Rochester Tavern and Accommodation
A Classic Victorian established in Central Victoria in the 1870’s affectionately restored to its original Grandeur.
The Rochester Tavern provides a diverse and engaging interlude, with its selection of Bars, Lounges and Dining rooms. This combined with the gracious Verandah, the crackling fireplaces and the pressed metal ceilings; you won’t be disappointed by the magnificent style this fine old building has to offer!
When we talk about style you cannot miss the wonderment of the Redgum Bar. Situated at the front of the Tavern this magnificent piece takes you back in time whether just relaxing having a light lunch, an Ice Cold Beer, Local Wine or a Coffee and Cake or by the fireplace, you will feel just at home with the calm atmosphere and the warm friendly staff.
As a part of the Heathcote wine region, the Tavern boasts a tempting wine selection featuring high-quality varieties from local vignerons along with an abundant selection of wines from numerous other regions. Red wine lovers will be perplexed with the range at their disposal, whilst there are more than enough whites and sparkling to satisfy any wine buff.
Should you need a breath of fresh air; there are two options available. One of which is the lovely courtyard directly off the redgum bar and the second is the Peppercorn Lounge, a large paved beer garden featuring a delightful rustic mural and the Majestic Old Peppercorn tree.
Upstairs you will find four tastefully renovated rooms fully appointed inclusive of en-suite and the fabulous verandah overlooking Moore Street, the historic railway line and the beautiful Lions Park with its age old Date Palms and heritage listed rotunda.
Rochester Wine Tavern is surely the “ENVY” of all its rivals!
