About The Woodhouse

Follow the aroma of delicious smokiness to The Woodhouse on Williamson Street in Bendigo. This steakhouse and red gum grill is a local favourite presenting a rustic dining experience, where guests can enjoy a pre-dinner drink in front of an open fire, or dine in the temperature-controlled alfresco area. Wagyu lovers will salivate over a menu championing dry-aged beef, along with predominantly housemade charcuterie and deliciously indulgent desserts, all sourced from fresh local produce. Kickstart a culinary journey with wood-seared Sher Wagyu, salted duck egg, enoki mushroom, chives, radish, ponzu and nori; before grilled lamb cutlets, mint jelly, roasted new potatoes and confit garlic. Those who can’t decide may opt for the popular five-course tasting offering, with matched beverages.

A few words from The Woodhouse

Smell the delicious smokiness of Bendigo's only dedicated steakhouse, where we use local redgum on the grill and 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 our charcoal oven, we use the heavenly, sweet smelling apple wood sourced from nearby Harcourt. In the finest tradition of steakhouses across the globe, we use locally sourced meat and the very best in fresh, regional produce.

The Woodhouse steak selection provides a unique range of flavours and intense tenderness. Choose from our most delicate and lean eye fillet, the rich, fat-studded Wagyu scotch fillet, a hearty dry aged rib eye or a more textured and bold flavoured Wagyu porterhouse, t-bone or rump. Awarded best steakhouse in Victoria and Tasmania (and 3rd in Australia).

The five-course Woodhouse Experience is a popular choice of our guests, enabling us to highlight the quality produce in our region, with carefully selected beverages to match.

The Woodhouse also offers a diverse a la carte menu to satisfy all tastes, with each dish designed to utilise the region's best and freshest local produce. The extensive menu offering is balanced with a range of seafood, pasta, vegetarian and additional wood-fired dishes, a robust range of side orders, and desserts so good, that they have developed a local cult following.

Food and drink specials – depending on our chefs and what's in season – are available daily.

Vegetarian, gluten free and other dietary requirements are all happily provided for. If you have any food allergies or special dietary requirements, please let us know upon booking.
