Love the internal design, atmosphere, friendly staff and great food in the taphouse. Great for a lazy Sunday lunch with the family.

I hadn't been here in a few years. Went with a friend and had a few beers and shared a calamari. Food was good, beers were good. Overall a good experience.

The food here is good but you come here for the beer. The variety of beers is impressive. The best way to navigate your way through their variety is to order a tasting paddle. Armed with tasting notes, you can then work your way through the paddle and discuss the pros and cons of each with friends. A visit to the brewery next door is a must. You can choose from the wide variety and take home a few favourites. Some of the beers are packaged in cans while others are in bottles. The staff at the hotel were good but the staff at the brewery next door even better. Holgate Brewhouse is a great place to visit when in Woodend. This pub and brewery has the best location in town from a hospitality perspective. It's directly across from the Clocktower with plenty of parking nearby. Worth a visit!
Did the Family Easter gathering here in the "Lead Light room" It was a great venue and worked out well. Parma was good, steak sandwich was not great. Overall it was a great day and I can recommend The Holgate for a large family catch up 👍
