Lovely pub food at this great location. Half a dozen of us all enjoyed the meal and service. Sunday jazz was an added bonus. Definitely worth the trip!

The St Macedon pale ale was outstanding. We enjoyed a pleasant lunch of a terrine plate and serving offalafels. Both dishes were enjoyable.

Thanks for visiting. The Mt Macedon Ale is one of our biggest sellers. The vegetarian falafels are popular too and a personal favourite of mine! Hope to see you back soon

Great craft beer and good food! We usually drop in for a meal after we play golf. The staff are very friendly. Paul Holgate brews his own beers and there is something for every taste. I love his Temptress chocolate porter!! Worth a look.

Popped in stock up on beer!! We stayed there a couple of years and went back for more. So much choice in their beer range - something for everyone. Unfortunately they don't bottle the Hopinator but thats an excuse to visit

Thanks for visiting. We use a whole free range chicken breast to make our Parma! Many pubs serve enormous slabs of manufactured processed chicken and charge accordingly. We prefer to offer our customers a better option!

A great place to get a cold brewed lager after a long walk up Mt Macedon. The Pilsner was also good but I felt the $20 tasting palette was a bit pricey. Nice atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor settings.
