The Woodhouse Restaurant
Great service by our waiter. Great produce and great cooking. The steak was so good, I ate it on it's own first. My wife had the Prawn and Octopus, which was cooked to perfection.
We have no complaints about the food, our Cape Grim fillets were lovely, one with Bearnaisse sauce one with wine jus, the hassellback potatoes were creamy but not as crunchy as anticipated. The choice of two sides was needed. Wine list is extensive, with lots of reds to go with the great meats. My complaint was the position of our table, right in the front of the restaurant, in a window overlooking the street. We left before dessert as I had a splitting headache from the combination of traffic lights, the flashing coloured lights of the Kebab caravan across the road and the lights of Forty Winks across the intersection. There was no 'feel' of the fire in the place, nor of flame to cook the beef, nor did we see the bar area or the lovely ceiling. I booked 3 weeks prior and felt we were given the worst table in the place, maybe I'm wrong and that is a prime seat...in Bendigo.
The Woodhouse Restaurant was recommended to us by a number of people and it did not disappoint. The decor was very tasteful and the vibe was just right. We were given plenty of time to review the menu and wine list and our waitress was extremely helpful assisting us with our choices. I enjoyed a couple of glasses of a lovely Reisling and my other half enjoyed his cider. The steaks we chose were first rate, with a beautiful taste. All in all we had a wonderful experience and will definitely be returning when we visit Bendigo again
A perfect place to dine and celebrate good times with friends, family or business meetings. Staff are always amazing, food are great and ambiance is superb! Will keep coming back!
Very good food, service and environment. Excellent restaurant.
Amazing food & service as usual. My favourite restaurant in Bendigo. Love the new spring menu.
We enjoyed our evening. The food and the atmosphere was amazing. Staff were very attentive.
Food was delicious, excellent service best restaurant in Bendigo.
Amazing food, excellent service and knowledge by staff and great atmosphere. We will be back!!
Compact and cosy inside. Service was relaxed and attentive. Had the rib-eye, it was cooked to perfection and delicious. Sides were tasty and good size. Drink menu extensive. Bit noisy due to the hard surfaces inside but nothing crazy. Would definitely recommend to visitors to Bendigo.
Absolutely wonderful efficient and friendly service in a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere.
Food is of a very high standard and quality.
We keep coming back and have never been disappointed. It’s one of our favourite restaurants. The best steak and desert, highly recommend
Loved everything about our outing to Bendigo. Woodhouse was amazing and well worth the drive from Geelong. Will definitely visit this restaurant again as well as recommend to friends and family
Had a wonderful experience at the WH recently. So hard to find a nice restaurant, with adequate noise levels for talking with friends. Service was great, we had a 92 year old with us and we found food, service and music all very good. Definitely a great experience.
The Woodhouse was a lovely place to go and eat. Yummy good and the atmosphere was relaxing and service I can not fault. We will be back next time we come to Bendigo.
Always enjoy dinning out at The Woodhouse and would visit more often but the cost of the evening limits me to a couple of visits annually. Having said that, I appreciate you get what you pay for and accept that
Great food and service. Tasting plate for two was an excellent introduction to the menu for first timers and offered good value for money. A bit noisy and not very intimate, if going for a special occasion maybe request a quieter spot. Came away smelling of woodsmoke.
Amazing restaurant with a great selection on the menu.
Overall this is a lovely place to go out for a special meal on Bendigo. The steaks were tender and very well cooked. The only niggle l have is that when paying a decent price for a steak, the only vegetable included is a potato - you can order additional vegetables by the bowlful at approx $12 each (ie a bowl of cauliflower $12, a bowl of mushrooms $12 etc). A bit rude and it does boost the overall meal price up quite a bit for food that l believe should be served with the meat.
Lovely Food, just disappointed with the change of the existing lunch special which we have really enjoyed in the past. The change in options weren't appealing to our group.
Great food & fantastic service. One of the best places to eat in Bendigo.
Good night, great service, if a little ‘rushed’, great food, the fish special was special, local wine list very satisfying, value is only thing that puts the brakes on a little.
We had a wonderful night out excellent food service and atmosphere. The staff were impeccable and very pleasant overall a great night.
We received amazing service, food was incredible and would highly recommenced to anyone!
This must surely be the most outstanding restaurant in Bendigo.I now have a friend who dines there on every trip to town.(and takes me for company!!)
They were so helping and understanding when we asked for no tomatoes or berries due to allergy. They wentbout of their way to make it memorable. Thank you so much.
Outstanding food and service. beautiful night of dining, food presented so elegantly. Top service 💯
Excellent food menu and a good choice of quality wines. Very good service.
For value for money, our Express Lunch option was great! We left feeling sated but not overfull after the 3-course meal. Our best meal out since The Duck and Waffle in London in 2016!
Possibly the best meal and dining experience I’ve enjoyed in the last ten years.
Delicious food excellent surrounds! A lovely experience for our anniversary dinner
The food is always of excellent quality and presentation. Staff are appropriately attentive.
As always the food and service were absolutely amazing! lunch menu great value
I. Enjoy the woodhouse every time I go however ventured out along with my Pizza and amazing desert plate to add additional items . I need to be honest in saying although my usual was as great as ever the chips were meant to be sea salt and rosemary and were no different to MacDonald with no flavour . The Mac and cheese was extremely greasey although possibly understandable with different blends . Will be back but for usual dishes. .
We all said that we had the best steak in quite some time.
The food and service was great. We find every time we go to the Woodhouse the service and food is amazing
Food & service excellent 4 of us dined & we all were very impressed would definitely go back if visiting Bendigo again! Gr8 wine selection from the sommelier & good wine list. Steak cooked perfectly would highly recommended to any friends & beetroot ravioli was light filling & delicious
Never disappoints! Consistency of the steaks is the highlight and the new 'roasted banana' dessert was amazing!
Wonderful food lamb was cooked to perfection, paired with the potatoes, mint and feta a match made in heaven. Strawberry cheesecake to finish had an intense strawberry flavor delicious. Will be dining again very soon!
Great food and excellent service.
Service first class and fantastic food . Really enjoyed the experience
