Goodwood Park Hotel, otherwise known as 'The Goody,' is a friendly, relaxed and contemporary venue that offers a generous bistro selection of modern Australian cuisine. The hospitable staff are sure to make your experience an enjoyable one, whether you choose to dine inside the bistro or in the chic outdoor area. The menu includes a good selection of seafood dishes, including oysters, as well as steaks, chicken, pizza pasta and kids meals. Lunch is served daily from 12pm-2:30pm and dinner from 5:30pm.
The food was really nice here with very generous portion sizes. I can't give this anything more than 2 stars though because despite having booked well ahead for a group it took 1.5 hours for our food to come out - without any prior warning or the like. Given especially that this was a celebration primarily with older members in the group this was unacceptable and really put a negative dampener on the whole night. I don't know why, and staff were semi-apologetic but really that's not good enough and I won't be back.
Well, I can't say that I have ever been a regular at this place, despite it once being on my way home from university (though in those days I had my regular watering hole), however I have graced its bars a couple of times. One time was straight after an exam, which made its location very handy since it was a walking distance from the venue. I also met a couple of friends here once for a drink, namely because it was a different pub to our normal haunts. It does have a couple of really nice beer gardens, and has certainly changed since I first came here. They have a reasonable selection of beers, as well as a restaurant and a sports bar, though there was nothing that great about this place that would draw us back all that often. Still, it isn't all that bad and I am certain not to object if a friend suggests that we come here for a drink.
