Steakhouse
Enjoy a wood-fired experience.
Winner of Savour Awards best Steak Restaurant for Victoria and Tasmania 2018.

Smell the delicious smokiness of Bendigo’s only redgum char-grill and wood-fired oven, where we use the sweet-smelling applewood from nearby Harcourt.

The Woodhouse specialises in premium beef: grass-fed and dry-aged meats, cooked just the way you like. We champion Central Victoria’s best local produce, crafting the dishes using strictly top quality ingredients. 

The Woodhouse is proud of our welcoming professional service. Enjoy a pre-dinner beverage in front of the open fire, with many craft beers, quality cocktails and a great range of wines on offer. The well-priced local drops round off this exceptional offering; chosen to match the delicious menu perfectly.
The temperature controlled alfresco dining area, fully protected from the elements offers a choice of internal or external seating.

Our menu is updated seasonally and available on our website.

We are never disappointed when we dine at the Woodhouse. It is always consistently an amazing experience. They nail it all!! - great food, excellent service and we really like the renovations to the interior. Thought it was great before but they have taken it to a higher level! Great job team Woodhouse, keep up the excellent work!

The Woodhouse is a fine dining experience not to be missed. From the moment you walk in the door, the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is inviting. The food was as we expected and left us wanting more, simply because it tasted so good. The kids meals are good value and also a good size quality meal. The service was and is always an experience to remember. We left totally satisfied with our experience and will return again. I would encourage anyone who likes to dine out to try the Woodhouse. The menu has a great variety without having too many options to choose from. The to share options are a great way to taste multiple plates. We normally have the dessert tasting plate, but this time chose to have the cheese plate which was also a great way to finish the meal. All in all I highly recommend the Woodhouse for any occasion, with or without kids for a truely enjoyable experience.

Excellent venue. Awesome food. Great service. Value for money given that we were a group of 6.

Only disappointment was that they couldn't take a group of 9 due to COVID 19.

Great place to eat, would highly recommend. Service, atmosphere and food was excellent. For mains I had eye fillet which was cooked perfectly with a side of pumpkin which was delicious and for dessert I chose the Caramel Parfait, one word YUM, it was so good.
If you live or are visiting Bendigo, this place is a must.

Had a Sunday lunch.
Snacks, (oysters and sashimi tuna) were tasty and a good size that helped leave room for mains.
Mains, Chateaubriand and a side of mushrooms. Fillet steak medium-rare, delicious and substantial helping.
Desserts, tasting plate great selection.
Overall well presented.

All time favourite restaurant. My partner and I had our first date here 3 years ago and continued to come back! Absolutely superb staff, wonderful table service who can answer all questions about the menu without hesitation, awesome environment, very intimate even when around big group and most of all, absolutely A Grade food and drink! Definitely recommend for a first date, birthday, get together, anniversary or just a great night out!

Great first meal out since COVID at our favourite restaurant. Only issue was we forgot with the main (steak) you only get a potato. Needed to order a shared salad, post the steaks arrival, to accompany our meal.
