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

  • I love this place! It’s our regular kid free get away. Beer is great, and venue is really lovely. Rooms are comfortable and although meals aren’t gourmet, they’re really delicious. Room, beer tasting paddle & three course dinner all included in the package. Always really enjoy our stay here. Macedon ranges make for a great little car trip too, some pretty places and cute, historic towns.
  • 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!
