saturday sessions


It’s harvest in the Macedon Ranges so we are taking advantage of the abundance of local produce.

We are loving our farmer’s market shop Saturday morning and our preparations for the menu in the afternoon. (Listed below.)

Please note, we do our best to accommodate requests for dietary changes and 24 hours notice is necessary for this menu. With sustainable practice in mind booking in advance allows us to only purchase what is required for the menu. This allows us to minimise or completely cancel waste.

We are open Saturday evenings at 6pm from January to March 29, 2018 with a totally seasonal and market driven set menu. Please make a reservation as this helps us with our direct grower orders, our own garden harvest, staffing matters and allows us to offer maximum value with zero waste.

Restaurant Woodend


Colenso has a brand new address.

Our address is 35 High St, Kyneton VIC 3444.

Kyneton is approximately 80 kms from Melbourne and is

a leisurely 60 minute drive up the Calder Freeway.

Colenso appreciates that bills will be paid as one payment.

On public holidays we introduce a 10% surcharge. This in part covers a penalty rate to compensate our staff for work made while others rest.

With notice, we can make a cake for your special gathering.
