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.

Great Food

The service and food were both top quality. Service was unobtrusive but attentive. Ordering something a bit specialized was not a problem. The food was delicious and of reasonable proportions too, so we didn't leave hungry. But also not that large that we couldn't fit in a desert. Deserts were also... read more

We went to this restraunt on a school night, and it was fairly busy however we were served quickly and effectively. The girls who served our drink were very good at their job and the waiter was helpful. We had a steak, burger and a lamb pizza. We all agreed the meals were delicious. This restraunt if fairly expensive but... More

We ate here for lunch on a weekday, had the lunchtime pizza special which was $20 and included any pizza on the menu along with a glass of wine/beer/soft drink. Pizza was delicious! Thin crust and wood fired! We had one of the pumpkin/feta/beetroot pizzas and the wagu meatballs. We also had the zucchini flowers for entre - YUM! Would... More

It was expensive but I didn't mind one bit, I've travelled throughout oz and this was simply my best dining experience in 20yrs down under, entree, main, desert and local Heathcote cab merlot (Ellis) was all world class right In regional Victoria, who would have thought ! Will definitely go again.

Vin Merlot is back in Australia. He attends a monthly meeting in Bendigo but usually dines with colleagues the night before. On this occasion the social secretary picked wood house for a party of 6. Nice restaurant with attractive wooden features, tables nicely spaced and very good service from the initial greeting as Vin walked in before the rest of... More

The woodhouse is the best restaurant in Bendigo. The staff are freindly and attentive, the food is phenomenal and the setting is cosy. We are frequent diners here. Always get the dessert tasting plate, it is amazing!!

Set in a quiet street in Bendigo, a lovely cosmopolitan regional town in the Goldfields area of Northern Victoria. Parking is plentiful. We had a table for 12 in the main dining area. There are 3 other smaller dining areas. The food - from delicious pizza cooked in a genuine wood fired oven to the $140 serve of Wagyu beef... More

The premise is tucked away on the corner of one of the main Streets in Bendigo- it is still close enough to walk in the main streets of the city yet far enough to with plenty of car park spots. Once you step foot inside the glass door, you can feel the warmth of the fire place that is perfectly... More

this time I ordered the scallops (cooked to perfection again!) followed by the beef cheek gnocci, the beef cheeks fell apart and were so tender. Another excellent visit so well done and thankyou to all. Staff were friendly and tentative .

I went to "The Woodhouse" to help my best friend celebrate their birthday and a great night was had by all. Great food, great service, great ambience - meeting all bench marks I would expect for a restaurant of this calibre. The recent awards adorning the walls are all deserving and recognition of this restaurant's achievements. I would happily dine... More
