The service was a little unusual, but friendly and prompt. Food was excellent. Felt like home cooked, only tastier. Good wine list and wonderful atmosphere in old woolshed. Great for families and couples alike. Definitely book ahead to get in!

This is the scene that greets you as you arrive at the Woolshed Restaurant at Rawnsley Park. With its cosy combustion stove and its outback themed decor, its warm and welcoming atmosphere envelops you as you enter.The Woolshed Restaurant truly is an impressive structure but it’s the striking interior which captivates you.
