Sherwoods is in the main street near the water. We went on a warm night and the front of the restaurant was opened up. We had a lovely French waitress who was friendly and attentive. We ordered the slow cooked lamb with 3 sides which was delicious and generous as was the chicken dish. We also enjoyed the lemon cheesecake... More

We booked here for our anniversary dinner. Got there early and the lovely staff took us in. I ordered a cocktail which tasted more like a spritzer and more non alcoholic. We ordered soft shell crab for entree and this was nice but salty. My husband ordered fish and chips and this came with a long piece of hair fried... More

We dined on New Years day so one expects the restaurant to be busy. However it probably wasn't a great idea filling outside tables with walk ins as I don't think the kitchen could keep up. We waited 45-50 mins for the entrees, but then the main came out much more quickly. We were aware that others around us were... More

Looking for a quiet place to eat we spotted sherwoods from across the street. Service was good but the drinks took way too long to arrive, for not many people in the restaurant I didn't quite understand why. We shared Garlic pizza for entree it was a little perculiar, not sure but it seemed like it had sliced cheddar from... More

Stopped in for a nice bottle of wine and dessert last night and was disappointed with the slow service. It took a long time for the wine to come out followed by a long wait for our dessert order to be taken and then received. The desserts were nothing spectacular, I had cheesecake and it was small and I don't... More

We had a delicious meal in a beautiful restaurant. The Rack of Lamb was cooked to perfection. Service was great, which made for a very relaxed evening.

Just finished a beautiful dinner at Sherwoods! In fact best dinner I've ever had on Phillip Island! Limited menu but both dishes that were ordered were almost perfect! Highly recommended!
