You might walk in the doors of Wooden Horse Restaurant & Bar simply seeking to pique your curiosity about Clayfield's newest eatery; however once you experience the buzzing atmosphere, you'll want to stay for much, much more. And if you don't believe us, maybe their Beatles-themed cocktail list will twist your arm.
Yes, a Twist n' Shout (bourbon, maple, lemon, vanilla, egg white and cinnamon) or Strawberry Fields Forever (sparkling wine, Chambord and strawberries) can be yours to savour if you love the fab four. Even if you don't, the ode to Britpop's best goes down nicely with the modern Italian menu.
When it comes to food, you'll feast on share plates and mains that boast all the favourite staples — cob loaf, chorizo and pork belly among them — without jumping on the trend-centric bandwagon. Our pick to kick things off is the Wooden Meat Board's delicious serving of wagyu bresaola, serrano, manchego, Sicilian olives and house grissini — aka the perfect thing to consume while sitting inside Wooden Horse's appropriately timber-heavy interior.
