At Holgate Brewhouse, we pride ourselves in being a non-gaming venue. Relax with friends and family in a welcoming, friendly atmosphere, with live music or background tunes – free from bleeps, blips and garish screens. Kick back and explore the flavours of Holgate’s masterful range of ales and lagers. Or try a superb wine from the many local Macedon Ranges wineries.

Tuck into a great value pub meal at the bar, or settle in and enjoy the flavours and local produce of our popular restaurant menu. Claim your favourite spot in the sunny dining room, classic main bar, snug parlour bar, or cosy lounge. In the summer, you can gaze out to the village clock tower from our shady outside courtyard. And in the depths of a Woodend winter, there’s five log fires to keep you toasty!


We’re dedicated on providing a great dining experience – simple food prepared perfectly, in a stylish yet relaxed restaurant setting, with friendly and attentive service. We provide full table service in our dining rooms and more casual service in our unreserved areas – bar, lounge & courtyard. Our modern Australian menu is designed and prepared in the hotel kitchen by a team of excellent chefs under the keen eye of Restaurateur Natasha Holgate. Provenance is important to us, and we use only the best of locally available meats, as well fresh local produce and ingredients
