Love heading here for a Friday night treat. $35/hd gets you a very generous starter (picture below), all the pizza you can eat and dessert, doesn't get any better than that! Great atmosphere, sit outside in the warmer months, warm fireplace going in the cooler...More

We went in a group of fourteen for Sunday lunch. The menu was disappointing and very restrictive especially for non meat eaters. I had a bowl of brocolini with salsa verde as my main and it was very over cooked. My husbands pork was uninspiring....More

This $35 a head Friday night pizza meal was dreadful. Unpolished staff served a bland and tasteless meal. As a Mclaren vale local I felt embarrassed to think that the other guests had been presented with such poor food. We are a region with supposedly...More

Description
Woodstock Coterie, built in 1988, was designed to nestle among the towering century old gum trees. The design took into consideration the location of each of these amazing native trees. Not one significant tree was cut down to accommodate building the restaurant. Hence, the Coterie's unique semicircle shape. Rammed earth walls encase the dining area, providing a warm feel and at the same time complementing The Coterie's unique quintessentially Australian landscape. Glass doors and windows frame the lush native gardens creating an atrium feel for the discerning patron. Upstairs there is a mezzanine level available for private tastings, conferences and functions.The name 'Coterie' was chosen for the word's meaning; the gathering of a group of people, or rather a circle of friends, for a specific purpose... that for us includes great food, good company and finest wines at Woodstock
