The Ox and Hound Bistro

Restaurant and Cafe

Reservations are essential and must be made online (via the website). Please take note of the T&Cs when booking. The team look forward to seeing you soon.

Ideally located in the main street of historic Beechworth, The Ox and Hound Bistro occupies a quintessential shopfront and offers a relaxed dining space.

Inside, the signature ‘wattle branch’ chandeliers bathe a beautifully simple dining room with golden light. Woven cane bistro chairs, a pressed metal ceiling, fine wine glasses and cloth napery welcome diners to what is a cosy dining space seating just 30 guests.

Chef and owner Sean Ford is fuelled by an obsession with rustic French and Italian cooking, expect a menu stacked with comforting bistro classics: chicken liver parfait, goat cheese souffle, fettuccine with wild rabbit and the signature honey pannacotta. Foraged foods and home-grown produce abound – they grow varieties of carefully selected heirloom vegetables and fruit exclusively for the restaurant.

Coming in at just under 70 wines, the list has an intimate, distinctly local flavour. That said, bottles from the best regions of Europe slip effortlessly into the mix to include: Chenin Blanc, Burgundy and Barolo.
