- Value for money
If you go down to the woods today.. A humble exterior gives way to an enchanted gastropub in a secluded section of Sydney Road. The decor in all areas is quirky, eclectic and interesting but none more so than the 'Mad-Hatters Tea Party' vibe in the upstairs dining room. Including life-size wooden toy soldiers, kitschy lanterns, skulls, masks and booth seating you feel you have entered another world of fun and delight. Serving up an all-Victorian drinks list, The Woodlands delivers the finest produce Victoria has to offer including; 7 tap beers and over 50 in the bottle; A challenging wine list with a depth and range to suit all - including some more obscure varietals; and freshest ingredients sourced from as close to home as possible. All of this is delivered in a casual but attentive environment. Best dish: Southern style fried buttermilk chicken ribs, jalapeño & tequila mayonnaise.
