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.

Today was the third time I have been to the Woodhouse for their lunch special at $22.00. Wife ordered a McIvor Farm Old Breed Pork Belly which was $14.50 but sensational. Could have eaten a full serve of just that. For the $22.00 you can have a wood fire pizza and a craft beer, which is very good value, seeing... More

Lovely meal. Plenty of gluten free options available. Not cheap, but not as expensive as i expected it to be for excellent quality food. Would highly recommend, and will definitely be returning.

To say this is a woodfired pizza place, it was certainly disappointing. Our pizza was substandard in all aspects. Quite obvious these pizzas were anything but made in house apart from the topping. I can make better myself. Service was good apart from one surly male maitre de. I would not recommend the pizza but perhaps the steaks may be... More

I have been here several times. Food is excellent, service outstanding, atmosphere is old fashioned quality - really great. Value is pretty good. This place is not super trendy but just excellent quality on every level

My wife and I dined for lunch at the Woodhouse, our first experience here, one that we both were looking forward to. We certainly weren't disappointed as the title of the review suggested our lunch was so delicious. We booked a table in the quieter part of the restaurant so glad we did as it was quite busy for a...

Very thankful for the lovely waiter who looked after us for the evening. He was witty and attentive. Food was tasty and delicious. We didn't order it but the dessert taste place looked and was presented beautifully. Only negative is that we had to wait to sit at our table for a fair while so dinner was late and it... More

The steaks were very good but I have to say the seafood extra was over priced, a small serve and over cooked and dry. The root Veges were nice. The service was good. The industrial fan spoils it for me.

Went for dinner tonight with family. The meals were excellent - steaks, pork and the fish. Very tasty and beautifully presented. The sweets - but the tasting platter we shared and it was a real highlight. The service was excellent. Highly recommend.

This is not for the faint hearted, expect to be served with quality food and drinks and make sure your credit card has plenty to spare Been here many times always good service, great food, love the hand crafted beer selection and wine list.
