Pubs in the Macedon Ranges

If you’re a fan of country pubs, you’ll be spoilt for choice in the Macedon Ranges. From Woodend to Kyneton, Lancefield to Malmsbury – you’re guaranteed to find a fantastic pub to enjoy a pint and meal (and even accommodation). Some of our pubs are also right on the V/Line train route between Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station and Bendigo, making it very easy to spend the day on a country pub trail.

Kyneton and Malmsbury pubs

Enjoy a gourmet pub meal at the charismatic Kyneton Hotel on Mollison Street. Or step into another world at Botanik on the top floor of the Royal George Hotel for a gin cocktail and antipasti plate.

The Albion Hotel is another historic pub in town within walking distance of the train line, known for hearty traditional pub meals. For a classic budget pub menu, you can also drop by The Shamrock Hotel.

PS. The Kyneton RSL and Kyneton Bowls Club also offer good value meals.

Meanwhile, the nearby village of Malmsbury might be small, yet you’ll still discover the laid-back Malmsbury Hotel on the main street serving all your pub favourites.

For an off-the-beaten track country pub experience, consider driving a little further out of Kyneton to the Pig & Whistle in Trentham East.

Woodend, Macedon and Mount Macedon

The Holgate Brewhouse & Tap Room and The Victoria Hotel are two cracker pubs in Woodend to enjoy.

In addition to their restaurant, Holgate’s amazing tap room is heaven for craft beer lovers. Choose from 16 taps of limited and special release beer situated in their state-of-the-art brewery. You can learn about beer and brewing while enjoying tasting paddles of beer you can’t try anywhere else.

The Victoria Hotel offers a fantastic family-friendly restaurant with classic pub meals (so many parmas to choose from!). Plus their Rock & Wombat Bar is open 7 days for light tapas.

Both pubs are an easy walk from the V/Line train station.

Holgate Burger

Classic pub fare at Holgate Bewhouse.

Macedon and Mount Macedon

For pub fixes in the Macedon area, drop into the Macedon Railway Hotel. This pub is known for its regular line-up of live music gigs in their band room, ‘Annies Hall’ (also easily accessible from the V/Line train station).

Or drive up Mt Macedon to the cosy Mount Macedon Hotel, with a fireplace for winter months and a beer garden to enjoy in summer.

Lancefield and Riddells Creek

With views from a glass-fronted deck toward the Cobaw Ranges, the soon-to-open Lost Watering Hole Brewery and Restaurant in Lancefield is a must-visit. Specialising in German-style beers brewed onsite, you’ll want to book accommodation nearby and make a stay out of it.

There’s also the classic Lancefield Hotel for a country pub experience.

For an easy day trip if travelling from Melbourne, you can’t go past the Riddells Creek Hotel for a classic pub experience (it’s right on the train line too).
