I am not a fan of the pub and rarely go but checked out the new Tap room and visitors centre as I was showing an overseas friend the Macedon Ranges. It was a Sunday and surprisingly empty but the bar staff said there were bands playing at the pub that is where everyone was. Suited us fine having then place to ourselves, a good space with plenty of natural light and we got plenty of attention from the friendly guy working the bar as it was not busy. Our mate from Mexico loved it and got some beers to take home. You can get basic food also if a bit peckish. Great for a country town just wish they would put some money, time and effort into the tired pub it sadly needs attention.

Arrived for an early dinner at 6pm on a Monday. It was very busy and there was a long wait to order at the bar due to there only being a couple of staff working (taking orders, making drinks, seating people etc.). When we ordered we were told there were no onion rings left - at 6pm on a Monday. This indicates poor planning in the kitchen and a lack of willingness to meet what customers' want. Our food didn't take too long to arrive, but my calamari salad was quite a small serve - thankfully we ordered a side of fries. My partner's steak was overcooked. I had dined here previously, but this meal didn't meet the same standard. We are not going to rush back any time soon.

Booked the brewery tour for a Saturday afternoon. Reasonably priced ($25 each and ticket includes a 6 or 4 pack of beer to take home). Tour starts and finishes in the taphouse includes a quick presentation showing the history of the brewery and then a walk through the various rooms. Our guide, James was knowledgeable and brought the process to life. Pleasant way to spend half an our on a road trip with a drink or meals in the pub

When we enquired thirty minutes after ordering our lunch as to how much longer our meals would be - we were told “standard wait time is 45 minutes”. Had we been informed of the “standard 45 minute wait”, when we first arrived, we could have made an informed decision as to whether to stay or leave.
When our meals finally arrived - 2 burgers, ciabatta roll and onion rings, it was cold. After waiting for so long with hungry children - sending food back was not an option.
Complete disappointment.

The wifi was shocking, they have about 15 different wifi names and none of them work. If you decide to book a rom and stay the night you will have to use your mobile data because the internet doesn’t work all they way up in the room. But overall the food and drinks where very good

Loved visiting this Brewhouse. Stopped in to the newly built Tasting Room and was greatly with friendly and knowledgeable service, exceptional beers (in both variety and quality). A great space and a great experience.

Staying close by our friends said a visit to the Holgate Brewhouse was needed. Great setup and very busy. Walking thru the bar/dining area the food looked very good. Time was we couldn't partake. We went into the tasting room and were lucky enough to get a table just vacated. 2 gins and a tasting paddle after a bit of waiting lined up proved very good. Beers were good as were the gins. This looked to me as a gold mine for the owners and the town.

Decided to stop in for a late lunch with my husband.
The service was terrible! Took a long time to take our drink order which should have been our first sign that the service was going to be incredibly poor.
Finally took our lunch order and whilst the lunch came out in a timely manner my husband had the Parma which left a lot to be desired.
Following this we finished our meals and wanted a nice dessert however not one person came to ask if we wanted another drink or to order dessert, so we left.
Very disappointing!

Rude owner
Manager useless

Owner seems like she hates general public, and if there is anything that doesn't go her way she must smite it.

Staff were lovely and IN TOTAL FEAR OF OWNER.
Don't give them your business, there are many other amazing places and beers on offer.

Very small takeaway menu (which is good) and matched with excellent food and at an affordable price. I have been price gouged at this hotel before with some awful food. During the COVID-19 period the hotel has clearly looked at matching taste and demand. Food was ready on time for pick up and well presented and hot.
