The Woods, Sydney

The Woods is Hamish Ingham’s latest restaurant which can be found inside the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney. It is on the ground floor and the restaurant was a lot bigger than I had anticipated. For a week night, the restaurant was relatively full and I love the open kitchen where you can see the chef in action. The menu is vast, and centred around good quality and fresh produce. I was here with some uni friends, our last meal together and it was definitely wonderful.

I started with the crispy chicken wing, Jerusalem artichokes and pickled shallots. The chicken wings were excellent, crispy and incredibly tender and the Jerusalem artichokes and pickled shallots a wonderful complement.

T had the soup, from memory it was cauliflower soup. I didn’t have any of this but T seemed to have enjoyed it.

C had the Ash seasoned ocean trout, smoked trout roe & parsley salad – this looked superb but unfortunately I didn’t have any of it either. He did say that it was pretty good, he didn’t like the parsley salad, but then again, he is not really a vegetable kind of guy! The brioche was tasty he said.

For mains, I couldn’t go past the slow cooked beef short rib, pickled shallots and pepperberry sauce. The ribs are deboned and it was incredibly tender that it just fell apart. The sauce was a little rich for my liking but the beef was definitely excellent.

T had the olive wood roasted lamb, sticky carrots and pressed potato. The roasted lamb was a little gamey T thought, but nevertheless it was nice.

C had the Grasslands beef fillet, smoked eggplant, black garlic and parsnip chips. The beef was incredibly tender, and the parsnip chips were delicious.

We also ordered a side of roast pumpkin, toasted walnuts and midnight moon – wow. This was definitely my favourite! Definitely could have eaten the whole thing on my own!

I was getting full by this stage but thought we would share the earl grey tea tart which was extremely creamy and not too sweet. We really enjoyed the tart.

Service was excellent and food was delicious! Thought it would be a bit noisy but it was surprisingly ok. Will definitely be back next time.
