Went for a quick road trip for lunch and a few beers on the Queen's birthday. The place was very busy. It took a good amount of time to get a beer and the wait for food was lengthy. That being said, the quality of the food did not suffer. Lunch was very good. Another bartender pulling drafts would have... More

We stopped in as part of a tour, with 8 people. Staff were great and ran us through a ll the beers they produce. Had a great time, and the beers were all good. If you see them in your local, give them a try. Or better, get them from the source. They had an excellent band playing while we... More

'Devilled' steak with pepper sauce = steak covered with pepper, with pepper sauce, garnished with pepper. We sent it back as inedible, and were thrown a few drinks for free. Fine. BUT, this steak has been reviewed as horrible by diners prior to me and they still choose to keep it on their menu. If you're going to give a... More

Have tried this hotel several times and each time hoping the food will improve! However has been a disappointment every time. The beer is ok and worthwhile trying, but don''t come here for the food.

Excellent range of local beers on tap, great for a hot day in Woodend. Didn't eat there but the place was full and the food looked good also.

.....and not (so much) the food. One of Victoria's better micros and the increasing emphasis of seasonal beers is great, but the food can be somewhat uninspiring. That said, excellent chips. Bar snacks a better option.

I have been delighted that this microbrewery set up in Woodend and shifted the brewery into Keatings pub, now Holgates. They make a great range of beers to satisfy all tastes. I have a winter and a summer favourite but regularly stray to try other offerings just to see how they are going. I haven't been disappointed yet. I see... More

Upon arrival had a quick and efficient check in then shown to my room by a very friendly young lady. Room was very spacious and well laid out with a very big bathroom. Only drawback was the very small TV. Went down stairs to the pub and had a fantastic meal,(Corn Beef) and had a very nice few hours drinking... More
