We stopped for a light lunch. We had the tasting paddle and the Czech pilsner and apple cider were my favourites. As a matter of fact the apple cider was probably the best I have ever had. We had the mussels and fish tacos for lunch, both dishes were very good. We washed this down with some more of that... More

I recently caught up with friends here, the setting is comfortable, laid back & rustic which I love. The wine & beer list is great as is the menu, the pizzas are a specialty. The service is not great & you have to keep waiving the staff down. They also wouldn't split the bill at the end, not even equally... More

We have been here a few times and like the relaxed atmosphere. Good choice of beers and the local ones are great to try. Food is good, but there are better value places in the area.

Great food and beer served in a chilled out environment by highly efficient staff. Reasonable prices and a great introduction to the Yarra Valley.

I wrote a review not long ago as we found the food disappointing after coming here a few times. It was a shame... But now they have changed their menu, added some steaks (hooray), the food was good, the service was good and we had a lovely time with a group of friends. Thanks for taking the feedback on board!...

St Patrick's day dinner was acceptable but, having not eaten at the Coldstream Brewery in a long time, I was surprised by the menu changes.pizzas and pub food rather than the former creative, delicious menu. There was Irish 'background' type musicians playing. No singing, or much life to the duo, which was disappointing. Fantastic beers, as always.

We took family from the Uk and were really delighted. We chose a mix of entrees to share pizza , calamari and wedges with ciders and lagers. All the dishes were fantastic and great prices and the service was fantastic.
