pizza.

The 6oz burgers include the BBQ Chicken Burger- for that read a moist chicken fillet topped with bacon, BBQ sauce and cheese. I chose the fat chips to go with it. Finger licking good? If you do like your burgers they have a 2-4-1 burger night every Wednesday.

Puddings as they call them, not desserts, (we are in Yorkshire don't forget), include the new Chocolate Four Layer Chocolate Fudge Cake - a dieter's worst nightmare but a foodies delight. Very sweet and tasty this hot temptation was bliss.

My partner was tempted by the Cheesecake which came served with strawberries. Tangy with a good firm base it was as firm as a Yorkshire man's handshake.

On the last Thursday of every month they have a live band as part of the Its Grim Up North event.

On Thursday 31st October local band Kilsney Green perform. The soulful blues based band recently appeared at Bingley Music Live. From what I have heard the bigger stages are just around the corner for this exciting Yorkshire act.

Good food, good service and not a weed in sight in the garden either. Perhaps it's time to discover this garden of delights.
