Delicious cabinet food and a lovely setting with plenty of outside parking.
The younger customer service staff were very friendly and pleasant. However the more mature staff member manning the till could do with some customer service training.

Just nice simple food set in a rustic old barn setting with a lovely roaring farm to keep you warm in the winter.

When you travel from Wellington to Hamilton through State Highway 1, you will not miss this place. If one just takes a glance at this cafe, one may not feel interested to visit. However, one should stop by and come inside, and feels the great atmosphere and enjoy the various delicatessen and drinks they serve. The food is great in taste and the hot drinks are just right. Another thing that will make you want to visit again is their friendly staff and last but not least, the price is affordable. I certainly would like to recommend anyone travelling this route to stop by and try this cafe...

...food and service - not so much. On approaching the Woolshed my anticipation was high for a nice lunch out. The place looks rustic and interesting - it is what it says on the box! A lovely rural setting just off the main highway, plenty of parking, spacious and warm inside and with views out of the window like a picture postcard. We got there early so there weren't many people there.
The staff were ok but certainly not the most welcoming, not a smile to be seen. I ordered a cheese and tomato panini; it was very mediocre. All in all, a bit disappointing.
