I have been here when this eatery was The Woodbox and loved it! First time as Angus Road Eatery. The staff/service was friendly and attentive. However, the food was disappointing. For entree I had the Salt and Pepper Squid, which tasted neither salty or peppery, but more like they were coated in corn chips. For my main I had the... More

The menu is quite limited. We shared a glass between two for the whole meal, despite asking the waitress for a second (clean) water glass...it never came. Then the coffee and beer arrived. The coffee was AWFUL. It was burnt and had coffee grinds left in the bottom. The food...firstly, we were served our meals after 2 other tables, even... More

Fresh, new decor. Lunch meals were good quality. Would like to see jug of iced water on arrival at our table. Lovely views over the countryside.

We took the family for a dinner out one evening. The menu had a variety of choices to please everyone. Including the younger members. The wine list was also extensive. On this occasion one of the bottle of wine was off and it was replaced without any fuss whatsoever. The staff was attentive and make you feel welcome and at... More

Our group found the food beautifully-presented & delicious. We had chosen a set menu with a good... More

Oh dear, what a disaster. I was part of a group of 12 that dined here. How excited was I to see duck breast on the menu! What a shame that when it arrived it was more like a rubber chicken. So tough the knife provided could barely butcher a slice off - and then when it did, I wished... More

Firstly, let me prefix my review by saying i've done a lot of fine dining and eaten in many Michelin starred restaurants. The Woodbox is fantastic, I simply can't understand the negative reviews, all I can assume is that these people wouldn't know a good restaurant if it jumped up and hit them in the face. Great food, good portion... More

My brother and I had a meal at the woodbox last Sunday. It was amazing. Some of the best meals I have ever eaten. Portion size was excellent (not too big or small), the creativity of the dishes were so clever and everything was cooked to perfection. The service was fantastic. The two waitresses that served us were helpful and... More
