Restaurant and Bar

Located on the increasingly trendy southern end of Newtown's King Street, the emphasis is on food for sharing.

The interior has an industrial influence to go with Newtown's semi-industrial past, but still sleek, nonetheless.

The menu is interesting and inviting along with a decent wine and cocktail selection.

Check the website for more info.

--TrueLocal description--
The CVs of the three chefs Jo Ward, Claire van Vuuren and Mitch Grady have something to do with Bloodwood?s busy tables. Buzz is all about the polenta chips with the crunch of fries and the subtle nutty flavour brought out by Gorgonzola dipping sauce ? they are deserving of much praise. Get ready for full-on flavour as soon as  you unwrap baked kingfish from its nifty paper bundle.

    Banquet was great, best meal I've had in a while with perfectly cooked food that is unique, modern and unpretentious.
    $55 per person including over 5 dishes and dessert. They have an extensive list of 'fancy' beers and wine too.
    Only take bookings for groups of 8 or more and it get super busy!
  • One of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time! The restaurant had amazing atmosphere, the staff were amazing, the food was exciting! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. I went with my partner and it was the perfect date night.
  • Not impressed. I was here the other night and was left unattended for nearly 15 minutes. That's unacceptable for me and despite the nice wine and food, I'd expect better attitude the next time I visit; if I visit.

    It's a bit pricey too.
  • beautiful food and wine. music is too loud and sometimes the staff can get a bit pushy. worth a try
  • A bit pricey but totally worth it for the atmosphere and the menu which they make an effort to keep interesting. The food was a hit, the wines were a bit of a miss actually.. This place would spring to mind if I wanted to entertain some out of town friends.
  • Great food, nice wine list, but the bottle mark-ups are outrageous. I do like the atmosphere and the service, though.
  • Love Bloodwood. Just never get in there enough! - Great service from friendly & excellent staff, delicious bites, fantastic choice of beverages ... what more could you ask for!
  • Decided to check out this new bar on a Saturday night, which meant a very long queue to get a table. We decided to do the wait, left our number with the maitre d and hung out elsewhere in Newtown for about an hour before we got the call that a table was available. The staff are genuinely attentive and friendly, although the poor maitre d seemed run off her feet!

    We ordered two sharing plates, chicken wings and polenta chips. Both were speedily delivered and delicious, though the chips were a touch dry. There's a huge range of drinks, and the Iced Tea with Pimms is especially excellent.

    Great spot to enjoy a late night drink and snacks, it can get pretty noisy upstairs but the intimate environment and friendly staff make it a place I'd happily visit again.
  • Hot new place in Newtown. Always packed. Great decor and well meaning, attentive staff make this new stylish Newtown eatery the place du jour until the next new hot place opens. This will be the first of many new quality new food and drink offerings at this south end of King Street. Its gonna be the new hot area of the inner west

    The food is really well priced considering the high standard of the dishes. Go there for the sharing dishes and you won't be disappointed. You can book the downstairs ' private 'dining room but theres no air con ( filthy hot it was in March) and its also the corridor to the toilets. The outside area of Bloodwood is a great spot on a warm night to eat drink and catch up with friends. Give Bloodwood a go. It will only get better!
