Thrive and grow
The menu launch coincides with the appointment of a new General Manager, Maxine Griffiths, who brings with her over 15 years of experience working with brands such as Stonegate and Intertain. Maxine will be responsible for looking after The Potting Shed and sister brand Firepit in Halifax, and had this to say as she settled into her now role:
“I’m thrilled to be part of The Potting Shed and Firepit team, and can’t wait to be a part of making these exciting brands thrive and grow even further. After listening to customer feedback, we’ve decided to strip back our food menu, keeping all the bestselling favourites, but also adding some amazing options for veggies, vegans and those looking for something a little healthier.”
“The people of Halifax seem to have really taken to our venue, and our aim is to be the best casual dining and drinking spot in town. We’re confident our latest food offering offers excellent value for money, and we welcome any feedback with open arms. We hope to see you in our restaurant soon!”
The quirky bar and restaurant is located on Fountain Street in Halifax town centre, and is one of six restaurants in The Potting Shed portfolio. Sister company Firepit Smokehouse & Sports Bar is located in the same venue, and focuses on US BBQ inspired food and big game screenings, making the dual brand venue one of the town’s most sought after nightspots.
