Cuisine: New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

The Sherwood's kitchen team takes inspiration from its beautiful surrounds and the bounty offered up by the changing seasons. A deep connection with nature and our surrounds define the food at Sherwood and the spirit of Alice Waters looms large.

Their recent kitchen garden is set to provide a steady flow of fresh, flavour-filled, organic produce from which the ingredients required for each service are harvested.

Along with ingredients foraged on their morning walks they collaborate with local farms and independent growers to bring you the finest sustainable produce that our region has to offer.

This same philosophy extends to their bar and wine programme where the very best of New Zealand’s independent producers are shown alongside rare and obscure gems from artisans around the world.

They work with boutique and family-owned wine producers and specialise in natural wine that describes a sense of place and time.

The cocktail list also reflects the seasons and celebrates the scents, textures and memories of our favourite moments and places.

The Sherwood was beautiful, the food delicious and service excellent. It has a seasonal menu, largely stocked from the garden which we went for a walk through after eating. The menu is designed for sharing and we split the pesto pasta, mussels and grilled broccoli which was perfect for lunch for 2. Alongside these we enjoyed the "natural" wines on offer - sourced straight from the vineyard. We will definitely be back.

Absolute perfection! We were sat on a table that looked out at the gorgeous view, the food was delicious and the service was fantastic. We were staying at the Sherwood and ended up dining there twice more during our stay! Highly recommend!

Beautiful evening spent at the Sherwood. The venison was a delicious smokey, melt in your mouth dish, which we had with warm sourdough, house cured salmon and twice cooked potatoes - and were all perfect. The service was nice and low-key. We will be re-booing in the very near future. 11/10 thanks again guys!

It was our first time in sherwood and we love it all! from the service to the the essence of the whole place! The food was stunning, very tasty and beautifully plated. It is good to know everything is organic and grow in their own garden! Recommended 100%

Wow! I have to say, that was one of the best meals I have eaten in a very long time, absolutely perfectly delicious. The flavours were exquisite and so different to what you find anywhere else. I have dined at Sherwood previously for dinner, but I think I might be a convert to lunch, not because the food is better at lunch but simply because in daylight you get to see your food, are not distracted by alcohol and can really taste each flavour. I couldn't recommend it more. Amazing. Thanks to First Table for encouraging us to get out more and try new restaurants.

From the moment we walked in, we loved everything about the Sherwood. Beautiful restaurant, stunning views from our table and the staff were top class. So helpful and kind and knew the menu inside out. I've never experienced this kind of service before in Queenstown.
The food was such great quality, we loved our main dishes above everything else we tried.
Would highly recommend. Thank you to the staff for such an enjoyable evening.

Nina (our waitress) was an outstanding host and made us feel very welcome.
It was a particularly busy evening but the service (and food) was fabulous.
I turned up with my infant son and Nina not only accommodated us comfortably and provided a toy for my son but she also made sure we were inclusive of the whole dining experience. Thank you Sherwood for a lovely evening.

Excellent food, a few good options but slightly limited for vegetarians. A very complete wine list. The menu and wine list need to be explained which must be annoying for the staff on every table every day :-)

Food was great and lovely cocktails, service was even better. Joshua was our waiter and he was just amazing. He tried to help me to find a wine that I would like and he ended up serving me an amazing and very sweet cocktail, he also helped us with the menu and suggestions. I would definitely come back!

Waitress explained the menu on offer. Food was nice, we tried the soup for starters which was delicious. For main had the chicken and beef dishes with a brussel sprouts and bacon side dish. No room left for a sweet! All very nice, would go again.

Great tasting food

- dined at Sherwood on

Warm, cosy, wait staff friendly and knowledgeable, our party really wanted dessert, staff provided menu but did not return to table for order, we left without dessert and coffee. It seemed to us that they were one or two wait staff short to meet demands of diners.
Our main was very good. Would recommend.

Mussels were fresh, beef steak and chicken was really tender and tasty. Had brussels sprout for side dish and it was nicely done as well.
Will definitely come back again!

Fabulous!!!! We had fresh bread as a starter which we remembered from last time that we loved. Same this time. Their bbq chicken was the best chicken I’ve ever had and ribeye steak was fantastic too. The autumn menu is a treat!

Great night at Sherwood - food was yummy, seasonal and many items from their gardens. They made a big deal of the aged beef which was yummy but the hype ended up making it feel a little lack luster - tasty and a good dish but didn't rock my world :) The staff were lovely although we had to ask to place our order then at the end of our meal got asked (very politely I might say) if we could move as they had others waiting for our table. There were other tables available in the restaurant so although it was a "nicer" table we were a little surprised to be asked to move. Not a biggy and overall we did have a fabulous night.

As always Sherwood didn't disappoint. The service and food is always excellent and we always have a great experience.
We started with the pate which is delicious and we highly recommend this dish.
We tried the BBQ chicken for our main, wow, it was amazing! Along with pickled vegetables and the pumpkin and greens sides, you can't go wrong!
Creme brûlée for dessert - perfection.
The cocktails are great too and definitely worth trying.
We'll be back many more times!

This place has such a balance of amazing food and amazing service that compliments each other so well. And to top it off the surrounding is lovely! All of our dishes were stand out! Every time i come here I am in awe of my experience. I came with two friends who had never been there and both of them said after that this was their new favorite restaurant!

Would highly recommend Sherwood for any occasion!

- dined at Sherwood on

We had a nice time. Service was great, super friendly staff and good atmosphere. Starter (chicken liver pate) was delicious, main course (venison) was a bit overcooked aswell as side (grilled corn), but dessert (vanilla brulee) was fantastic - maybe a bit bigger would be better. Definitely will come back again and recommend to others aswell.

Quality food, quality service!
Very enjoyable meal and atmosphere
