This place is a real gem. It is so popular that at times you battle to get a parking spot or a table to sit at- which says something for the place and its popularity. Food is excellent, it is licensed, there is a great "museum" at the back as well as a variety of shops selling everything from "nic nacs" to clothes, lollies. children's clothes and kitchenware. Good outdoor area and well worth visiting. Staff are very friendly and helpful too.
My wife and I hosted an aged relative here during a drive to the South coast.It was lunchtime and the place was very crowded (school holidays). We had dined here a few times in the past and it had been OK.I had a meat pie and coffee and my wife and her mother a toasted sandwich.The pie was essentially unedible - the crust could not be cut with a knife, was brittle and hard. I therefore discarded the crust and tackled the contents. This was not a fresh pie, dry/sticky aged ? beef, stringy texture. I had a couple of mouthfulls and left the rest.My wife had asked for my coffee to be very hot - it was luke warm at best and very average flavor.The toasted sandwich was, according to my wife, "just OK" - but it's difficult to ruin a toasted sandwich.I had planned on complaing but there was a long queue and would have required a long wait. We skipped out.Busy is not an excuse for poor quality.We wont be back!
Best lamb & curry pie I've ever had. Would've had another one if I had time. Iced coffee needed work but ok.
We stopped at the Woolshed on our way to and from Albany. It is a great pit stop with some shopping, tourist information, maps, bathrooms and cafe. On the way to Albany we had coffee and scones which were delicious. On the way home my daughter had scrambled eggs on toast which was nice but a little pricey for what it was. I ordered raisin toast which was burnt and bland.
The Woolshed at Williams was well worth a visit , a very interesting and informative attraction but we were then served a tastey burger in a very , very stale burger bun . Sloppy management .
We have stopped at the Woolshed many times over the years and the food and coffee is always of a very high standard.The staff are very friendly, their coffee is good and th homemade muffins and cakes are delicious.You must try the sausage rolls the best I have ever tasted as were the pies.Enjoy a walk around the quaint shops.
Easy to stop here and have a coffee or a meal. Other shops within the complex allow for a browse. Clothing shop stocks predominantly woollen clothing reflecting one of the main agricultural industries in this area. Lovely to see local people actively promoting their town and encouraging people to take a mini break and refresh before they continue on their way.
Woollen apparel and accessories, local wines and foods, arts and souvenirs are among the items that you will be able to find at The Williams Woolshed. Was able to see the Austallian Wool Industry in the Shearer's Yarn, the Shearing Museum at the Woolshed. We had to try the Australian meatpie, but was not very impressed with the taste thereof. Chips however was fresh and nice.
160km from Perth along Albany Highway, It's a complex made up of 4-5 shops (kitchenware, lollies, clothing, kids wear), the visitor centre, toilets and a restaurant. It's worth a stop - the food is really good and the staff are customer focused, polite and professional. On today's menu they had grilled barramundi, Thai red curry, pies of many sorts (mushroom, vegetable, meat), toasted sandwiches, burgers and so much more. We opted for scones with jam and cream and a much needed coffee. If you want to buy gifts then there's plenty of choice - every age catered for.The visitor cent was manned by a friendly girl who was only too happy to look up an address on the Internet and provide directions.The Shearing Yarn is out the back - it's an old shearing shed turned into a history and educational piece. Entry to the Shearing Yarn is by donation. Plenty of parking and wheelchair/pram accessible.
The Woolshed offers tasty food for purchase from their cafe and a wide range of interesting sweets, souvenirs, clothes and local produce to buy. A nice place for a short break during a long car journey.
