Delicious beef cheek - best meal! Staff were friendly and the space is large so accommodated a group of 15 for us. Drinks in the bar afterwards were nice but it was very loud. Great location before attending Etihad Stadium!

Went to the Woolshed for a business function recently and found the location, view, staff and food great for a group event. It wasn't too noisy and the staff were attentive to a number of different requirements from the table.
