Step into our restaurant and watch your senses ignite. Smell the delicious smokiness of Bendigo's only Redgum char-grill and dedicated steak house, as we use our unique "cooking with wood" techniques. In the finest tradition of steakhouses across the globe we use locally sourced meat and the very best in fresh, regional produce. Enjoy in-house and regionally prepared Charcuterie, beef carpaccio, organic lamb, or local chorizo styled sausage. Try our free-range pasture-fed porterhouse or smoked Wagyu. Meat is always the star of the show.

The Woodhouse is the most consistently excellent dining place in Bendigo, I am always pleased with their exceptional service and perfect food. This time it was my birthday, since we are pretty much vegetarian at home I increased my iron levels with an Inglewood steak, thanks to the chef for treating the piece of meat with respect. The vegetarian pizza... More

A special celebration dinner for four made memorable by good service, great atmosphere and delicious food. As you might expect, an expensive meal, but not over the top for the experience we had.

Loved our visit to the Woodhouse! Food was awesome, venue just beautiful and service, especially from the waitress Amy, was outstanding. The fact that fish and seafood dishes highlighted on Good Friday was very much appreciated. Cannot wait to return and thoroughly recommended.

The steak is always cooked to perfection, the sides delicious, the maitre'd knows his wines and the wait staff are both efficient in their service and know their menu including the specials.

I was worried when I returned here, having last visited a couple of years ago. It had been very good then but some recent poor reviews had me worried that it had slipped both in service and quality of food. But my fears were allayed by fabulous service and outstanding food - the rib-eye steak was fractionally overdone but still... More

Its always difficult to try similar dishes a few days apart at different restaurants because there will always be a comparison and with fresh memories someone will come 2nd. Woodhouse has a large menu but it seems to always polarise between low priced pizzas and very expensive (Waygu) steak. There is some middle ground but not much. We tried the... More

I ordered the porterhouse steak and it was divine! Cooked to perfection. The staff were very attentive, nothing too much trouble. This would be a great place for that something special as it is a little pricey but well worth it! great job guys.
