    Watchbox has so much potential. It just needs some ambience - lighting & music inside plus some music outside, some seating in the sunny areas that is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. It'd be a huge hit if those improvements were made.

    We were sitting amongst the trees with so much grass for the kids to run around on. Jemma always makes you feel so welcome, and treats you like her own family. The place is extremely family friendly. The brie, mango & chicken pizza was spot on and the cider is just the icing on the cake! Always a winner in our books.

    A fabulous hidden gem in North East Victoria, run by a very enthusiastic and friendly family. Even though the weather outside was very ordinary with intermittent wind and rain, the log fire made for a cosy, welcoming atmosphere indoors. Seating is ample from small to medium groups and a substancial outdoor undercover area would be well utilised in better weather I'm sure (there were a number of people out there even on the day we visited). Try their house brewed berry cider-very nice and moorish accompanied as ours was by delicious wood-fired pizzas. We wrer entertained by a young local singer/guitarist too which was a lovely surprise. All in all, a great place to visit. We'll be back.

    A brilliantly relaxing way to enjoy a weekend lunch with family & friends. Eat indoors (with wood fire in winter!) or outdoors to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

    For a lunch, dinner or drinks & nibbles, in gorgeous surrounds, you can't go past the Watchbox Winery! The menu has a good variety & lovely selection of drinks. The atmosphere is always friendly & relaxed, with the beautiful backdrop of the Indigo Valley. Well worth a visit, you won't be dissapointed πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚

    Very enjoyable visit. Delicious wood fired oven pizza. Great kids meal which included a mini milkshake - an ideal size for little ones. Great service with very friendly staff. Will go there again.

    The pizzas were very good, although one person felt the Chicken Tandoori was a bit dry. We had an odd table configuration for 5 with 3 people along one side, one person at each end and the other side of the table butted against a wall so 3 people were essentially facing a wall. It made conversation difficult and sharing pizzas awkward. There was no water on the table which should be a basic expectation and we had to ask for cutlery as none was provided or offered. We were looking forward to completing the meal with dessert and coffee but two of the party ordered their dessert and were disappointed as one said the cream on her Cheesecake was canned and even though she had to pay an extra $1.00 for it, it was left on the plate as it wasn't fresh whipped cream as expected. The other person had Sticky date pudding that was chilled rather than warm and came with liquid cream rather than whipped fresh cream as expected. The rest of the party then chose to skip dessert. We were quite cold as the wood heater didn't heat the room. It was a special occasion (60th birthday) and so a bit disappointing. I hope they sort out these small issues as the Watchbox was previously a favourite place of mine and the new owners are still finding their feet. I'd try it again but not for a while and I'd seek other opinions first.
