MASONS OF BENDIGO
25 QUEEN ST, BENDIGO 5443 3877 MASONSOFBENDIGO.COM.AU Mcivor Farm Berkshire pork and Huntly pheasant, Inglewood beef and Yupunya chicken – in the heart of historic Bendigo, you’ll find a roll call of the Goldfields’ best producers shown off to excellent effect at Masons. In a stylish dining room, Nick and Sonia Anthony serve an extensive sharestyle menu. Generous at every turn, that Mcivor Farm pork features fillet, crisp belly, breaded shoulder, morcilla and crackling, while an equally abundant rendition of lamb many ways that’s finished with beetroot crackers is completely delicious.
Service could do with a keener eye (empty glasses on the table throughout the meal), though no faulting the dessert platter of 10 tastes. ■ Must-eat dish Roast Wanbi Plains lamb ■ Cuisine Contemporary ■ Price $$ ■ Bookings Yes ■ Chefs Nick & Sonia Anthony ■ Open Lunch & dinner Tue-sat ■ Instagram @masons_of_bendigo
