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.

Levon.

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.

From the time that we booked on-line, the staff interaction was efficient and professional. We received an offer of an earlier booking, which we accepted. Staff were polite and efficient.
Covid conditions meant that we were in the bar. The lounge has a nice ambience for next time that we visit.

We were put on two small round tables in the bar, which was not ideal. It would have been appreciated if you could have informed me that we would not be able to eat in the restaurant. The food is always good but the prices are no longer great value, especythe drinks.

We ordered garlic pizza for starters, It was a piece of stale pita bread that broke up into pieces when you tried to eat it. Ordered slow cooked lamb rump, it wasnt slow cooked, it had been thrown on a grill and was underdone with blood running out of it, it was tough as an old boot. The room was cold and uninviting.

Very Nice meal in quiet surroundings. House wine a bit expensive and coffee not good but this was mentioned and we were not charged for our coffee.
We were disappointed not to have the Tuesday special menu but quite understood why this was not available. We regularly dine at the Vic and always enjoy our meal there.
