Fittingly located on Hindley Street in Adelaide, Woolshed on Hindley is a good place to enjoy various pub foods and a wide range of beers and wines. It is also famous for its mechanical bull. The pub offers various deals between Monday and Thursday nights, such as two Schnitzels for $20 on Tuesdays, to make eating there more affordable. There is also a lunch menu in which some of their dinner items are available at a slightly reduced price.
A dish we like to order at pub-style restaurants, the Chicken Schnitzel was very well done with a crisp coating setting off the perfectly cooked flesh. Accompanying the schnitzel was chips fried to golden brown with fluffy interiors and a refreshing salad to help balance out the fried schnitzel. The pepper sauce we chose had the right degree of peppery flavour.

For those that prefer beef, a Beef Schnitzel was also available. The size of the schnitzel was generous but we found it a bit too tough for our tastes. The mushroom sauce we ordered as an extra complemented the Beef Schnitzel well and contained a good amount of mushrooms. Aside from the two sauces we chose, Dianne sauce and gravy are also available along with various toppings such as Parmigiana and the pub's special topping of sweet chilli, sour cream, avocado and cheese.

Quite eye-catching in appearance, the squid featured in their Salt and Pepper Squid was not rubbery and had the level of salt and pepper flavour that we desired. The chips served with the squid were done as well as the ones that came with the schnitzels. Some aioli was served with the dish for dipping the squid in to tone down the saltiness of the squid a bit.

The wooden floors and tables gave the pub a rustic feel. A covered carpark not too far from the pub provides convenient parking as it can be a bit hard finding parking space on Hindley Street.
