Husband chose the accommodation and I chose the town. Woodend is a friendly place central to places we wanted to explore. Holgates brew house is in the middle of town and walking distance to everything. Great food, staff friendly and interesting beer.

For a non beer lover I would have to say that this place has converted me! We got a tasting paddle which was a great way to sample their selection. The one negative would have to be the luke warm bowl of chips we ordered. Prices were very reasonable. Will definitely be back.

Arrived shortly after 6pm and the place filled up pretty quickly after that, so that must be good for a Monday night (although there is not much else open on Monday nights in the area). Started out with a pint of pale ale, which was great. Got a chicken parma which was enormous and very tasty. My daughter had the... More

We ate here in a group after the run at hanging rock. It was pretty awkward entering and looking for a table - there was no service and the building has numerous random areas where you have to search for a table. After an hour squashed at the bar we managed to get a table but the food was really... More

On our way to Hepburn we stopped in Woodend for a light lunch and saw this pumping little bar/restaurant. Amazing beers, great staff, service awesome, we shared a ploughman platter which was perfect. Don't drive past this place!

Had lunch here today. I had a dark ale pie which was completely dry with no gravy of any kind inside accompanied by a very ordinary side salad. I must say that the chips were fabulous though. My sister had a falafel burger which had some kind of smoked ingredient which she did not like and was not mentioned in... More

Unfortunately i was disappointed with the boutique beer's that they have. It used to be a good pub that the locals went to religiously but now it's main aim is targeted at the yuppies and tourism,with overpriced beer that belongs in the cities not in small country towns.

Lunch was a shared ploughman's today. The meats were delicious, as was the bread. A bit more cheese would have been a bonus. Chips were excellent. 9/10. Small choice of beer, and the one i wanted wasn't available. Water glasses need a good wash, had to look for a clean one. But it was okay. I would still return.
