The GOODS from Sherwood

We are enviably perched at our downtown’s prime people-watching crossroads of Douglas Street and Pandora Avenue where we be hosting the full spectrum of our fresh-faced city with the recklessly optimistic and hospitality-forward approach that can only be expected from Shane Devereaux. In keeping with the tradition of Habit, we’re in the business of building a long time community institution – one that begins with executing a tight and thoughtful food and beverage program in a progressive and accessible social space.
Sherwood is first and foremost a gathering place for the city. That means employing staff who know how to make customers and staff alike feel genuinely welcome, this is our mandate. It also means that we plan to take care of our team by not only a creating a positive and inclusive working environment but also offering a competitive pay and benefit package.

A bit about our approach to food…
The guiding philosophy behind our food is a commitment to playfulness and accessibility. Our chef’s inspired approach subscribes to the law of diminishing returns – a keen sense of that delicate line where the effort and ingredients outweigh the impact and experience of a dish. Our goal at Sherwood is providing a tightly edited slate of memorable food where every component has its place and purpose and nothing more. In accomplishing this we’re devoted to locating the heart of each dish in distinctive house made components and thoughtfully selected ingredients that take full advantage of our friends and neighbours and our region’s diverse terrior. At Sherwood, every dish has the opportunity provide the perfect bite and introduce exciting flavour changes, clever use of spice, acidity and texture and all will be presented with utmost simplicity on a one page menu that rightfully reads easy and encouraging for anyone.
