The Vine Hotel Wangaratta is located in the heart of North East Victoria, the hotel offers contemporary Australian cuisine in a charming atmosphere. Enjoy dining alfresco during the lazy summer months, Or get cosy by the fire in winter
The Vine Hotel Wangaratta's history goes back to 1864 when the original licence was granted for the existing site. The present day building dates from around the 1880s and the bricks for the hotel were made on site from clay on the property.
Walking into the pub is like taking a step back in time and gives you the feeling of old world charm with chandeliers, side boards and memorabilia dating back to the turn of last century. The vast cellar is unusually large, bearing in mind it would have been dug out by hand using picks, shovels and ploughs. Legend has it that Ned Kelly used to hide here, using the tunnel as his escape route.
The Vine is considered to be a unique hotel and has long been a local landmark. It is the owner's intention to preserve and not destroy its individual character. The future of the hotel lies in its past with all the legends and stories that have persisted over the years. The Vine is open seven days a week including for lunch and dinner. A visit is a must on your sightseeing tours in and around Wangaratta.
Renowned for it's calendar of rotating events and live music, the Vine Hotel Wangaratta is popular with both locals and visitors alike. Drop in and listen to some live tunes over a local beverage and stay on for dinner.
“Great food at reasonable prices, and very pleasant staff to match, I highly recommend The Vine for Birthdays, engagement parties or just a lovely dinner with your partner, just can't beat The Vine.” Adam

Your special day
North Wangaratta's The Vine Hotel is arelaxed, country wedding venue with a rich history. Built in the late 1800s - roughly around 1880, this historic hotel was once said to be a hiding spot of notorious bushranger Ned Kelly, who apparently used tunnels to escape law enforcement. Today, the hotel stands just as proud as it did during the 19th century, with the local family who own the property having preserved the character of this Australian treasure. The pub’soriginal red bricks, rustic finishings, and old-time chandeliers transport visitors back in time, while newer additions perfectly set the scene for country weddings.
An ideal spot for both ceremonies and receptions, this hotel has everything a couple could need to host a memorable wedding. Let’s start with the incredible food, shall we? The Vine Hotel is near-synonymous with hearty tucker, with the venue consistently receiving rave reviews for theirdelicious, bountiful meals. Abundant chicken parmigianas and generous scotch fillets are crowd favourites, and could make excellent options for an alternate-drop style wedding menu. Meanwhile, guests will be thrilled by theextensive cocktail list and range of spirits, craft beer, and local wine.
This phenomenal culinary experiencecould only be made better by the lovely setting. Rural and relaxed, The Vine Hotel is often sought-after for itsundercover deck and dog-friendly beer garden, which both provide a comfortable, scenic spot for conversation and a good drink. These sites make terrific reception and ceremony locations, too.
THE guests at Daniel Ladgrove and Nerilee Pace's engagement party were part of an unexpected, but delightful, ruse that might have even impressed 'old Ned' who (it was said) dug a tunnel to hide from the police at the Vine Hotel back in the day.
The couple invited 50 of their nearest and dearest to share relaxing, joyous grazing boards, finger food and pizza at the Vine Hotel on a Monday evening.
Nothing out of the ordinary; just a gathering together of family and friends at the historic Vine Hotel in North Wangaratta - or so they thought.
Suddenly there was a short, formal service, Daniel and Nerilee were pronounced husband and wife, and the celebration and joy grew.
"One of my favourite parts of the night was looking across the room at Dan with our family and friends and seeing him so incredibly happy," Nerilee said.
"He looked so happy that he was going to spend his life with little old me."
"We wanted a no-fuss wedding and let Melissa from Pretty Party Co run wild and do her thing.
"It was the best decision ever.
"Every event she puts together is incredible and to walk into our wedding and be completely surprised at the set up was amazing.
"We hadn't been involved in any of the decorating, but the beautiful Vine Hotel couldn’t have looked more perfect."
With a brand new outdoor kitchen, cocktail van, an undercover fully heated and cooled decking area, beer garden, two indoor bars with more than 10 beers on tap, a huge selection of the best wines, premium spirits, soft drinks and cordials from the region, an open fire and a heritage listed building, the Vine Hotel is the perfect venue to hold your wedding reception and/or ceremony.
Built in the late 1800s, the hotel stands as proud as it did during the 19th century, the character of this Australian treasure preserved by the local family who owns it.
The pub’s original red bricks, rustic finishings and old-time chandeliers transport visitors back in time, while newer additions perfectly set the scene for relaxed, country weddings.
Already known for its hearty tucker, the Vine offers an alternate-drop style wedding menu with pub favourites like chicken parmigiana and scotch fillet and the staff ensure attention to detail alongside personal, thoughtful service.
The rural setting offers an abundance of photographic opportunities against the backdrop of the heritage building and your guests will be well cared for in a comfortable, scenic spot enjoying conversation and a good drink.
So whether you need an intimate wedding venue, or one that can cater for up to 250 guests, call the Vine today.
Surprise! You’re attending a Wedding today!

We’re proud to have injected just over $43,397 straight into the pockets of musicians & their tech crews in the last financial year. Although there we constant restrictions put on our venue due to covid. We complied & didn’t let this stop us from putting on covid safe events. For the frst 3 months, we supported our local original artists by giving 100% of ticket sales to the artists. We always work out a fair split & guarantee so the artists can make a profit. We also offer meals & drinks to all artists, as well as accomodation when needed. Our OneMusic license is always renewed.
We know the Victorian live music scene was completely decimated overnight and is still one of the worst afected industry sectors. 700 Victorian live music venues including the Vine went silent with 100,000 gigs cancelled during 2020 alone.
WE LOVE MUSIC!

WANGARATTA'S Vine Hotel move to solar power has helped win it ‘Best Environmental Initiative’ at this year’s Australian Hotel Association State Awards for Excellence.
Owner and manager Jimmy Ladgrove said it was a “fantastic” award to win.
“Last year we installed 144 solar panels on our roof and some vacant land so the pub is fully solar powered during the day,” he said.
“We also installed a misting system to keep patrons cool and the water gets pumped from our on-site well, plus our lawns are 100 per cent watered from recycle treated water.
“We have plans to build accommodation at The Vine to meet the demand in the area due to the cycle tourism boom and these will also be environmentally friendly also.”
The winners of the State Awards for Excellence were announced at a gala dinner, attended by 1000 guests, at The Palladium at Crown on Monday evening.
