Smell the delicious smokiness of Bendigo’s only dedicated steakhouse & grill, where we use local redgum on the grill; there’s nothing quite like the flavour of meat cooked over redgum. The natural smoky flavours and aromas created by this unique timber are something truly special. In the finest tradition of steakhouses, we use locally sourced meat and the very best in fresh, regional produce.

Showcasing 350 wines, including 28 by the glass, including some seriously interesting wines curated by our inhouse Sommelier. With local wines taking pride of place, including some intriguing European offerings, plus a supporting cast of spirits, beers and other beverages, including a decent alcohol-free selection. Cocktail drinkers will be impressed with our seasonally curated list.

    What a fantastic place, we absolutely loved it. The service was exceptionally good, a fantastic menu and the food was delicious. Good sized portions, beautifully presented and in good time after ordering and between courses. Staff friendly and helpful and comfortable seating. From the entree to the dessert the food was incredible,especially the steak. Best steak I’ve ever had. The wine and sommelier were also impressive. We found this restaurant on Facebook and with my last name being Woodhouse and seeing the posts on this place we soon made plans to visit Bendigo from Albury and experience The Woodhouse Bar and Grill. We had a great night and will be back

    Been there a few times now as this time was no different. $88 Steak was extremely fatty, potato rosti was dry. 2 prawns for $18. Had a $200 voucher that they wouldn’t accept as “expired” Not worth the price.

    Our snacks and entrees of oysters, prawns, Yurrita Cantabrican anchovies and duck parfait were well presented and tasted great. Our mains of eye fillet and porterhouse steaks were so tender they were like butter in the mouth and were perfectly cooked. The side of wood-roasted heritage carrots was amazing. The tarte tartin was the perfect size to finish off our meal. The reason for 4 stars for service was due to the long wait time between the entree and the main, apart from that the service couldn't be faulted.

    Great food as always ! We love the Woodhouse, the service is exceptional, friendly and attentive. The steaks are spot on … cooked to perfection and desserts are Yummo! They also have an extensive and affordable wine list with excellent variety (we had the primitivo, it was a ripper). Thanks Woodhouse, see you again soon! 👍👏 steak 🥩 🍷

    We have dined at the Woodhouse several times, and they just get it right every time. Beef tartare, eye fillet steaks and the desert was about eight little portions on a platter. Altogether a great experience. A wide ranging wine list, and the best Negroni cocktail outside of Italy .

    Excellent for a special night out. We particularly enjoyed the charcuterie board and accompanying bread and the side of roasted pumpkin with our main course. We were too full to try a dessert. Overall it was great but the side room was very dark.

    Our first visit back after a few years, and we were totally impressed. The food was utterly delicious! The staff gave us very professional and friendly assistance. Your Somalier is a great bloke! Clearly knows his stuff, especially around the less experienced without being condescending. I wear hearing aids so adjusting to some conversations was challenging, but not your fault. Just the best experience, thank you so much!

    At the start of our night we ordered a red wine to have with our main meal when it came out. I asked for the wine to be opened at the time to breathe. When our main meals came out our red wine wasn't presented. After we were half way through our main meal the wine was produced, unopened. When I mentioned we asked for it to be opened to breathe the waiter tried to make light of the situation.
