Woodstock Coterie, built in 1988, was designed to nestle among the towering century old gum trees. The design took into consideration the location of each of these amazing native trees. Not one significant tree was cut down to accommodate building the restaurant. Hence, the Coterie's unique semicircle shape. Rammed earth walls encase the dining area, providing a warm feel and at the same time complementing The Coterie's unique quintessentially Australian landscape. Glass doors and windows frame the lush native gardens creating an atrium feel for the discerning patron. Upstairs there is a mezzanine level available for private tastings, conferences and functions.The name 'Coterie' was chosen for the word's meaning; the gathering of a group of people, or rather a circle of friends, for a specific purpose... that for us includes great food, good company and finest wines at Woodstock

Don't let the unkempt garden areas put you off which are all really natural, just like the areas around Woodstock. Inside it was a warm welcoming restaurant with a live music performance. The menu had options for gluten free and vegetarian which all sounded really nice. We started with sourdough bread and then braised lamb shank and a perfectly cooked... More

My boyfriend and i went to Woodstock for lunch on Sunday and it was the perfect way to spend a cold, rainy day. The restaurant was nice and warm and all the staff were very welcoming. We didnt get a chance to do tastings before our meal, but the waitress brought a few wines to our table and made recommendations... More

A group of us went to the Friday night wood oven pizza evening. It included a small starter, eat as much pizza as you like and a small dessert. Starter, pizza's and dessert where all delicious. Live musician playing great music and a fire burning completed the evening perfectly. Already planning another evening there.

A fantastic dining experience. Great location, delicious food and attentive service. A platter of local delights that kept on giving from the terrine to the crumbed mushrooms. Followed by a heavenly slow-braised lamb shoulder and a series of desserts that left our table salivating. All meticulously served by energetic and caring staff. We will return again and again... A must... More

The pizza night held on Fridays is a great idea for a relaxed meal in delightful surroundings. Menu is from a choice of wood-fire oven pizza, complemented with entre and sweets. As the temperature was now a bit low to sit outdoors being inside did not detract from the enjoyment, The oven is visible from inside and the flood-lit trees... More

We stopped by this charming winery because it had been recommended to us and did, indeed, buy several bottles that we drank over the rest of our trip in Australia. The restaurant looked nice but we weren't ready for lunch yet.
