Kid, baby, friend & parent friendly. Food, beer & service great. Open fire round the back keeps it cosy all year round. A great respite to some fresh winter weather. more »

A great pub, fantastic beer and good food. As a local I am disappointed that the owners have taken out the wood fires, and replaced the front door. This is THE place to drink in the local area. Also g... more »
We went for a beer at the bar. There are lovely stained glass windows. They let us have a taste of a few beers so we could pick. The Chocolate Porter was great. I wouldn't go out of my way for this place, but it's a standard/good pub.
Great selection of house brewed beers. Amazing pub grub at a reasonable price. Super friendly and helpful staff. Great beer garden. 5/7 great experience!
Always worth a visit, great selection of beers and can't go wrong with the tasting paddle. Food has been great each visit, prices are what you expect. Staff always helpful, even when their eftpos was Down. Should have said we saw Telstra working around the corner.
Bar was understaffed, though polite when served. Beers served on paddle taster did not match order due to printing differences in order form for customers and for staff. Food scraps on tables due to understaffing.
Cute brick brewery, a must stop if you're passing through Woodend for a beer paddle and maybe dinner (pretty expensive for a standard pub menu but I guess there aren't too many other options in town). Service was a bit of a miss. Stated our preference for food before beer to line stomachs (hadn't eaten yet) but had a beer paddle poured for us after we said we wanted to wait until the kitchen was open at 5pm. I mentioned we'd wanted to go check out a shop or two and come back and she said she'd already poured it for us but that she could keep it for us - warm flat beer? No thank you. So we drank the paddle and I must say I'm pretty impressed with the value of their paddle: 8 different beers for $20! It was 4.5 standard drinks so we just split the one so my partner could drive. The cranky waitress walked away and I asked her colleague if I could pay so we could go sit at a table and then when we left she yelled out to ask if we'd settled our tab. Do they not have systems in place to check this? So not the friendliest service but at least the beers were nice. Quite liked the Hop Tart, the Temptress and the Gose.
