At The Tasting Shed, great food, wine and service are delivered in a variety of spaces perfect for a range of function styles and sizes.
Flexibility is what distinguishes The Tasting Shed from other function venues in the Greater Auckland region.
Spaces are distinctive and have been thoughtfully designed to host groups of all sizes while maintaining our unique desired ambiance. Choosing The Tasting Shed as your function venue means your special event will become an unforgettable occasion.
The Tasting Shed is more than happy to organise parties of all types, whether they be birthdays, anniversaries, product launches or other special occasions.
If you seek a corporate function venue, The Tasting Shed also offers services for Christmas parties, company off-sites/ team-building groups, workshops and seminars.
We provide a set menu for events and functions which is comprised of a selection of our acclaimed specialty dishes. We are also happy to cater for specific dietary and allergy requirements, and we are also happy to work with your budget.
Wine and beverage options can be arranged based on your needs and audio-visual equipment can be catered for anywhere on our premises.

The Courtesy Shuttle
Despite only being 20 minutes from downtown Auckland, sometimes its better to leave the driving to us so that you can relax and enjoy your time with us without having to think about driving!
Our courtesy shuttle seats up to 11 passengers and is free of charge as long as there are a minimum of 8 people from your group traveling in it. Just arrange for your guests to get to one central Auckland location within 30km, and we will pick you up at a pre arranged time and return you back there afterwards. We do not offer multiple trips, so if your group is larger than 11, we can suggest some other options for the rest of the guests.
The Tasting Shed re-opens on Wed Jan 6th with an ALL NEW MENU!
And to celebrate, we invite you to try dishes for the very first time with our Test Kitchen.
Test Kitchen runs from Wed Jan 6th to Sun Jan 10th. Check out the video below from our last test kitchen. Book on our homepage.

1. How does it work?
It’s super easy.
- Simply click on this link
- Create an account
- Place your order
- Select pickup. Wednesday - Thursday: 4pm - 7pm, Friday - Sunday: 12pm - 7pm
2. So if I’m picking my food up, how does that work?
Simple! Once you’ve placed your order and paid online, we will prepare your food and have it waiting for you in 30 mins
3. Can I pay cash on pickup?
Sorry but no, we are not accepting cash payments for takeaway meals.
4. Why can’t I order some wine or beer with my meal?
We don’t hold an off license for alcohol, so we aren’t allowed to offer this unfortunately. But there are some amazing local beer and wine companies collaborating on delivery, so we encourage you to use them!
5. How many dishes should I order?
That depends on how hungry you are. We recommend 3 dishes to be shared between 2 people. So if you’re feeding a family of four, you might want to order a couple of the same dishes so everyone is enjoying the same meal or perhaps order all six dishes so that everyone gets to try a bit of everything. And don’t forget dessert!
The Living Room is the largest venue on The Tasting Shed’s premises, seating up to 40 guests at any one time.
The rustic, country aesthetics have been intentionally preserved with the use of natural and recycled materials throughout. The furnishings are full of character and you’ll find that the interiors’ details evoke images of their own unique and varied histories.
