  • Probably one of the best breweries in Victoria. Excellent quality beer across the range. The IPAs and bitters are very good Love the front bar. Good luck getting a seat outside on a nice day. The restaurant at the back is fine on terms of food but the ambience is not great. Just a big echoing room. Eat in the front bar instead.
  • Stopped by here on the way through Woodend and had a great time. The brewhouse is a cosy venue that can be full of customers and not feel cramped. There was a fantastic live band playing in the central room, the staff were all very friendly and helpful, the beer was great, and the wedges were some of the best I've ever had. Brilliant atmosphere overall. Would love to come back.
  • Ale pie we have had before but this was crap. Shredded dry meat. Sorry but it was really bad.
  • Great place for lunch, went with a car club and we're very accommodating for a big group of 20. Great meals and beautiful venue. Would recommend
  • Really nice building, and good service. The food was also delicious. A lovley country pub feel
