Given the glowing reviews it was going to be difficult for the Woodhouse to meet our very high expectations. However it pretty much did and is certainly well worth a visit - on a par with the excellent Masons. Food quality is excellent with steak the hero of the menu - the beef experience. We had the Cape Grimm (?)... More

We are still working our way through the steaks, we haven't got to the pizzas yet. I reckon it is on a par with Masons for the food (without the dressing up). The wines are good and the staff wonderful with a sense of humour.

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Woodhouse. This is a meat lovers dream come true. The atmosphere here is great and even before entering the restaurant you can smell the woodfire oven cooking up a storm! If you get the opportunity, try this place! It is as good as anything in Melbourne!

I love the Woodhouse. Excellent service and delicious food. Their steak is delicious but if you feel like something light Yu can't go past their wood fired pizzas.

Food was very good, but service and atmosphere was terrible. We were placed on a table closest to the kitchen and were constantly bumped and interrupted by waiters. Floorboards are also very loose so it felt like I was being bounced around each time one of the waiters came past. Attention to the table was to the point rude with... More

If you are after a place to fill all your red meat fantasies this is the place to go. The Woodhouse not only has a great menu but a large wine selection, fantastic staff and the atmosphere is just romantic - sort of a hunting lodge crossed with a old bar with 'dark corners for dark deeds'. It is amazing.

It's not often you spoil yourself, but if you do, The Woodhouse is the place to do it!! Absolute top quality food, with exceptional service to match. Magnificent cuts of the finest meats to suit any appetite. It's the type of meal that makes you say "so that's what Roast Lamb/Eye Filet (etc) should taste like". Five stars all the... More

We were looking forward to eating at this restaurant because of all the great reviews, but it unfortunately did not live up to our expectations on the night. The restaurant itself was lovely, the staff were great, and we had 2 fantastic entrees to start off with, but the steak was a let down. We ordered a Cape Grim 300gm... More

The Woodhouse is another quality eating place in Bendigo, we are so lucky to have so many fabulous local eateries, if only I had enough money I would eat out every night. We totally enjoyed two vegetarian pizzas, the best potato chips in Bendigo and a grain based salad. Unfortunately we were too full for the dessert sharing platter...next time... More

We had a booking for 4, a birthday dinner. Great menu, very extensive and lots of options. Great wine list & always a good wine as they stock the best of regional wines. Timing of the meal was good, not too slow or quick. Time to relax with family & friends. Only bad slight was it took a very long... More

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.
