Description: The Wine Bank on View is a wine bar & wine merchant, operating from a heritage listed bank building in Central Bendigo. The Victorian era building was constructed in 1876, and was once the home of the Union Bank and the Bank of Australasia & New Zealand (ANZ). Our bottle shop is open seven days of the week, offering a huge range of local, domestic & international wine, and boutique beers. We are more than just a wine bar & wine merchant. By day, our award winning coffee & continuous menu are enjoyed, along with wines by the glass & homemade cakes. By night, Wine Bank becomes a thriving social hub, to relax and enjoy a glass of wine with friends, & a range of dining options. Our drink-in prices are the best you will find anywhere. Our wines are consistently cheaper than any other merchant! Our philosophy is to provide customers with exceptional customer service, providing value with our range of wines and fantastic food. Celebrate Bendigo's Heritage past with beautiful local wines...

“Disappointing”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went in on a Sunday morning for a coffee and the female assistant was so curt, seemed to be under the pump, the coffee person was slow. We asked for a table and that we would be ordering coffee - to which our assistant replied - we're not serving coffees this morning - so we got up and left - vowing never to return. We bypass this place for that reason and now it's just over 6 months. Bad staff.

“Wow what a menu!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

In Bendigo for work tonight and so glad I ventured out on my own to eat rather than settle into my motel room.

Randomly walked past this restaurant and am pleased that I ventured in. The menu presents a highly delicious, at reasonable prices, with equally reasonably priced wine.

The servings are generous even at entree size.

“Great selection of wine, nice food”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Great selection of local wines and only $10 extra to drink them in the restuarant. In an old bank so it has a nice atmosphere, good courtyard outside and tables on the street

“Relaxed ambiance”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Met with a willingness to serve. Loved that they poured the wine by glass at the table. Wine was perfectly chilled. Recommend the Sri Lankan lamb curry. Liked the choice of sidewalk or inside seating options. Easy walk from gardens.

“Breakfast fine on a quiet morning”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We stayed for four nights over the Easter holidays in the Maisonettes behind the bank. This meant we often walked through going to or from our room. It always seemed full, and I looked a lot at what people were eating and drinking. On our last day (post public holiday) we had breakfast there as a treat.

We had two of the egg choices, both generously served and tasty. Service was fine, but there weren't too many customers at the time we were there (it offers breakfast from 7anm on weekdays but we were there nineish).

Initially we sat outside, but the traffic was too noisy and we moved in to a table in one of the side rooms.

Do find out about the history of the building, and take a peak at the upstairs guards room.
