Pizzeria
The Whiskery is the cellar door for Bellarine Distillery. The original farm shed that has been fully renovated, which basically means the whole thing was pulled apart and put back together! The end result is a rustic and inviting space to have a yarn over a cocktail, gin or whisky with friends.
During warmer days the gardens and decks provide a relaxing environment and during the colder months a spot beside the fire is most enticing.
Primarily our own Gins are on offer for consumption and sale, with the Whisky being available in due course - STAY TUNED. We also have a wider selection of whiskies also available for tasting. For those who wish to have an alternative to Gin or Whisky ( why? ) we do have a few of the local wines , beers and ciders available plus some soft options for the drivers.
We have a limited food menu which includes a couple of simple pizzas and cheese & produce platters .
The Whiskery is an 18+years only venue . Pls bring ID or proof of residency.

The only thing stopping me giving a perfect score is the variety of food. The pizzas, however, were amazing. Great gins as well

Understaffed. Very disappointed with the service. We had a table of 10 and it took 50 mins to get our first drink and half an hour to get a second one. It was nice that we received 2 complimentary pizzas, but that was after we came up to order about on the fourth time. It didn’t make sense how you payed for a drink only to wait 30 mins to receive it-especially when sitting times are limited. I was really looking forward to this part of the bellarine experience, but left the sitting early and felt very underwhelmed. Very expensive for poor service.

Booked a table for 6, then was put in a corner with a couch and a lounge chair
Had to use a dining chair as a table ?Couldn’t hear each others conversation. Service was poor as we had to wait over 30 mins to get staff attention.
Very disappointed .

The 2 hour time limit is really bad. You only start to enjoy yourself and next minute you are kicked out. Need to get rid of time limit or make it 4 hour minimum.

Been coming here annually from Melbourne since they opened. Great Bellarine option for either drinks or a light meal/snack and works well for couples or a group. Love that you can bring dogs and sit outside. Be sure to try the gin tasting which just keeps getting better every time we visit.

Everything was spot on but if sitting inside just way too noisy and can’t hear what people are saying in your group. Such a shame when you haven’t seen friends for so long and you have to get them to repeat themselves otherwise everything else ticks the boxes

Beautiful place with amazing atmosphere. Could do with a little bit more of a range of food options for those not there for a drink, however the food that was available was really good and the gin was delicious! Highly recommend going with few friends for a relaxing afternoon.
