About Pratty's Patch

Housed in a 150-year-old cottage, Pratty’s Patch on Monsants Road, sits right at home in historic Bendigo. Weathered stone and brick walls give Pratty’s a warm and pastoral feel, while artefacts like rusted iron stocks and a bushranger statue pay homage to its convict heritage. Inside you’ll find the reception friendly, the bill fair and portions generous, just what you’d expect from a place with such olde world charm. Start with garlic prawns in white wine cream sauce on rice, with salad and fresh lemon; before mains like chicken breast, stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, basil and feta, topped with a creamy sauce, or perhaps a well-cooked steak. Burger and bar menus are also tempting while enjoying an after-work drink and a large function room caters for events and weddings.

Pratty's Patch is a unique 150-year-old stone and brick cottage situated in Monsants Road Maiden Gully. Pratty's Patch was built in 1863 by John Fellows to replace a smaller bark hut constructed about 3 years earlier by John and his convict wife.

Pratty's Patch was made into a restaurant during the early 1980s. The large function room was extended ten years later and the public bar was added in 1996. View our gallery page for more of Pratty's history.
