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!

Not awful but not good either. Food is good pub standard and prices are quite reasonable reflecting this standard. Wine list is pricey but very limited with very average wines from other places and not much at all from what is a great wine region. Half of what is on offer is not available. Staff are very pleasant but lack... More

Always worth a visit! We have been to Sherwoods a few times now and have never been disappointed! We had a booking for 4 people for dinner, the menus was fairly diverse, all of us were happy, service was great and there was a large function and the kitchen could still provide well presented consistent plates. The wine list is... More

We had a small family get together. Staff were fantastic with a warm friendly greeting. All the meals were excellent. We had beef, chicken and seafood and would recommend everything off the menu.

This restaurant is a must, the formal table settings and crisp white tablecloths absolute delight. Food and service faultless, an enjoyable evening cocktails meals that are full of flavour and texture.Dessert a must the "sticky date pudding" divine. Sherwood's is quaint and small restaurant bookings essential. Handy hint fully licensed, great selections of wines etc. Will be back.

Dined her last night and very pleasant. I had the lamb shank with creamy mash. Glad I only ordered 1 shank as it was huge and was perfect for a freezing winters night. My hi band had the porterhouse with red wine jus. He enjoyed his, said flavor very good but he is usually a fillet steak person so found... More

My family and I go to Sherwoods for special occasion and the food is always up to standard. The staff are lovely and so is the location. The Lamb Shanks are definitely one to try!
