Welcome to the Apple Shed Kitchen & Bar. We are a scenic 35 minute drive from Nelson, located over the water on Māpua Wharf, with unrivalled views across the Waimea Inlet.

The Apple Shed offers a simple and seasonally driven menu, complimented by a carefully selected range of wine, beer, cider.

Once an original fruit storage shed, the restaurant is a natural, inviting space, framed by large bi-fold windows and doors making the most of it’s picturesque waterfront location.

 The Apple Shed is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, lunch with family and friends, an intimate dinner or a relaxing weekend brunch.

To avoid disappointment, reservations are recommended.



We offer a seasonally driven menu using fresh ingredients which are locally sourced wherever possible. Our dishes reflect our belief that food should be fresh, simple, honest and focused on flavour and quality produce.

Our menus are well balanced and we give thought to various dietary requirements. Many of our dishes are naturally gluten or dairy free. We have vegan options and are happy to substitute ingredients where possible.



Our fully stocked bar features all the favourites along with our own special touches. The wine list is carefully selected to showcase the Nelson region’s superb wines along with a selection of other wines from across New Zealand and beyond.

In keeping with our history as a fruit storage shed, we also serve an ever-growing selection of ciders from local makers, including our very own “Apple Shed Cider”.
