My boyfriend and i went to see this interesting place but it was a big disappointment. The mood was just flat and there isn't that much variety on the menu. Even no variety of alcohol apart from the beer.

We offer share plates, pub favourites & restaurant style mains & tasty specials. We cater to vegetarians, vegans, gluten free guests & children too!

I had been meaning to try this place for ages, as I am rather partial to their Mt Macedon Pale Ale. So when I could convince some friends to join me, I jumped at the chance. The tasting paddle had 8 varieties for $20, and they kindly agreed to swap out one that I'd already tried. And never a more... More

Have been to the Holgate Brewery a number of times. Always drop in when visiting Woodend. Range of beers are great, favourite being the Macedon Pale Ale. Hot chips and wedges were delicious. Chorizo was so and so. Havent tried the main dining menu so cant comment. Staff are very welcoming. We sat in the beer garden, tucked away from... More

We were thrilled when relatives who had come to visit took us to Holgate's for lunch. It had been a long time between drinks for us and quite frankly, we hoped that the overall service had not changed. It hadn't. It was a hugely busy weekend in Woodend and the queue to order food was also hugely long. However, we... More

Begrudgingly I had been on a 6km walk through muddy paths to reach a "scenic view" - I may have well stared at a blank piece of A4 as I would have seen more. Now it was my choice, I wanted a beer and I wanted good food - I wasn't disappointed. Having got into Holgate Brewhouse I made a... More

The menu is standard pub fare - burgers, parma, fish n chips, steak. While tasty if you are a vegetarian there are two options only. We had the Mexican burger and the falafel...both very tasty and great chips. Meals are a generous size. Waitress came around to tell us the lines would be closed for beers in 10 mins and... More

We visited the Holgate Brew House on the Anzac long weekend, our first stop here was to have lunch, as they were so busy, we decided to go elsewhere and pop back for a beer. The staff were literally running around to accomodate all the patrons, not the best equation if you are after a relaxed lunch environment. The beer... More

The beer is is exceptional, the food is standard pub food. I would recommend the tasting paddle of beers for those keen to try them all.
