Tucked away a short distance from the main street of Trentham is this gem of a bistro/ wine store. The interior is an Ali Baba's cave with displays of preserved food and some of the best wines in the world, Australian, French, Italian, and so on. The owner Paul is very knowledgeable on wines, and quite happy to share his... More

What a gem The food was amazing the chilli chicken was on my mind for days after I ate it. Recipe anyone? Great service. It's a touch of Brunswick in the country Thanks for the hospitality. Wanted dessert sooooo bad but was too full

We went to Trentham just for a day out, not knowing much about the area. As it was about lunch time we tried to find somewhere to eat, and most places were packed out. Just as we were beginning to think we would be going without, we stumbled upon "Colliban Foodstore". Going in we found this place was near on... More

I've been to the Colliban Foodstore in Trentham a few times now over the last couple of years, and one of the good things about this place is their ability to learn and adapt and respond to their clientele. The place, which was good to start with mind you, has settled and found a solid core staff who run place... More

Management is inconsistent. We are an older couple. Management seemed to relate better to his peers. Other staff very helpful. Food okay.

This place has great potential of being a real gem in trentham. The produce for sale is terrific (though pricey). I have been twice now and it falls short for me. Today I'm going to list what disappointed me. My charcuterie platter came out on a plain white plate. It would have looked so much better on a wooden board.... More

this is one of those places oozing with atmosphere- an old store, odd tables and chairs, great food and really friendly staff. It is hidden away off the main street of Trentham but well worth the drive. We have a Weekender in Kyneton and recommend our guests visit there. I almost dont want to share as I want to be... More

Wow! I don't need to pay for shocking rude customer service and appallingly over exposed coffee. Guy behind the counter was horrid. I've given it 3 chances - no more. Food really was a little over priced for what it was - melbourne cafe culture 10 years ago.
