Excellent food and Fantastic service!
We were lucky enough to have a night out for dinner while my parents took our girls away on a holiday. The food was excellent, our steaks were cooked to perfection! The garlic and cheese pizza was delicious and the Chocolate hazelnut brownie was decadent. The staff were extremely attentive and our waitresses Wendy and Claire were friendly, bubbly and happy to check to see we were enjoying our night. The pub is family friendly and even caters for your family puppy! Highly recommended and we will be back again! Thanks got a lovely night! 10/10 from us! Cheers!

Wonderful food and attentive service, our table was left to sit on our coffees for an hour after lunch and not hurried away, which we really appreciated.

Not enough staff, and those behind bar were new and needed someone experienced to assist them on a busy Sat night. All very kind, just very understaffed.

Being a local, the Vic has become my ‘go to’ place even by myself sometimes. Lovely friendly staff, excellent food and within walking distance. Home from home.

Had a pleasant evening, given the issues and the staff were very friendly and apologetic. The food was good but they forgot our entree, then brought the main while we were still eating the entree, said the chef didn't want to spoil the lamb, however this meant we didn't enjoy the lamb as much as we might have, particularly as the wine order did not arrive so we could drink it with the meal. Given this we would go again however we will think twice about going while COVID is around as the tables were too close and didn't allow for 1.5m distance between people seated.

My meal was quite tasty. I had the surf & turf Parma. It was quite noisy which made it difficult to have a conversation without talking loudly. The service was very good.

Our first time at the venue. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and the food we had was excellent, especially the chicken and mushroom pie! A shout out to the waitress who lives in Riddell's Creek (forgot her name) as she was very accommodating on our first ever visit and even showed us upstairs when we enquired as to how the upper floor was set up. All in all an excellent experience and we shall return as soon as we move into the Town in early 2021.

The past few times that we have been have been a bit disappointing. The service isnt as good as it used to be. We have had to call for service. The food came in good time, but no offer of more drinks at any time or coffee or dessert. Also the food was a bit bland, I ordered the Asian Salad and it had no flavour. The other diners also commented on their meals being bland. Very disappointing as prior to Covid it was fantastic.

Wonderful food, which arrived quickly great to have the kids fed first.

Unfortunately due to a last minute large group of diners the three wait staff were rushed off their feet so the usual wonderful service was lacking.

While parking is an issue the food menu was varied and plentiful choices for lunch. I had chicken shnitzel and my wife Barramundi. Tasty and well presented.

We had finished our drink well before our meal, so when our meals come we ordered them. To bad my boyfriend has finished his food before his drink even arrived.

So we literally had someone come take our order (food and drink once)

We we’re ushered to our table drink order taken & offered water which didn’t arrive & our waitress got lost somewhere at least 20 minutes before we got someone’s attention to order our meal . Meal very nice but service disappointing though staff very friendly just need to be more observant of what’s going on it wasn’t that busy & all other tables had had orders taken & we’re being served already . Would recommend but let people know service could be slow 🥴

Enjoyed lunch at the Vic twice now in the last month. The menu is incredible and such a great range in selection. The food is just perfectly prepared and the portion size on the plate is the best around the Macedon Ranges at the moment. Staff are kind, responsive and thrilled to cater for your needs.
We honestly can't wait to eat there again. Thanks Vic Hotel Woodend.

Our group of four enjoyed our dinner at The Vic. The staff are great as is the wine list full of tasty local wines. The food was a bit disappointing, but with better sides like a well dressed salad and a decent tartare sauce would have been a lot more interesting.
