The new owner has only had this restaurant 6 weeks and I’m excited to see what she does.

We arrived on a very cold Sunday winters night and it’s not peak season.
The venue is lovely and the food was good, my husband and had a table by the fire and tunes were playing that we enjoyed, the waitress was very attentive and friendly.

The entree and mains were huge, we couldn’t eat all of it, but we both enjoyed the flavours and looking forward to coming back when upstairs is opened with live music and fab beer garden.

I’m looking forward to see how this place transforms

I took my family to lunch & had some of the best fish I’d had for years, the batter was light and crispy. The girls’ steak sandwich was massive & tender, pizza was better than the one we had day before in Lygon st & the shank was a tasty good old fashioned hearty meal for a blustery cold day. We finished it off with some excellent French champagne. Well worth a visit next time you’re in cowes.

Ate here over the weekend. Arrived reasonable early, restaurant about half full. Ordered the mussel linguine and an entree- after 45 minutes waitress came back stating they had run out of mussels. A little perplexed by this. We ordered the lamb shanks instead and whilst the meat was fall off the bone the flavours were lackluster. Entree was also very slow to arrive. A tip - most dishes contained garlic so if you are not a lover of garlic not the place to go.

Previously I have left an awesome review for Sherwoods, not today. We wanted to go out for a special birthday dinner, 7 of us - with the limited menu of about 6 main meals we were promptly told that two of them were sold out, ummmm, okay no problem. The waitress comes around without an order pad, wow we thought she must have an fantastic memory, either that or she's wired, unfortunately its was neither of these, her memory is stuffed. 1 of us ordered chicken, oh dear under cooked in the middle, another ordered salmon, oh dear got delivered battered fish instead, 4 of us ordered steak, mind you they were $38 each! oh dear all of them were wrong :0 FFS, one of the steaks was removed with the promise of a quick return of a rare medium rather than the well done delivery, oh dear didn't come back until EVERYONE had finished their meals. The one with the undercooked chicken shared the battered fish that should have been salmon. We had to buy frozen pizzas on the way home because 3 of use were starving. So sad used to be my favourite island restaurant :(

It’s the start of winter and Philip island is deader than a week in Canberra... lol.
I came to Sherwood’s because I was hungry and didn’t want to stray too far from where we were staying, Amy was our waitress and she was super sweet and very attentive, the food was excellent, the atmosphere as well as the wine. Will definitely recommend this place and will definitely come back here! Thanks
