As we were in Bendigo for the weekend we decided to begin with a few glasses of wine and a snack at the Wine Bank and were glad we did. Here there is a huge range of wines and obviously people who have knowledge of them. So sitting outside with two glasses we ordered some chicken liver pate and can... More

Thank you for your review Mathew. Over the past thirteen years we have put together an amazing array of wines from all over the world which we are all very proud of.

We often stop here for a lunch on our travels to or from Melbourne and are never disappointed. A great menu with grazing or full meal options and a wine list like a phone book. The building is an old bank and a fantastic piece of architecture providing a good atmosphere. Staff are friendly and helpful without hovering. Try it... More

The Wine Bank is one of the best places to visit in Bendigo. In one of the old buildings around town it has an ambiance that sets the mood from the moment you walk in the door. They have a function room upstairs which was used when the building was a bank for security. A guy would sit in the... More

The waitress made a mistake with our order so a vegetarian in our party was unknowingly served meat. This was distressing but what was worse was management's response to the problem: "she's eaten the dish so we'll still charge you for it". I've been here a few times before on visits to Bendigo, but with that attitude, never again and... More

Description
The Wine Bank on View is a wine bar & wine merchant, operating from a heritage listed bank building in Central Bendigo. The Victorian era building was constructed in 1876, and was once the home of the Union Bank and the Bank of Australasia & New Zealand (ANZ). Our bottle shop is open seven days of the week, offering a huge range of local, domestic & international wine, and boutique beers. We are more than just a wine bar & wine merchant. By day, our award winning coffee & continuous menu are enjoyed, along with wines by the glass & homemade cakes. By night, Wine Bank becomes a thriving social hub, to relax and enjoy a glass of wine with friends, & a range of dining options. Our drink-in prices are the best you will find anywhere. Our wines are consistently cheaper than any other merchant! Our philosophy is to provide customers with exceptional customer service, providing value with our range of wines and fantastic food. Celebrate Bendigo's Heritage past with beautiful local wines...
