For too long the northern suburbs have been neglected by diners. For too long the inner-city has held the spotlight. But no longer, because riding onto the scene to save the day is Wooden Horse in Clayfield. All the charm of the inner-city – just with better parking.
With its French doors, wooden floorboards and rustic, old world charm – Wooden Horse is one of Brisbane’s best kept secrets. With the capacity to host private dinners, cocktail events and sit down degustations, Wooden Horse is proving itself to be a standout in the Brisbane food scene. Headed by two brothers (both chefs) Wooden Horse uses the freshest local produce in order to create classic dishes with a modern twist, with no room for compromising quality or flavour.
The menu features favourites including share plates, chacuterie and brick oven pizzas. Pig out on their stand out dishes like the low and slow braised pig belly with carrot puree and red wine pear or the olive oil poached salmon with king oyster mushrooms.
Nothing satisfies quite like a steak, and Wooden Horse have three to choose from on Wednesday’s steak night special. Whether you like rump, striploin or rib fillet, the team has you covered. Pair your protein with two sides, choose from options like char-grilled market greens, porcini salted shoe string fries and Italian slaw and slather it with veal bone jus, whiskey cream or béarnaise. TAKE OUR MONEY!
Wooden Horse also has their pizzas available on Uber Eats, perfect for lazy evenings and hangovers (we’re converted!)
So whether you want to impress your latest squeeze with a delicious dinner or show off to your nearest and dearest with a cocktail party, Wooden Horse has the space and menu for any occasion.
