Sitting with a cocktail on the sun-drenched back balcony, I wonder why it’s taken me a year to return to Bloodwood. The cocktail list contains some gems (my smoky breakfast juice notwithstanding); the beer list is enormous by most restaurant standards; and the wine list produces gems like the 2015 Ravensworth 'The Grainery' ($67). The latter is an utterly approachable, field blend of marsanne, roussanne, viognier and chardonnay from theread more
Went here for a group dinner farewell recently. If you are a meat eater then this place is like meat in heaven. The food and drink list was incredibly long and varied. We had the banquet, which was really quality unlike the banquet options you can often get. We were seated under the hustle of the restaurant in a cool little area (which was only let down by being Close to the bathrooms). Our waitress was lovely.
We took our overseas guest to Bloodwood to rest our feet and feast. I was happy to see that they were able to seat us at short notice on a Saturday night. It was quite early to be doing dinner for most... but in saying that the place was quite booming and already half full. Don't be fooled from the entrance, there's a lot of seating upstairs and downstairs towards the back of the restaurant. We started off Polenta Chips with Gorgonzola Sauce. this dish was faultless.

Favourite bar and restaurant in Newtown. A happy, funky vibe run by young staff who care about providing classy service. I love sitting at the front on a sunny day with a coffee or glass of wine watching the eclectic Newtown world go by, or chatting with friends over a delicious dinner.
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!
